Change is everything

Virat Kohli has captained India in 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 Test matches*. The most incredible fact that I can report from this is that India has never fielded the SAME playing 11 in consecutive matches under his watch. Every match has featured a change from the previous one.

India has lost only 2 Tests. I guess there is some method to his madness.

Update: Sourav Ganguly once had a 29 Test streak like this as captain. That's done and dusted with now!

P.S. Yes, I know that injuries have forced his hand on multiple occasions.

* Updated as of the Kolkata Test that started on November 15th 2017 against Sri Lanka
