    Test series win in Australia............

    I must say I was kind of shocked to learn that only 3 nations have defeated Australia in a test series in Australia in the history of the game!!!!

    For the record only .....

    England


    West Indies


    and

    New Zealand

    have beaten Australia in a test series in Aust.

    Its particularly great for New Zealand - a team that is seemingly underated by everyone yet have achieved something that so few teams have

    But New Zealand have only done it once in their long history of test series against Australia. They deserve to be "underated".

    They deserve to be underated because they are only 1 of 3 teams that have ever achieved this?? Yeah that make perfect sense

    By the way its not really that long a history when you consider that after a series in the 1940s...we never played Australia again til the early to mid 70s.

    But there is no doubt Australia have tradionally been a lot stronger than NZ at cricket in the same way the All Blacks have traditionally be better than Australia at rugby

    sorry...could resist

    And how bad the Aussies were at that time

    India played very well in two series down under - once under Kapil where Australia was outscored most times (I think - not sure) and the last series down under.

    It is indeed toughest to beat Australia in Australia.

    The umpiring down under was pretty poor in the era of pre neutral umpires (if what I hear from past cricket fans is true) which should not be entirely ignored. Also I saw a stat a few years ago of lbws given for and against. Australia had the worst or second worst ratio. But can be because more Australian bowlers got wickets than away bowlers.

    But all this cannot take away the superb record Australia has in home.

    Does Australia have the biggest percentage of home series wins?

    Indeed they did. 1-0.

    The first test was at Peshawar. Heath Streak took 4-93 and Pommie Mbangwa 3-40 in the first innings to bowl out Pakistan for 296. Zimbabwe got 238 in their first innings despite Neil Johnson's 103, but then they bowled Pakistan out again for only 103, Olonga the destroyer with 4-42, Heath got 2-19 and Pommie 3-23. Zimbabwe then had to chase 160-odd, and got there for 3, Murray Goodwin seeing them home with 73*.

    The second test was "fogged out" in Lahore, so Zimbabwe gained their first series victory. This tour is often represented, along with the World Cup 99, as the apogee of Zimbabwean cricket.
