Will Shikhar Dhawan do what he could not do from Kapil Dev to Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Virat Kohli?

The Indian cricket team has never been able to clean sweep a bilateral ODI series in the West Indies till date. This record has not been added to the names of captains like Kapil Dev, Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Virat Kohli.

The Indian cricket team has never done a clean sweep in an ODI series in the West Indies till date. Prior to this series, the Indian team has played nine ODI series in the West Indies, but has not got a chance to clean sweep even once. Under the leadership of captains like Kapil Dev, Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Virat Kohli, what Team India has not been able to do, will it be able to do under the leadership of Shikhar Dhawan? Rohit Sharma has been rested from the ODI series and Shikhar Dhawan is taking charge of the team in his place. The first two matches have been very close, so creating history for Team India is not going to be very easy.

The Indian team went to the West Indies for the first time in a bilateral ODI series in 1982-83. Kapil Dev was the captain of the team then. The three-match series was then lost by India 1-2. Out of the nine series played between the two teams in West Indies before this, India has won five and West Indies have won four series. West Indies had cleaned India in 1988-89. India could not win a single match in the five-match series then.

At the same time, in the three-match ODI series in 2019, India won the series 2-0, while the result of one match could not be found. Then the captain of Team India was Virat Kohli. India has made an unassailable lead in the series, but now it has to be seen whether Team India will be able to create history by making a clean sweep or not? If this happens, then Shikhar Dhawan will become the first captain of Indian cricket, under whose captaincy Team India has made a clean sweep in the One Day International series on West Indies soil.
