Following their memorable four-wicket win against Pakistan at the T20 World Cup 2022 in Melbourne on Sunday, India broke the record of the Australian team for most wins in international cricket in a calendar year. Australia earlier held the record for the most number of wins in a calendar year and achieved the feat with 38 wins from 47 matches in 2003. India now has 39 wins in 56 matches this year. The Indian team has had an excellent year so far, registering wins against most opponents.
India started the year with a home series against West Indies where they whitewashed the visitors 3-0 in both ODIs and T20Is.
Following that, India played a home series against Sri Lanka. They won the T20I series by 3-0 and the Test series by 2-0.
After this, Team India played a five-match T20I series at home against South Africa, which was drawn at 2-2 after the final match was washed away by rain.
The team then toured England to play the one left-off test, which India lost. Though India registered ODI and T20I series victories with a similar margin of 2-1.
Ireland was next conquered by the team as India eased past the challenge to win the series 2-0.
West Indies was the next assignment for India as the team reached the Caribbean shores to play a T20 and an ODI series. India won the T20 series 3-0 and sealed the ODI series 4-1.
