Kohli recalls the defeat which led to Test cricket domination by India

Virat Kohli is clearly missing Test cricket. The Indian captain on Tuesday took to social media to share his journey as Test captain which started six years ago. 

Kohli recalled how the 2014 Adelaide Test, which India lost, was the turning point in shaping the current Indian Test team.

"Throwback to this very special and important test in our journey as the Test team that we are today. Adelaide 2014 was a game filled with emotion on both sides and an amazing one for people to watch too. Although we didn't cross the line being so close, it taught us that anything is possible if we put our mind to it because we committed to doing something which seemed very difficult to begin with but almost pulled it off," Kohli said in his post. 

"All of us committed to it. This will always remain a very important milestone in our journey as a test side," he added in his post. India reached the number one position in the ICC Test rankings under the captaincy of Kohli.

Kohli, who played amazing knocks of 141 and 115 in that Adelaide Test, was unable to save his team from a 48-run defeat against Australia. 

The Indian skipper had recently said that he feels blessed that he’s able to play Test cricket for India. "Nothing comes close to playing an intense game in whites. What a blessing to be able to play Test cricket for India,"  he wrote on Instagram.
