India Vs Australia – A Rivalry way beyond Cricket

The game of cricket is at its level best when two quality teams India and Australia face off regardless of venue and format. The excitement level is always high amongst players and fans whenever these two teams play.

There is competitive cricket, exchange of words and much more whenever these two teams meet.

India and Australia have a long history of playing cricket against each other. Overall, Australia has had more success in their cricket matches against India, but India has also had its share of victories.

India’s first bilateral series was way back in 1947/48 which was won by Australia. Initially, Indian team wasn’t winning many matches but later on they had developed as a unit after winning world-cups.

India vs Australia Test Cricket

Australia have got the better of India in test cricket with 42 wins out the 98 matches they have played, whereas India won on 28 occasions. The remaining 27 games have ended in a draw with one tie.

India has been dominant at home in the test format. They have 8 series wins in 14 series which were played in India. Since 2008 they have lost just one game against Australia in home soil.

It was against Australia, India won a test even after getting enforced a follow-on courtesy the partnership between VVS Laxman (281 runs)  and Rahul Dravid (180 runs). Harbhajan Singh took 6 wickets in the second innings ensuring a win by 171 runs.

India hasn’t had much success touring Australia. They have played a total of 13 series away from home in Australia and managed to win just one series which eventually came last year (2019) under the captaincy of Virat Kohli. Kohli and his men created history by finishing the series 2-1 and becoming the first Asian team to win a series in Australia. Cheteshwar Pujara and Indian pace-bowlers were the architects for the series win against Aussies.

India vs Australia ODI Cricket

In total 140 played so far Australia have won 78 matches whereas India managed to win 52 (10 matches results didn’t come out). In ICC World cups too Australia’s record is far better than India.

Australia will remember the memorable victory against India in 2015’s ICC Cricket World Cup. Australia put a mammoth 328 runs on board courtesy Steve Smith’s more than a ball century well supported by Arron Finch’s 91 runs.

In return to the target Indian openers were off to a decent start with 56 runs in the first 10 overs without losing any wickets. The dismissal of well set Shikhar Dhawan led to the vice-captain Virat Kohli in. The wicket of the star batsman Virat Kohli was the turning point in that match. They were a couple good starts from Rahane, Dhoni and Sharma but none of them stayed till the end. Eventually the entire team was all-out for 233 hence Australia won by 95 runs and ended up winning the trophy too.

India vs Australia T20 Cricket

India has a better record in T20I’s than other formats. They have won 11 out of 20 matches played so far.

India and Virat Kohli won’t forget that group stage match of World T20 2016 at Mohali. Australia put up a modest score of 161 runs on board. In return the openers got out early and then Virat Kohli came out to bat. He was at his peak throughout the year. The run chase was well planned with calculative risks. Virat took the team to victory with 5 balls left and scoring 86* of 51 balls.

India-Australia Relations (friends or foe)

IND AUS Upcoming Series

Whenever we talk about rivalry in cricket we talk about Indo-Pak rivalry or the Ashes (ENG vs AUS) but India-Australia rivalry is unique in its own way. There has been controversies between the Indians and Aussies whenever they face-off in a world-cup or bilateral series and the intensity level is always high.

The Episode of Monkey Gate

The incident took place during the Sydney Test in 2008, in which Harbhajan was accused of calling Symonds a ‘monkey’. Things became very worse when Australia wanted to boycott that series. Ponting and his men were very grilled during that tour after the episode of monkey gate. A decade after the incident, Symonds stated that he had closed the case three years later.

Both of them ended the controversy by playing for Mumbai in the Indian Premier League. Harbhajan, who had denied such remarks at the time, was imposed a three-match suspension. India however opposed it, following which the ban was lifted. At that time the cricketing relationship between India and Australia reached its worst phase.

DRS is Decision Review System not Dressing Room Review

It all happened in the Australia tour of India 2017,the second test when Steve Smith and his men were given a target of 188. Umesh Yadav bowled a full length hitting the pads of Steve Smith and looked plump.

Umpire Nigel Llong straight away gave it out. Steve Smith walked down towards non-striker Peter Handscomb and then looked at the dressing room for assistance to ensure whether he had to take a referral or not.

According to ICC Code of Conduct – a batsman can consult only the non-striker to go for referral and not any other external sources. Virat Kohli caught Smith breaking the code of conduct and immediately informed the umpire. The umpire asked the batsman to leave.

Later Smith admitted that he asked the dressing room for help which was wrong.

Virat couldn’t play the series decider due to his shoulder injury. But India convincingly won the series 2-1 under the captaincy of stand-in skipper Ajinkya Rahane thus retaining the Border-Gavaskar trophy.

There were many controversies created by Aussies in that tour. Steve Smith on behalf of his team apologized to the team India and fans for their behaviour in that test series. Virat Kohli said that although the series was won they had lost the friendship amongst Aussies.

Virat Kohli showing the Spirit of game

During the ICC world-cup 2019, in a league stage match between India and Australia, Steve Smith had returned from a ban of sand-paper gate after a period of 12 months. When Steve Smith came out to bat the Indian fans were booing at him.

Virat immediately went on to the boundary field and made a gesture to the fans to clap for him instead of booing him. This gesture was appreciated by both Smith and fans of cricket which clearly indicated that the relations of India-Australia was not that intense as we thought.

Virat Kohli was awarded the ICC Spirit of game in 2020 for his positive gesture.

Australia play the aggressive style of cricket with pure sledging and dominance. In early 2000’s Australia under the captaincy of Steve Waugh and Ricky Ponting were invincible for a decade’s time.

When Virat was given the captaincy in 2014, he and his team also adopted the same aggressive style of play. That’s the reason why India has become the number one team in test format for a while now.
