Key Insights

10: India registered a winning streak of 10 matches as they defeated their opponent teams with ease. India would have continued this streak even further but Australia turned out to be a strong opponent in the 2023 World Cup final, halting India’s dominating winning run in the ODIs.

3: For the first time, India beat Australia in each of the first three matches of a bilateral ODI series between India and Australia. This happened in September 2017, and before this series, India had beaten Australia in a match in 2016, making it 4 consecutive wins. This was, however, only the second time India won 4 consecutive games against Australia, the first occurring between 1996 and 1998.

9: Australia then broke the 9-match winning streak of India in the same series by defeating India by 21 runs in the fourth ODI. With this loss, India equalled their first winning streak of 9 matches that occurred between 2008 and 2009.

5: During the 2017 ODI series against Sri Lanka, India handed a clean sweep to their neighbours by winning the series by a margin of 5-0. However, this was the second instance where India clean-swept Sri Lanka in a 5-match ODI series. The first time this happened was in 2014 when both sides played in India.

9: In February 2009, Sri Lanka broke the 9-match consecutive winning streak of India by defeating India by 68 runs. This was India’s first-longest winning streak in the ODI format.
