    The South Africans haven't beaten the Aussies in a series since their re-inclusion. They drew that series in '92/93.

    Otherwise from that, you're quite right, and growing up in the 70's and 80's, I saw us beaten quite a bit at home. NZ did us as well.

    Oh, and in reply to the original post, on the stats posted by Rich, you'd have to say India.

    I'm thinking New Zealand...It's clsoe between India and NZ.

    Yeah I'd say it's NZ. Because it's home advantage... I don't care how well they've done anywhere else. NZ's wickets helps all their part-time bowlers and all-rounders. Virtually no team from the subcontient has a chance most of the time..

    Well then your phrasing is horrible!

I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    Just to clear it up, Australia haven't been beaten at home since the West Indies beat them 2-1 in 1992/93 thanks to one of the greatest ever spells of bowling from Curtley Ambrose at the WACA in the decider, where he took all the wickers in his 7-25 from about 10 overs.

    As an interesting aside, Australia also haven't lost away since then either, aside from in the subcontinent. Their total record in test series since that West Indies loss is 29 won, 6 drawn and 5 lost. Three of the five losses came to India in 1996, 1998 and 2001, and one each to Pakistan in 1994 and Sri Lanka in 1999.

    I voted for Australia, but after thinking about this record a bit more I don't think home advantage has much to do with it. Evidently Australia have simply been dominant everywhere except the subcontinent, which indicates that the subcontinent teams benefit greatly playing at home against the Australians, and India's record backs this up further, so if I could I would change my vote.
