Every captain in international cricket has a dream of winning the test match in the subcontinent, especially in India. But it is not possible for everyone's dream to be fulfilled.
Defeating the Indian team is very difficult in the home and picking the Indian spinner in pitches which are tailor-made for them seems very difficult. But there are some big names that have failed as a captain on Indian soil to win a single test match, Let's take a look.
3. Michael Clarke
Australian won the World Cup under the captaincy of Michael Clarke in 2015 and had many big records to his name, but Michael Clarke's captaincy in India was bad. Clarke, who led Australia for India's tour in 2012-13 and lost 3-0 in the 4 Test series.
2. Stephen Fleming:
One of New Zealand's most successful captains, Stephen Fleming, was said to have been a great expert in keeping his whole team together. But on the Indian soil, he kept on waiting to win the Test match but the victory could not come.
Fleming had played 5 Test matches in India as captain, in which he had faced defeat in 1 test and 4 matches ended on a draw.
1. Ricky Ponting:
Ricky Ponting, the most successful captain in the International cricket, but surprisingly he has not won a single Test match in India. This successful captain, who won Australia 2 World Cup, could not even get a single chance to win a Test match on Indian soil.
Ricky Ponting has played 7 Tests in India as captain, in which he faced the defeat in 5 tests and managed to draw 2 Test matches.
