WHO CAPTAINED INDIA IN FIRST EVER T20I
This was a question that was raised on Social Media.
If you want to know the answer, then the captain of India in the first ever T20I is Virat Kohli. He scored a duck in that match but has gone on to become one of the best captains in world cricket. He led India to victory in ICC World Cup 2019 and has also captained them in many other tournaments since then.
Virat Kohli is known for his aggressive batting style and great fielding abilities as well as excellent leadership qualities which have helped him become one of the best batsmen in world cricket today!
MS Dhoni is a former Indian cricketer and captain of the Indian national team. He played for Chennai Super Kings in the Indian Premier League (IPL) and was the captain of Royal Challengers Bangalore before his retirement from all forms of cricket in 2015. Dhoni has been described as “the best finisher in ODI history” by Geoff Boycott and Virender Sehwag.
He led India to victory at the 2007 ICC World Twenty20, 2009 ICC Champions Trophy and 2013 ICC Champions Trophy tournaments; he is one of only three players who won all three titles (alongside Ricky Ponting and Kumar Sangakkara). In addition to these victories, Dhoni also led India to semi-finals at two more editions: 2011 Cricket World Cup and 2012 ICC World Twenty20; they lost both times against Pakistan by narrow margins in group stage matches despite being favourites. In 2013, he became India’s most successful Test captain when he surpassed Kapil Dev’s record 34 wins (25 test wins/9 drawn) during home season against West Indies. As an individual player in ODIs he holds many records including most runs scored both overall & per innings; most catches taken both overall & per innings; highest partnership with Rohit Sharma among others. At present he holds 11th rank among active Test players, 14th rank among active ODI players globally since December 2014

Suresh Raina is the captain of India in first ever T20I. Suresh Raina is a left-handed batsman and wicketkeeper. He was born on October 11, 1985 in Allahabad, Uttar Pradesh.
Suresh Raina made his debut for India against Sri Lanka on August 23, 2007 at Nagpur as an opener but could not impress much with the bat so he had to wait for another two years before making his next appearance for India again against New Zealand at Ahmedabad where he scored 37 runs off 36 balls which included 2 fours as well as 1 sixer to help India win by 3 wickets
- Virat Kohli is the captain of India in T20I cricket.
- MS Dhoni was the captain of India in T20I cricket.
- Yuvraj Singh and Suresh Raina were also captains of this team at some point in time, but they are no longer active players today.
India has had a great start to their T20I career as they have won all their matches so far. Virat Kohli has been leading the team from the front and has been doing really well with the bat as well. The next match will be against New Zealand on 19th February at Eden Gardens, Kolkata and we are sure that India will win again!
