Virat Kohli is a successful captain allround. He has been extremely successful in the T20 format as well. When he became T20I captain, He had to match the record of Mahindra Singh Dhoni, who was not only successful but also won the ICC T20 World Cup for India in 2007.

Virat has achieved a better win percentage for India in T20I than MS Dhoni. However, It is important to mention that MS Dhoni has captained twice as many matches as Virat did, so Virat Kohli still has a long way to match MS Dhoni in terms of matches played.
