They will attain the same superiority in ODIs if they edge past Australia in the ongoing five-ODI series. However, that is not a matter of concern for the Indians. The main test, if truth be told, will be in countries such as South Africa, England, and Australia.</p> <p></p>Speaking to <i>Cricbuzz</i>, former Australia captain <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/michael-clarke/" target="_blank">Michael Clarke</a> said, India are the No. 1 Test side in the world. They are a very good team. They have a huge opportunity as they are slated to play South Africa, England and Australia abroad over the next 15 months. If they win those three series, they will certainly rank as a great outfit - perhaps one of the best-ever Indian sides. <p></p> <p></p>India beat England 1-0 under the captaincy of Rahul Dravid, their overall third win on the English soil. However, South Africa and England are still the unchartered territories. <p></p> <p></p>In 2007, Dravid s team thrashed South Africa in the opening Test of the three-Test series, but the hosts staged a comeback and won the remaining two. <p></p> <p></p>In 2008, India came close to winning a series in Australia, after they won the Perth Test. However, a few umpiring howlers pushed them on the wrong side of the result. <p></p> <p></p>Kohli, so far, has won one series in West Indies, two in Sri Lanka, and five in India. Whether he emerges victorious in South Africa, England, and Australia, is a question only time can tell.
