Has India ever won in Australia?
India win series 2-1 after fourth Test with Australia ends in a draw
- India have secured a 2-1 series win against Australia after the fourth Test in Ahmedabad ended in a draw with the hosts retaining the Border-Gavaskar trophy for the fourth successive time.
- After the first three Tests ended in less than three days on raging turners, the series finale was played on a lifeless pitch as just 22 wickets fell across 15 sessions.
- Starting day five on Monday still trailing India by 91 runs, Australia were comfortably steered to safety by Travis Head (90) and Marnus Labuschange (63 not out) as the match was called off early with neither team capable of securing a victory.
- The teams shook hands just an over after Indian No 3 Cheteshwar Pujara bowled the second over of his 102-Test career.
- Australia declared on 175-2 with Labuschange and Steve Smith (10 not out) at the crease after making 480 in their first innings when Usman Khawaja (180) and Cameron Green (114) scored memorable centuries.
- But India batted even better, piling on 571 as Virat Kohli (186) broke through for his first century in more than three years and young opener Shubman Gill scored an excellent 128.
- Australia’s regular No 11 Matt Kuhnemann was the only wicket to fall in the first session on Monday after the spinner was sent in as a nightwatchman on Sunday with Head in place of Khawaja.
- The in-form opener is struggling with an unspecified leg injury after hurting himself in the field on Sunday and looked sore trying to run in the nets before play on day five.
- Khawaja was only a chance to bat if Australia found themselves in serious trouble trying to save the match.

Why did India lose to Australia?
From Bowling First To Batting Failures: Five Reasons Why India Lost WTC Final vs Australia Another ICC tournament Final, another disappointing result for Team India, the heartbreak continues for cricket fans. It’s been 10 years since India last won an ICC Trophy and the wait continues as they were thrashed by Australia in the WTC Final at The Oval.
- Chasing a mammoth 445 for victory, India were bowled out for just 234 in the final innings thanks to superb bowling performances from Nathan Lyon, Scott Boland, Pat Cummins and Mitchell Starc.
- Australia outplayed India in all three departments over 5 days but we have highlighted 5 top reasons why Rohit Sharma’s team just couldn’t cope with Pat Cummins’s side in the WTC Final.
- Decision to bowl first
The Oval pitch was light green in colour before the start of the match and conditions were overcast at the toss which influenced Rohit Sharma’s decision to bowl first. India made a good start also with the ball, picking Australia’s top-three in the first hour. But that was it.
- India thought short-term at the time and reaped rewards for a little while before Australia took control of the proceedings as the sun came out and the pitched eased out for the batters.
- Playing and extra seamer in place of R Ashwin
- India made the bold decision to leave out Ravichandran Ashwin – the highest wicket taker of the team in this year’s WTC – and instead chose to play an extra seamer in Umesh Yadav, who leaked a lot of runs in the first innings.
- Ashwin would have been Rohit’s main weapon in the second half of the Test as the pitched offered turn from Day 3 onwards.
- Batting failures in both innings
The biggest reason behind India’s defeat in the WTC Final has to be the team’s batting failures in both innings. India couldn’t even manage to reach 300 in either innings in the match on a pitch where the likes of Travis Head & Steve Smith flourished.
- The star studded lineup of Rohit, Pujara, Gill and Kohli couldn’t even score a single fifty in either innings.
- Ajinkya Rahane’s return to form and his 89 in the first innings was the only positive.
- Bowlers looked tired and flat in first innings India fought back hard in the second innings with the ball but the bowlers were erratic in the first innings, allowing Australia to pile on 469 on the first two days.
Siraj, Shami, Shardul, Umesh and Jadeja were just not able to stop the likes of Head, Smith, Alex Carey and Marnus Labuschagne as they made India toil hard on the field. Absence of Jasprit Bumrah The injured Jasprit Bumrah was ruled out of the WTC Final earlier this year due to his back injury which has plagued him since September last year.
How many hours is a test match?
HOW LONG DOES A TEST MATCH actually LAST? – Annoyingly for those of you that like a hard stop to your sporting occasions, when answering the question of how long a Test Match lasts, the best answer we can offer is “it depends”! Tactics, weather, field conditions, geographical location, form of players and umpiring decisions all play a role and until spikes tread turf, the final length of any Test Match is unknown.
In Test cricket, the play usually lasts for about 7 hours and 30 minutes each day and the matches are played over 5 days, with a minimum of 90 overs bowled in each day. Every match consists of four innings with both teams batting twice, but the match may end without all four innings being played if a team is unable to bowl the opposition all out, or the duration of the match ends, due to weather interruptions.
Play may be extended for an additional half an hour on a particular day if the minimum numbers of overs are not bowled or if there is a possibility of a result on the final day’s play. Each day is split into three sessions of game with tea or lunch break between the sessions.
Session 1 – 2 hours of play Lunch – 40 minutes Session 2 – 2 hours of play Tea – 20 minutes Session 3 – 2.5 hours of play
Test Cricket is mostly played in the daytime. In the Indian sub-continent, matches are usually played between 9 AM to 5 PM whereas in England, Australia, and New Zealand the play takes place between 11 AM to 7 PM. Day-night Test Matches have however been a recent addition and are mostly played as one-off matches. These day-night test matches start around 2 PM and last until 10 PM in the evening.
