Having lost the 1st match of the Tri-series between India, Australia and England, India would be next up against England and both teams would like to win this match and open their points table.

With almost 25 days to go for the World Cup, that is also to be held in Australia and New Zealand, we will take a look at Team India’s ODI record in Australia against all teams.

India has so far played 79 ODI matches in Australia and their record isn’t very convincing for a fan to back the team in the World Cup.

Before we discuss further let us take a look at the stat –

Stat updated till 19th January, 2015

Off the 79 played India have managed to win 31 and have faced defeat in 43 matches. Not a record to be proud but not very disappointing as well. Apart from Australia, India has managed to play well against the other opposition in the Australian conditions.

While India has played 41 matches against Australia, they have won only 10 of those. Against other oppositions such as New Zealand, India have played 11 and won 6. Against our all-time favorite opposition, Pakistan as well India has an upper hand with 4 wins in 7 matches.

India would face England in the Tri series at least twice before the World Cup begins and they are currently tied at one all in 2 matches. Tomorrows (20th January, 2015) match between the two would be a good opportunity for either of the teams to have an upper hand against each other.

Against South Africa, India has played just one match and has lost the same.

Zimbabwe is one team against whom India has a 100% record in Australia as they beat the Zimbabwean team in all the 4 matches they played.
