New skipper, new coach and new strategies is what making India, a supreme power in the longest format of the game. The new Indian captain Virat Kohli had some distinguished footsteps while it came down to captaincy, majorly he opting for five regular bowlers in a game.

The strategy cleared suggests that there is no place or margin of errors for any player right from the openers to the tail.

Virat’s captaincy record has been outstanding so far after taking the full time reigns from MS Dhoni.

Kohli clinched victory in the series against South Africa at home while his team’s performance was clinical in Sri Lanka too where they came back to take away the series after going down 0-1 after the first match. The only series that went into a draw was against Bangladesh where the only Test match ended in a draw.

There was a lot of talking about his and team’s performance outside the sub-continent but the Delhi dasher’s young side along with new head coach Anil Kumble contradicted the statements against them. Maybe, the success at the Caribbean was an outcome of former Test skippers Dhoni’s send off speech in Bangalore.

Talking about India’s long cricketing season which kicks off from September 22 at Green Park, Kanpur against New Zealand, Virat’s young brigade is all set to take up the challenge of Kane Williamson-led Kiwi side.

The  three-match series will then move to Eden Gardens, Kolkata before finishing at one of the newest Test venues, Indore’s Holkar Stadium.

Kiwis last visited India in 2012 for a two-match Test series and faced a solid hammering in both clashes at the hands of MS Dhoni-led side.

The series saw an emergence of two Test cricketing stars Virat Kohli and Cheteshwar Pujara who were aggressive as well as responsible in their approach when it was most needed.

A hundred from Pujara in the first clash anchored India’s win by an innings and 115 runs against the visiting side while a hundred and a fifty from Kohli helped India whitewash the series 2-0.

Though, this is going to be a new team with some new faces but the home side would look forward to carry on the winning legacy.

Interestingly, New Zealand have never won a Test on Indian soil.
