    Probably Australia when they prepare those fast, bouncy pitches. Probably India when they play at Chennai and Eden Gardens and get 100,000 odd people behind them and when they prepare spinning tracks perfect for Anil Kumble/Harbhajan Singh.

    But Australia for me.

    Well Australia did have a 35 year drought in India that they just broke. Not many teams beat us at home.....

    australia don't win just because of any home advantage....they win because they are simply the best...home and away.....i would say india or sri lanka.....in fact i would say india edges out sri lanka in this regard...

    India

    Reason: Just look at the home (57 Win / 94 Draws / 45 Lost) v away (21 Win / 80 Draws / 81 Lost) % wins, home advantage must be doing something for them.

    I'd say India because they are generally less than mediocre outside of India. The Indian team is suited to Indian conditions, whereas I think Sri Lanka's team offers a little bit more (than their Indian counterparts) in varied conditions.
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? 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."

    Definitely not Pakistan. They win more away than at home.

    The West Indies have done it a number of times, England surely have done it before, South Africa have I think in 1992/93, but in the recent past Australia have been close to perfect.
