Kohli’s batting record in captaincy is staggering; The figures are like this !!


  • Kohli has the best batting record in ODI captaincy
  • Kohli has scored 21 centuries during this period
  • On average, Dhoni is just behind Kohli

The all-time great captains of world cricket include Ricky Ponting of Australia and MS Dhoni of India. While some captains have focused on captaincy, batting has deteriorated. But people like Ponting were in great form even when he was captain.

Virat Kohli is the fifth highest run scorer in ODIs as captain. Ricky Ponting tops the list with 8897 runs from 230 innings. MS Dhoni (6641), Stephen Fleming (6295) and Arjuna Rantunga (5608) are in the next position. But Kohli’s batting record is much higher than the others.

Kohli led the team in 95 matches and played 91 innings at that stage. Kohli averaged 72.65 with 5449 runs. No other captain on the front line has come close to Kohli on average. Dhoni is second with an average of 53.56. Ricky Ponting is number one in terms of runs. He has scored 8897 runs in 220 innings.
