Dhoni has no answer in ODI-T20
Under the leadership of former Indian captain MS Dhoni, the Indian team has achieved many great achievements. Dhoni is the only captain in world cricket who has won three major ICC trophies. But do you know that Dhoni is the most successful captain in ODIs and T20s against Sri Lanka. There is currently no Indian captain around him. He captained 41 matches in ODIs against Sri Lanka and registered 25 wins. At the same time, under his leadership, India lost 13 matches while 1 match was tied and 2 did not result.
Dhoni led India in 10 T20 Internationals against Sri Lanka in addition to ODIs. Under his leadership, India won 6 matches and lost 4 matches. After Dhoni, India’s most successful captain in T20 has been Rohit Sharma. ‘Hitman’ Rohit led India in 5 matches against Sri Lanka and won 4. Under his captaincy, India had to face defeat in one match. Rohit is followed by Virat Kohli, who captained in 4 matches and won 2 matches. Also lost in 2 matches.
Kohli won in test matches
While Dhoni captained well against Sri Lanka in ODI and T20 International cricket, Virat Kohli was successful in beating in Test matches. He is the most successful Indian captain in Tests against Sri Lanka. He led India in 9 Tests against Sri Lanka, out of which the team won 6 matches. Under his captaincy, the team had to lose only 1 Test while 2 matches were left on a draw. Mohammad Azharuddin is second in the list after Kohli, under whose captaincy India won 5 out of 8 Tests and drew 3. Dhoni is at number three in Tests. Under his captain, Team India made three names out of 6 matches and lost one. Two Tests ended in a draw.
