Venues where defeating a team is next to impossible


  • We will take a look a list of 10 venues where the home team has been dominated. It wouldn’t be wrong if we can call these venues a fortress for the home team. While we take a look at this stat, there is a great opportunity for the Indian team to break the 26 year old record. According to the below stat Australia have never lost at Gabba in Brisbane. Australia has played 25 Test matches so far on this ground and is yet to face a defeat.

    However the 26th might as well turn out to be the one if India can pose a good lead on Day 4 of the ongoing match and wrap the Australian line up well in time. Will it be possible? Only time will tell, for now let us take a look at venues that have been a favourable for the home team:
