The Indian team have had a fantastic 2021 where they have secured Test wins in Australia and now in England. Placed at the second spot behind New Zealand in the ICC Test Rankings, the Indian team has attained new heights this year. But in ODIs, they are placed at number four, and in T20Is, they are second behind England in the ICC Rankings. Notably, India have not won an ICC trophy in limited-overs cricket since 2013, when they beat England to win the Champions Trophy.
