India's incredible journey to invincibility: A look back at record 11 successive Test series wins at home




Sachin Tendulkar and Virender Sehwag were still active cricketers and more than half of the current lot, including Ajinkya Rahane and Rohit Sharma had not made their debut then; that’s how long and dominating India have been on home turf. The journey had started in the February of 2013, when MS Dhoni was still the captain, hoping to make a strong comeback against the mighty Australians after the unanticipated English domination at home. The script has now entered record books as Virat Kohli-led India defeated South Africa in Pune by an innings and 137 runs to win the second Test of the three-game series and subsequently registered an unprecedented 11th successive series win on home turf. Australia’s twin 10 consecutive series win in the format was deservedly considered stuff of legends, but history will record India’s present run of 11 straight wins, as godly.
