India vs. Australia: The Old Rivalry

India have started on yet another tour of Australia. They will play three ODIs, three T20Is, and four Tests starting with the ‘Pink Test’ in Adelaide on 17th December. The next three Tests are: the Boxing Day Test in Melbourne (26-30 Dec), the New Year Test in Sydney (7-11 Jan), and the fourth Test in Brisbane (15-19 Jan). This will be the 26th Test series (excluding the one-off Test match in 1996) in which India and Australia will lock horns since they first played against each other in 1947.

Cricket contests between the two nations have always been of very high intensity. The two teams have met each other in 98 Test matches so far, with Australia winning 42, India 28, and 27 matches ending in a draw. Australia had not beaten India in India in a Test series since 1969–70 until their victory in the 2004–05 series. And it's been all India since then. Conversely, India had never managed to win a Test series in Australia until the 2018–19 series.

The competitiveness of the series played between the two sides is also reflected in the fact that it was India who ended Australia's run of 16 consecutive Test wins twice, in 2000–01 and 2007–08. Matches in India are commonly described with labels like the final frontier or iconic event. The Test series held in India in 2000–01 was labeled the final frontier by Steven Waugh and it lived up to its reputation.

Considered by many as the greatest Test series of modern times, India overpowered the mighty Australians in the final session of the final Test at Chennai. The series also gave the cricket world three champion cricketers in Matthew Hayden, Harbhajan Singh, and VVS Laxman, who were relatively unknown or had been underperforming till then.

This Test rivalry has seen some dramatic moments in history, including the tied Test in Chennai and the iconic one in Kolkata in 2001 where Australia lost after giving India a follow-on.

In terms of series wins, Australia have won 12 of the 25 series while India have won eight. Five series have been drawn. The two teams also played a one-off Test match in 1996 and India were the winner on that occasion.

India have won a Test series in Australia only once (2018-19) and drew three times (1980-81, 1985-86, and 2003-04). Australia have won a Test series in India four times (1956-57, 1959-60, 1969-70, and 2004-05) and drew once (1986-87).


India’s Tour of Australia 2020-21

India is currently touring Australia, from November 2020 to January 2021, to play four Tests, three ODIs, and three T20I matches. The Test series will form part of the inaugural World Test Championship and the ODI series will form part of the inaugural ICC Super League. Sydney and Canberra will host the white-ball matches.

India's captain Virat Kohli will leave the tour after the first Test, having been granted paternity leave. Ajinkya Rahane will lead the team in Kohli's absence.

Squads


The series is named after Australia's Allan Border and India's Sunil Gavaskar, the first two Test cricketers to have scored over 10,000 Test runs in their respective careers. The former captains were both world record holders for the most runs scored in Test cricket.

The first edition was held in 1996, in which India won by seven wickets. The series is mostly a four-Test series, with the exceptions being the first four editions and the 2010 series. Sachin Tendulkar has been the most successful batsman, with 3262 runs in 65 innings. Anil Kumble is the most successful bowler, with 111 wickets in 20 matches at an average of 30.32.

India currently holds the trophy after regaining it from Australia in the 2017 series, which they won 2–1, and then retaining it in 2018-19, which they won by the same margin.
