Dhoni beats Ganguly's most Test wins

With India's massive victory over Australia in Hyderabad today, Mahendra Singh Dhoni surpassed Sourav Ganguly's record to be the most successful Test captain in India's cricket history. It was Dhoni's 22nd win in 45 Tests as captain, a remarkable winning percentage of nearly 50, and it put in the shade Sourav Ganguly's achievement of 21 victories from 49 Tests.
