Not every skipper gets to celebrate an overseas Test win as it needs a lot more grit and gumption to forge it. However, it gets even sweeter when these victories come against the mighty SENA nations who are absolute stalwarts of the sport.
Before we quickly take a glance at the iconic leaders of the game, let me give you a heads-up about the SENA nations which is nothing but an abbreviation of South Africa, England, New Zealand and Australia.
Despite South African cricket losing its sheen in recent years, they have still managed to maintain their momentum and give the other juggernauts a run for their money.
It is a remarkable feat indeed for any skipper to chronicle an overseas Test victory against these formidable contingents and yet there are a few legends who have managed to rule the roost with more than one win.
In a tweet after India’s historic victory at Lord’s last night, a user named the Asian captains with the highest number of victories away from home against these giants.
Guess what, the current Indian skipper aced the list as he surpassed the two other Pakistani captains, Wasim Akram and Javed Miandad to claim the throne.
The others mentioned in the tweet were MS Dhoni and Misbah-ul-Haq as both of them shared 3 victories each while Akram and Miandad spearheaded Pakistan to 4 overseas victories against the SENA nations.
Kohli bagged his fifth victory away from home against the mighty SENA countries to go to the top of the chart and create a significant gap between himself and the ones later in the list as the series in England has still three more matches to go.

India scripted a historic win at Lord’s last night as they successfully outclassed England, thanks to a remarkable ninth-wicket partnership between Shami and Bumrah and some brilliant bowling from the Indian pace quadruplet.
