Dhoni, however, was a failure in Tests. He presided over a 4-0 Test series thrashing India got in Australia in 2011-12. He also lost the ODI series 4-1 in 2015-16.
Dhoni also jointly led the Indian side in the 2014-15 series where India lost 2-0.
Prior to the 2007-08 season when India won the tri-series for the first time under Dhoni, none of the touring Indian teams had won any series in Australia.
While India have managed to win series in Australia in all formats, none of the other three top Asian Test playing nations — Pakistan, Sri Lanka or Bangladesh have won a series in the longest format Down Under.
