India continue to dominate at home, beat 5th straight opponents in bilateral home series
Winning Game 2 in Raipur on Saturday against a distraught New Zealand side completed the 7th straight win in the bilateral ODI series at home for the Men in Blue.
It’s quite striking how ruthless this Indian side is at home, considering Australia, South Africa, England and New Zealand – all bit the dust when they faced the Indians in their own backyard.
India’s dominance since December 2019:
The Indians are coming off their 7th consecutive ODI series victory on home soil, since December 2019.
India’s 7 consecutive wins:
The last time an Indian team was violated at home was by Australia, who recorded a 3-2 series win on a spring 2019 tour.
Since then, India led by Kohli and Rohit have shown total dominance over their home opponents.
1st against the West Indies (2-1):
India began their dominance with a 2-1 victory over West Indies in December 2019. The men in blue started the series with a loss in Chennai but then won the last two games at Vizag and Cuttack to get their hands on the trophy.
2nd against Australia (2-1):
Then it was up to them to avenge their previous loss to Australia. It was January 2020 when India pulled off an ODI triumph over the Aussies on home soil. Again, the Indian team came back from 1-0 down to win the last two games, completing another series win.
Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan were the starters with the bat, while Mohammed Shami was brilliant with the ball.
3rd against England (2-1):
After the long break due to the COVID pandemic, India started their home series against mighty England. The world champions were in great form but struggled to endure the Indian gladiators from the subcontinent. In the deciding series in Pune, India held on to win by 7 points to clinch another bilateral affair.
4th against the West Indies (3-0):
West Indies were beaten at home by India in February last year. The Caribbean had no answer for Indian supremacy as the Men in Blue took a 3-0 free kick. Rohit Sharma got off to a perfect start at home to his stint as captain as India won all three matches played in Ahmedabad.
5th against South Africa (2-1):
It was another impressive series win for the Indians, this time South Africa fell victim. India came back from a 1-0 deficit to record their 5th straight win at home. This series saw the upset of Shreyas Iyer as the superb hitter scored 191 runs in the series at an average of 191. Ishan Kishan and Sanju Samson also had decent outings for the home side.

6th against Sri Lanka (3-0):
India passed the first mission of 2023 with flying colors. Virat Kohli reinvented himself with the bat while Mohammed Siraj dismantled the Lankan hitters as India once again topped their island neighbors in a two-sided series. Dasun Shanaka was the only interpreter for the visitors, but could not prevent the mutilation.
7th against New Zealand (2-0*):
India are coming off another series win, this time against New Zealand. Shubman Gill sent India home in Game 1 with an incredible batting performance. Shubman Gill scored a double cent in Game 1 and became the youngest player to reach the milestone.

In game two, supreme bowling in game two by Mohammed Shami and co. secured India’s series victory over the Blackcaps. If they can win the final match in Indore in three days, Rohit Sharma and his troops will take the top spot in the ICC ODI rankings.
