We bring you the list of the Captains who have won most consecutive  World Cup matches for their team. Dhoni has just surpassed Sourav Ganguly and has equalled the record of Clive Lloyd. Only Ricky Ponting is ahead of him.

Here is the complete list.

1: Ricky Ponting (24 wins): Ricky Ponting has 24 consecutive wins as captains under his belt and this is the most by any captain. The World Cup included matches , which this includes are of 2003 , 2007 and 2011. Australia managed to win 2 World Cups during this period and were defeated by India in the Quarter Finals of the 2011 World Cup.

2: Ms Dhoni* (9 wins): MS Dhoni stands second on the list with 9 consecutive wins and with India scheduled to play Zimbabwe and then with Bangladesh, it is very likely that Dhoni will reach to 11 matches atleast. These 9 matches includes the ones of 2011 and 2015. India are the defending Champions and had lost to only South Africa , and a tie against England in 2011 World Cup.

3: Clive Lloyd (9 wins): He is placed at 3rd even after having 9 consecutive wins only because of the number of matches he captained and the probability of Dhoni surpassing him is very high. He captained West Indies in 1975, 1979 and 1983 World Cups but he achieved these consecutive wins includes matches of 1975 and 1979 World Cup , both of which were won by West Indies.

4: Sourav Ganguly (8 wins): The Prince of Kolkata finds himself at the 4th position with 8 consecutive wins and he captained only in the 2003 World Cup, where India reached the finals, only to lose to Australia. But , with a young team, even that was very unexpected.
