Mahendra Singh Dhoni has become the most successful Indian Test captain, surpassing Sourav Ganguly after India won the second cricket Test against Australia by an innings and 135 runs on Tuesday.

The 31-year-old Dhoni, who has recorded two World Cup wins [2007-T20, 2011-ODI], now has 22 Test wins, one more than Ganguly.

Mohammed Azharuddin is third with 14 wins while Mansur Ali Khan Pataudi and Sunil Gavaskar are tied on fourth with nine wins each.

Ganguly's record of 21 Test wins stood for eight years before Dhoni overtook him after inflicting another humiliating loss on Australia.
