Total Head to Head Test Series Results between India and Australia:
India till date has won a total of nine Test series against Australia, Whereas Australia has a slightly better record against India as Aussies have won total twelve series against Team India.
However this may be termed as a half truth as Indian cricket team has evolved into a much better Test side in the captaincy of MS Dhoni and now Virat Kohli. Therefore if you consider the last ten Border-Gavaskar Trophies, then India has the upper hand. India won five out of last ten Test series against Australia and out of those five, India won the last two series on the trot. This means that Team India is the defending champion.
This time with the absence of Virat Kohli, India’s premier batsman and Test captain it will be a different challenge for the tourists. Virat will only play the first Test as he had to go back to India on paternity leave for his child birth.
