    Can't remember at the top of my head.....
    It was supposed to be a 3 test series, but due to the stupid Asian Test Championship they made the last test in calcutta as ATC test which Pakistan won. That is the reason Pakistanis consider the 1998-1999 series as a series victory. Officially it isn't but, I guess it can be regarded as a test series win.

    Virtually no team from the subcontient has a chance most of the time..
    Well, this is certainly not true. Pakistan test record in NZ is pretty good.

    I would say there is 3 teams that use home advantage way more than others: India, Sri Lanka and New Zealand.

    But it usually is just the natural conditions in that particular country.....isn't it?

    I think the NZ theory is somewhat skewed by 1 series.
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    i think that new zealand simply because all their players seem so suited to the pitches that they produce. they're players are better suited to their home conditions than any other country to their own conditions. this does not reflect in their results, however, because they do not have all that much class which means that they grind out victories instead of blast teams out like india or sri lanka may do at home

    which makes me wonder when was the last time SL won a game outside the sub continent(and zim).....

    Been through this before - a full side wouldn't have drawn.

    So you can say for certain that Warne and McGrath would have made the difference can you? Utter tripe.

    I say Australia missed McGrath and India missed Warne so it evens itself out really. But no one can say for sure.

    Yeah, you're probably right... but its completely irrelevant from what was said. That team was still representing Australia, and thus India came 'close' to defeating Australia at home.

    You can't just pick and choose when and when not it's the 'real Australia'.
