WTC Final: Team India ICC Records Under Kohli and MS Dhoni

 - Sakshi Post

Across all formats, Team India is one of the greatest teams in the world. At the very least, the statistics support this. They've reached the finals of ICC competitions a total of ten times, tying Australia for the most summit clash appearances. It all started with Kapil Dev's team's World Cup victory in 1983. India has proven their mettle on the grandest platform time and again.

June 23, 2013, was the last time the Indian team won an ICC title. The MS Dhoni-led team defeated England in a rain-affected 20-over match. Since then, India has been knocked out of four ICC competitions in the semi-finals and finished second in two others, including the inaugural World Test Championship.

Dhoni guided India to the 2014 T20 World Cup, 2015 World Cup, and 2016 T20 World Cup, while Kohli oversaw the 2017 Champions Trophy, 2019 World Cup, and WTC. And for the majority of these events, India was the main attraction. India cruised through the 2014 season, going unbeaten all the way to the championship.

Kohli won the ICC title as a player, but he did not win the ICC title as a captain.

Here are the results of the ICC events in which India won and lost.

1983- World Cup Final: Under the captaincy of Kapil Dev, India won the title against West Indies
