Mohammed Azharuddin still tops the list with 90 ODI wins for India as a Captain, but soon approaching is MS Dhoni with 88 wins. There is quiet possibility of him overtaking Azharuddin in the ongoing ODI series against England. Dhoni needs 3 more ODI wins to become the most successful ODI captain for India. After Dhoni we Ganguly Dravid and Kapil Dev on the 3rd, 4th and 5th position respectively.

Virat Kohli, who is also considered to be the future captain of the Indian ODI team is also on the list with 9 wins in the 12 matches that he captained for India. But still nothing really can be said who will be the best captain in ODIs for India until and unless he makes the team win not only in India but also on overseas pitches.
