The Indian cricket team toured Australia from 24 November to 10 January 2015. The Test series consisted 4 Test matches. First Test was originally scheduled on 4 December in Brisbane, but it was postponed due to the death of Philip Hughes, who was dead by hitting ball in his head. So, Adelaide hosted the first Test from December 9. Due to injury, MS Dhoni was not part of the first Test against Australia. So, Virat Kohli was given responsibility for leading the Indian cricket team in the first Test. It was the first ever match as a captain for Virat Kohli in an International cricket match.

He wrote that,"Throwback to this very special and important test in our journey as the test team that we are today. Adelaide in 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 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. All of us committed to it."

"This will always remain a very important milestone in our journey as a test side," he added. 

Though India lost the first test as well as series with 2-0, Virat Kohli said that it taught us that anything is possible & it remains as an important milestone in his journey.
