The second Test match of the five-match series between India and England has started at Lord’s on Thursday. Today once again Indian captain Virat Kohli lost the toss. With this, Virat Kohli became the Indian captain to lose the most toss in Tests as soon as he lost the toss, while in England he lost his 8th consecutive toss. Virat is getting many reactions on social media after this unsolicited record.
Indian skipper Virat Kohli and the toss have often not been in good shape. After losing the toss in Nottingham, Virat Kohli also lost the toss at Lord’s. With this, he has lost his 8th toss and 8th consecutive toss as captain in England. Let us tell you that before this, the Indian captain has played only 8 Test matches as a captain in England. This means they have never won the toss in England.
With this, captain Virat Kohli has equaled Sir Don Bradman in terms of losing the most toss on England’s soil. In this case, former Australia captain Allan Border is at number one after losing 11 tosses.

Reactions have also been seen on social media on this unsolicited record of the Indian captain. Many people have called him unlucky (unfortunate), while many people have asked to remove him from the captaincy as well.
It is worth noting that in the first Nottingham Test too, captain Kohli made an unwanted record by getting out on a golden duck. He became the victim of the Golden Duck for the third time as a captain and he became the captain to be the victim of the Golden Duck most times as an Indian captain. Earlier, Lala Amarnath, Kapil Dev and Sourav Ganguly had two golden ducks in their names.
