Indian captain Virat Kohli has become the first-ever player in the history of cricket to be a part of 50 Internationals victories in Tests, One Day Internationals and T20 Internationals format.

The Indian One Day Internationals and Test Cricket captain Kohli achieved this enormous milestone on Monday, December 6 after India’s victory over the New Zealand National Cricket Team in the second Test match of the two-match Test series at the iconic Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai.

India won the second Test by 372 runs and this was India’s biggest ever win in terms of runs in the history of Test cricket. Also, India has won the 2-match Test series by 1-0 as the first match between the teams at Green Park, Kanpur ended in a draw. With the win, India are back on the number 1 spot in the ICC Test rankings. Also, this was India’s 14th consecutive Test series win at home.

India’s next assignment will begin from December 26 as Virat Kohli-led side will tour South Africa for three Tests and three ODIs.

Congratulations @imVkohli. The first player with 50 international wins in each format of the game,” BCCI tweeted.

After winning the series by 1-0 against New Zealand during the post-match presentation Kohli said:

“To come back with a win again, it’s a great feeling and a clinical performance. You want individuals to step up. The first Test was good, and it was a clinical performance here.”

Kohli talked about the Kanpur Test and lauded the New Zealand batter for avoiding the defeat against India. He said:

We discussed the performance and the opposition played out a good draw. The bowlers tried all their best, but the Kiwi batsmen stuck it out really well in Kanpur. Here there was more bounce and the fast bowlers got assistance as well, so it gave us a better chance to win the Test match.”

Virat Kohli further added that his mindset is to take Indian cricket forward with the new management and set the standards high for the team.

The mindset is the same to take Indian cricket forward, even with the new management. It’s important to keep the standards of Indian cricket and make sure it’s always growing.”

Virat Kohli also said that the South Africa tour will be a big challenge for the team and he was hoping for a good performance. He asserted:

” South Africa is a good challenge. We built it up in England and South Africa last time, and Australia was an accumulation of all that experience. South Africa is a tough challenge and a win that we want to achieve as a team. Hopefully, we can play in South Africa the way we know we can play, and win the series.”
