India cricket team journey to No 1 in Test

In July 2007, India was No. 5 in ICC Test rankings.

The Journey after that:

NOV-DEC 2007
Beat Pakistan 1-0 at home in 3-Test series

DEC 2007-JAN 2008
Lost 1-2 to Australia in Oz (4-Test series)

Drew South Africa 1-1 at home (3-Test series)

JUL-AUG 2008
Lost to Sri Lanka 1-2 in Lanka (3-Test series)

OCT-NOV 2008
Beat Australia 2-0 at home in 4-Test series

DEC 2008
Beat England 1-0 at home (2-Test series)

Beat New Zealand 1-0 in NZ (3-Test series)

NOV-DEC 2009
Beat Sri Lanka 2-0 (3-Test series)

And today, they are the No 1 in the ICC test cricket rankings.

Under Unbeaten Dhoni:

  • M S Dhoni is the only Indian captain to have won his first 4 Tests as skipper
  • Under Dhoni's captaincy India have won 7 out of his first 10 Tests
  • India is yet to lose a Test under his captaincy
