Team India ended the long tour of Australia on a high after beating the hosts in the third and the final ODI. After the historic Test series, the Indian team extended it's dominance in the ODI series as well by winning the series 2-1. Even though India won the ODI series comprehensively this time around, historically, it hasn't been an easy task to conquer the Australian team in their own backyard. 

Team India does not have a great ODI record playing in Australia. Even before the golden era of Australian cricket, Australia has always been a tough side to beat at home, and not only India but all the visiting teams had little success against the home team. 

However, three Indian teams have been able to win an ODI series in Australia. Here are those three captains under whom the Indian team won ODI series in Australia.

It was a rare occasion where the visiting team started the ODI series as favourites against Australia in Australia. Ever since the bans on Steve Smith and David Warner, the Australian team has been in shambles and had struggled to find any kind of rhythm in ODI cricket. On the other hand, Team India was in top form coming into the ODI series. And despite losing the first match of the series, the Indian team came back strongly in the last two matches to win the ODI series 2-1.

Virat Kohli was exceptional with the bat and also led the side beautifully. His team selections were spot on and he was extremely impressive in the field. Mahendra Singh Dhoni also performed exceedingly well in the series and was named the Player of the series. This was also India's first ever bilateral series win in ODIs in Australia.
