Australian Cricket

Alongside England, the Australian Cricket team is the equal oldest Cricketing nation in the world, having its Test status granted in 1877. Since their inception, Australia have dominated in most forms of international competition, winning 46.66 percent of its Test matches. Australia have also won four One Day Cricket World Cups, a three in eight years between 1999 and 2007. The Twenty20 World Cup is the only international competition that has eluded Australia. The Australian Cricket team’s most eagerly anticipated series is ‘The Ashes’ against England – Cricket’s most illustrious Test series.

2014 was a dominant year for Australia’s national side. In the Test arena the side reclaimed the Ashes, defeated a dominant South African side in South Africa, and also swept Pakistan away from home. As a result the side’s Test ranking jumped to second in the world.

The side also claimed the number one One Day International ranking, and are currently ranked fourth in T20 Internationals.
