The Indian cricket team are on the verge of equalling their previous record in the third match of the five-match series against Australia at the Holkar Cricket Stadium in Indore on Saturday.
As per the Virat Kohli records a win for Virat Kohli's troops in this clash will be their ninth successive victory in the 50-over format of the game, which will be their joint longest winning streak in ODIs. The last time India won 9 straight ODIs in a row was under the leadership of MS Dhoni — from Nov 2008 to February 2009.
After Rohit Sharma and Ajinkya Rahane gave the hosts a steady start, in-form all-rounder Hardik Pandya regaled the packed stands at the Holkar Stadium with some power-packed batting lower down the order.
The previous winning run under Dhoni stretched from February 2008 to January 2009.
India's current victory run started on July 6 this year with an eight-wicket win over West Indies in the fifth and last match of that series at Sabina Park.
They took their fine form to Sri Lanka later that month where they humiliated the hosts with a 5-0 whitewash.
The men in blue had started that tour with a massive nine-wicket win at Dambulla. They won the second and third matches at Pallekele by three and six wickets respectively to rack up an unassailable 3-0 lead in the series.

According to Kohli, football is his second favourite sport.In 2014, Kohli became a co-owner of Indian Super League club FC Goa. He stated that he invested in the club with the "keenness of football" and because he "wanted football to grow in India". He added, "It's a business venture for me for the future. Cricket's not going to last forever and I'm keeping all my options open after retirement."
In September 2015, Kohli became a co-owner of the International Premier Tennis League franchise UAE Royals, and, in December that year, became a co-owner of the JSW-owned Bengaluru Yodhas franchise in Pro Wrestling League.
In November 2014, Kohli and Anjana Reddy's Universal Sportsbiz (USPL) launched a youth fashion brand WROGN. The brand started to produce men's casual wear clothing in 2015 and has tied up with Myntra and Shopper's Stop. In late 2014, Kohli was announced as a shareholder and brand ambassador of the social networking venture 'Sport Convo' based in London.
In 2015, Kohli invested ₹90 crore (US$14 million) to start a chain of gyms and fitness centres across the country. Launched under the name Chisel, the chain of gyms is jointly owned by Kohli, Chisel India and CSE (Cornerstone Sport and Entertainment), the agency which manages Kohli's commercial interests.

Kohli was signed up by sports agent Bunty Sajdeh of Cornerstone Sport and Entertainment after the 2008 Under-19 World Cup. Sajdeh recalls, "I didn’t go after them after they became stars. In fact, I watched Virat at the 2008 ICC Under-19 World Cup in Kuala Lumpur. I was mighty impressed with his attitude and the way he was marshalling his team. He had that spark. And I told Yuvi to set up the meeting. Sajdeh manages Kohli's endorsement deals, along with those of other Indian cricketers Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharmaand Murali Vijay. It was reported in 2013 that Kohli's brand endorsements were worth over ₹100 crore. His bat deal with MRF is said to be the costliest deal in Indian cricket history.] In 2017, he signed an eight-year endorsement deal with Puma worth about ₹110 crore, becoming the first Indian sportsperson to sign a ₹100 crore deal with a brand.
