We all know that the test match is the ultimate form of cricket. However, limited-overs cricket has added excitement to fans for cricket in our fast-moving life because of cricket leagues played around the world. But only true cricket fans understand the excitement of test cricket when two top-notch nations play in extremely tough conditions to survive the session.

And on top of that for a visiting team, it becomes hard to beat the host country in unfavorable conditions. For countries like New Zealand, Australia, England, and South Africa to play in Asian countries is as formidable as the Asian team winning in those countries.

Today we are going to talk about the team which holds the record of the most consecutive test series win at home. And as of now, the modern Indian cricket team under the captaincy of Virat Kohli has broken so many records of test cricket.

Indian team is unbeatable at home since losing the test series at home to England in 2012-2013. Since then Indian team is yet to lose a test series at home which is a commendable achievement for the Indian team since Virat Kohli has taken over the captaincy. India has played 14 test series at home after that series loss against England and they are yet to lose a test series at home.
