When the 4th and final Test commences against England in Ahmedabad on Thursday, Indian cricket captain Virat Kohli would be equalling Indian captain MS Dhoni’s Indian record of most Tests as captain in 60 Tests. 

Kohli is also 17 runs away from 12,000 international runs as captain, a feat achieved only by Australia's Ricky Ponting and South Africa's Graeme Smith. Ponting scored 15,440 runs as Australia skipper, while Graeme Smith had 14,878 runs under his belt while leading South Africa.

Kohli is also one century away from surpassing Ricky Ponting for most tons as international captain. The last time he crossed the three-figure mark was in the day-night Test against Bangladesh in 2019. It would be his 42nd century while leading India.

He could also equal Clive Lloyd's record of 36 Test victories if India go on to win the match.

He would go joint-fourth on the list of Test captains with most wins if he leads India to victory in the fourth Test.

While Kohli is yet to hit a century in the ongoing series, he is the fourth-highest run-scorer, behind Joe Root, Rohit Sharma and Ravichandran Ashwin.

Kohli hit two half-centuries in the first two Tests of the series, which were played at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai.

India is leading series 2-1. If they can avoid defeat in the fourth Test, India would qualify for the final of the inaugural World Test Championship.
