If Shikhar Dhawan wins the third match, then as a captain, he will make a special record of clean sweep in the first ODI series. MS Dhoni, Virat Kohli and Sourav Ganguly have not been able to do this as captain in ODIs. Dhoni is the most successful captain of Team India in ODIs. They had suffered a massive 2-4 defeat against Australia in their first series. They could not win a single match out of the first three matches.
Kohli also started with a loss
Virat Kohli played his first ODI as captain against Sri Lanka in June 2013. Sri Lanka defeated Team India by a huge margin of 161 runs. However, after this Kohli was successful in winning the next 8 matches. On the other hand, talking about Sourav Ganguly, he too could not win the first match as a captain. In September 1999, West Indies defeated Team India by 42 runs in an ODI match. Ganguly could win only one of the first 3 matches as a captain.
Dhawan is also on top in terms of scoring runs.
In the current series, Shikhar Dhawan has not only remained at the top as a captain, but he has also scored the most runs so far. Dhawan scored 115 runs in 2 matches with a half-century. The average is 115. He has hit 12 fours and 1 six. Suryakumar Yadav has scored 84 runs, Deepak Chahar has scored 69 and Manish Pandey has scored 63 runs for India. In the final match, all the players would like to take this performance further. Ishan Kishan has also scored a half-century.
