India’s Test record at home has historically been good and the figures above justify that assertion. West Indies are the only visiting team who have a better head to head record against India in India. India’s record in home Tests against Australia, England and South Africa are good, though the Proteas have played only 16 Tests in the country and won 31.25 per cent of them. Overall, India have a win percentage of 37.35 in home Tests, a 19.62 loss percentage and a draw percentage of 42.80.


India’s away/overseas Test record

vs Aus 44 5 28 11/0
vs Ban 8 6 0 2/0
vs Eng 62 7 34 21/0
vs NZ 23 5 8 10/0
vs Pak 26 2 7 17/0

vs WI 49 7 16 26/0
vs ZIM 6 3 2 1/0
Overall 262 47 112 103/0

India’s Test record in Australia, England, South Africa, and New Zealand doesn’t make for a good reading at all. They have managed to win only five of their 44 Tests on Australian soil, six of 57 Tests (!) in England, three of the 20 Test matches in South Africa, and five of the 23 Tests in New Zealand. The records against two other countries away from home—Pakistan, West Indies—is bad as well, though India have saved a considerable number of Tests in Pakistan and in the Caribbean.
