India vs Australia Test Series 2023: Australia’s cricket team will come to India after 5 years to play Test series next month. During this, the Kangaroo team will play a series of four Test matches on Indian soil. The test series between the two countries will start from 9 February. The first match of the series will be played in Nagpur. The Australian team has been yearning to win the Test series for a long time on the tour of India. This time the dream of the Kangaroo team will be to defeat India at its home. Many former Australian cricketers have also been claiming Australia’s victory in India for a long time. But the truth is that Australia has been able to win the Test series only once in India for more than five decades. Moreover, in the last 14 years, the Kangaroo team has won a Test in India.
Australia won once in 52 years
Australia played Test series in India for the first time in 1956-57. In which he defeated India 2-0. For 13 years from the beginning, Australia dominated the Indian soil. During this, the Kangaroos won three Test series out of four held in India and one was a draw. After losing to Australia in the year 1970, India learned a lesson. Then the dice of Team India turned. Once again in 1979-80, the Australian team came on a tour of India. In the meantime, India defeated them 2-0 in the Test series. The 1986-87 series was a draw. After that, from 1996 to 2001, India defeated Australia every time on its home soil. At the same time, in the year 2004-05, Australia captured the Test series. But after this, India defeated Australia in their home four consecutive times in the Test series of 2008-09, 2010-11, 2012-13, and 2016-17. In this way, if seen in the last 52 years, the Kangaroo team was successful in winning the Test series in India only once.
Won only one test in 14 years
If we look at Australia’s last four tours of India, then its performance was quite embarrassing. In the last 14 years, Australia played 14 Test matches on the tour of India. In which the Kangaroo team could win only one match. In the year 2016-17, he won the Pune Test on India Tour. Then Australia defeated India by 333 runs. From 2008-9 to 2016-17, the Australian team has lost four consecutive Test series on Indian soil. This strong record of Team India shows that this time also the path of the Kangaroo team will not be easy on the tour of India. Indian bowlers and batsmen will give a tough test to the guests.
