India’s new limited-overs format captain Virat Kohli’s spotless captaincy record was dented last week when England beat his side by five runs in the third and final ODI at Eden Gardens, Kolkata.
Before the match, Kohli had led India in 19 international games at home without a defeat. He had won 17 matches and drawn two.
It was under his captaincy that India were crowned the prestigious ICC Test Championship Mace in October after they completed a 3-0 series win over New Zealand at home.
The 28-year-old was handed the reins of the India’s ODI and T20 before the start of the one-dayers earlier in the month, which India won 2-1.
The record-breaking series saw 2090 runs being scored, the most in any three-ODI series. In all six innings, the batting sides put up totals of more than 300. India and England now prepare for a series of three T20 internationals which start later this week.
