Longest Winning Streaks in ODIs.

As I wrote earlier, India now hold the record for the longest winning streak while chasing. Another important streak is also assuming interest - longest winning streak. India is right now on a winning streak of 8 matches.

Not surprisingly Australia lead with 21. Top three positions are:

Australia - 21
South Africa - 12
West Indies - 11.

But the next 19 places are all held by streaks of lengths between 8 and 10.

India's best performance before has been also 8 - twice. Once in mid-1980s and the other time in the world cup 2003. So the first step is to better that. Winning the present series 7-0 will take our streak to 11 and put us in the third position. Then to Abu Dhabi.
