Before being the full time Indian ODI captain from 2017 January series vs England at home where Dhoni decided to play just as batsman/wicketkeeper, Kohli’s Journey as Indian ODI team captain started in 2013 at West Indies. Since then, he has captained India in 17 ODIs when Dhoni has not played. India won 14 of them as Kohli also grabbed one Man of the series and few Man of the Match awards hitting multiple centuries and half-centuries. His first game as captain resulted in huge loss. Even his first game when he made ODI debut (as opener) resulted in Indian loss against Sri Lanka, but India went on to win the AWAY bilateral series under Dhoni. Since then, the 22nd ODI captain of India, Virat Kohli has created many Indian records as captain and India has rarely been at the losing end.
