India-Australia ODIs: The record so far

Last updated on: January 11, 2016 09:45 IST

This is the first time India will play a bilateral series on Australian soil.

Steve Smith's side is a team in transition and it could be M S Dhoni's best chance of winning back pride in a country where he relinquished the Test captaincy.

Mahendra Singh Dhoni leads India against Australia in a five-ODI and three-T20 International series Down Under, which could well be his last as captain.

Series defeats against South Africa (home) and Bangladesh (away) have raised questions about his future at the helm.

The Australian series is considered a make-or-break for India's most successful captain.

Dhoni's greatest triumph Down Under was when India won a tri-series in 2008.

After that, India has failed to win the three ODI series, in 2009, 2012 and 2014-2015.

In the 2014-2015 tournament, played ahead of the World Cup, the Men in Blue did not win a single game in the tri-series, which also featured England.

This is the first time India is playing a bilateral series on Australian soil.

The Australians may be World champions and have defeated India in the 2015 World Cup semi-final, but Steve Smith's side is a team in transition and it could be MS' golden chance of restoring pride in a country where he relinquished the Test captaincy.

Ahead of the series Rajneesh Gupta presents the head-to-head record of the two teams.
