Mahendra Singh Dhoni became the first Indian skipper to register six victories against Australia in Tests after India won the second Test in Hyderabad by an innings and 135 runs on Tuesday.

With 22 Test wins out of 45 (success percentage 48.88), Dhoni established an Indian record for most Test wins as captain, eclipsing Sourav Ganguly's tally of 21 victories in 49 (success percentage 42.85).

He has now won all six Tests against Australia on Indian soil.
