Team Indian Captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni have equalled Ganguly’s record as he guided India past West Indies in the ongoing 2015 ICC World Cup. This means that Dhoni now has eight consecutive victories which equals Dada Army’s record back in 2003 world Cup.
After a tight win against Netherlands and a terrible loss to Australia in 2003 world cup, Indian team played together to create a record 8 consecutive victories which featured Dda’s Army defeating Zimbabwe, Namibia, England, Pakistan, Kenya, Sri Lanka, New Zealand and Kenya before losing again to Australia in the finals.
The streak however still remains India’s best winning streak ever in ODIs. However, the record equalled is the most consecutive victories in world cup. Dhoni & Co have won against West Indies, Australia, Pakistan and Sri Lanka in the 2011 edition after being defeated by South Africa at Nagpur and Pakistan, South Africa, the UAE and the West Indies in the 2015 edition.
Kapil Dev’s winning streak was four when he led India to its maiden Cricket World Cup. With the next match being against Ireland on March 10 at Auckland, Dhoni is expected to break this record given the form of Team India in this world cup so far.
