Head to Head

Australia has dominated India across formats which is evident from their success in Tests, ODIs and T20Is. Out of the nine Tests that the two sides have played, Australia have won four and four matches have ended in a draw. India will look to open their account with a win in the longest format during the pink ball Test that will be played from September 30 to October 3.

In the ODIs, Australian eves have won 37 out of the 46 games, while the Women in Blue have managed to win just nine. The shortest format too sees a similar trend with Australia leading the head-to-head stats with 14 games to 6.

 

Format Played India won Australia won Draw  Last Played
Tests 9 4 5 (last played in 2006)
ODIs 46 9 37 (last played in 2018)
T20Is 20 6 14 (last played in 2020)

 

Performance in the last 5 matches

India’s performance in the last five ODIs has been dismal. Mithali Raj and co. have won just one out of their last five matches. Their T20I performance is a tad better as Harmanpreet Kaur has led the side to two wins in five outings.

Australia, on the other hand, has had a wonderful run in the ODIs having won five out of their five games. Their T20I performance has been ordinary as they have had a 1:1 win-loss ratio.
