Indian skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni registered his 76th One-Day International (ODI) win, when India beat England by seven wickets.

Dhoni achieved this feat at Ranchi, his homeground where he played his first international match on Saturday.

The victory puts him in par with former Indian skipper Sourav Ganguly as the second most successful ODI Indian captain after Mohammad Azharuddin.

While Ganguly captained India in 147 ODIs, Dhoni has led the team in only 133 matches so far.

The list of most successful ODI captains in the history of cricket is topped by Ricky Ponting with 165 victories to his credit. He is followed by Allan Border (107), Hansie Cronje (99) and former Kiwi skipper Stephen Fleming (98).

Dhoni is currently eighth on the list.
