On this day 11 years ago, Virat Kohli made his debut in the longest format of the game. The right-handed Kohli made his Test debut against West Indies in Kingston, Jamaica, and recorded scores of 4 and 15 in the game. 11 years later, Kohli is one of the lynchpins of the Indian batting lineup and has made the No. 4 batting slot his own. Kohli had a very successful captaincy in the longest format of the game.

After completing 11 years in Tests, Kohli on Monday shared a video montage on Ku, which included all his major milestones in Test cricket, and captioned the post as “time flies”.

The 33-year-old Kohli has played 101 Tests so far in his career, scoring 8,043 runs at an average of 49.95, with his highest score being 254 not out.

Kohli has been going through a slump in form recently as he hasn’t registered a single ton since November 2019.

He last scored a century against Bangladesh in the Day-Night Test at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata.

Kohli had stepped down as India’s Test captain in January this year after a 1-2 series loss to South Africa in South Africa.


The right-handed batsman remains India’s most successful Test captain with 40 wins in 68 matches. Overall, he is the sixth most successful captain in the history of Test cricket behind only Graeme Smith, Allan Border, Stephen Fleming, Ricky Ponting and Clive Lloyd.

Kohli will next be seen in the one-off Test against England which will be played from July 1-5.
