India captain MS Dhoni is inching closer to Sourav Ganguly to become India's most successful captain ever — both overseas and at home — in Test cricket.

 

Dhoni recently became the most successful captain by winning 14 Test matches at home, eclipsing Mohammad Azharuddin's record of 13 wins.

 

Ganguly has the next best record with 10 wins out of a total 21 matches played at home. India under his leadership lost three matches while eight macthes were drawn. 

 

Dhoni took over the captaincy in 2008 from Anil Kumble and took India to No 1 Test rankings for the first time. India lost the crown of Test cricket last year against Dhoni's leadership against England.
