We all know Windies of the 80's and Aus of late 90's early 00's are arguably two greatest sides of all time. What are the other great sides who managed excellence over a period of time. I am looking for atleast 4 years or 20 tests.These would be some of the great sides in my time.
Away series wins in India and England. Home any Away drawn series with an ATG Westindies side. 100% home record albeit with some umpiring support.
Lost series in Australia.
First side in 15 years to beat Westindies and that too away. Away wins in Pakistan and South Africa their two closest rival in that time period. Home and Away comprehensive Ashes wins.
Away loss to India and Lanka.
Away wins in Westindies and South Africa. Home Ashes win vs an ATG Australian side.
None. A short time period stops them from being rated as an ATG side.
Away wins in England and an away draw series with South Africa their nearest rival. Dominating home record.
Away loss to Mendis and Murali.
So what are the other great test sides over the history? and can we have a top 10 rating for all time great test sides?
