Longest home series winning streaks in Test cricket

Test cricket is reaching new heights right now. The growth of the longest format has been a hit among all the cricketing fans in the world. With the World Test Championship Test cricket has been given great importance. We have witnessed some great series throughout this modern era, where everyone thought that Test cricket is declining. It was a long time ago that this format was all about surviving in the game and now it is a format where the runs are given more importance. This has led to Test matches achieving great results and keep the excitement among the fans.

We all know that Test cricket has been one of the richest formats in the game. What is making it interesting is the long winning streaks of the teams as well. There have been some big winning streaks which consist of some of the top teams in cricket right now. The winning streaks at home do make a big difference to the opponents. It gives the home side enough confidence to assure their dominance over the opponents who are visiting them.

So, here’s a look at the 3 home Test series winning streaks in international cricket so far:

3. West Indies( 1976-1986)- 8

There was a time where the Caribbean giants were the best team in the world. The old stories of the West Indies team created fear among the players of that era. The period between 1976-1986 saw them win 8 consecutive Test series at home. Whether it was the phenomenal batters in Clive Lloyd and Vivian Richards or the dangerous fast bowlers, all played a major role in making them one of the most dangerous teams especially in Test cricket.

2. Australia( 1994-2000 & 2004-2008)-10 


The period between from the mid 90’s to early 2000’s saw the Australian team achieve new heights in the game. Whether it was legendary batters like Ricky Ponting and Matthew Hayden or exceptional pacers in Glenn McGrath and Brett Lee, they all made the Aussies unbeatable. Between 1994 to 2000, they had already beaten the home series winning streak winning 10 consecutive Test series at home. They soon almost bettered themselves achieving the same streak between 2004-2008. These were clearly the years where the Australian team were the biggest giants in international cricket.

1.India( 2013-2024)- 17


 After 9 years the Aussie home streak was finally broken. It was the Indians who have finally broken the record and have extended it right now after winning the series against England. This was the period where India was ruling the Test format, especially at home. With batters like Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma and a balanced bowling attack, there is still no team that has come close to beating them at home in Test matches. The upcoming talents in the set up are also proving to be threatening to the teams visiting the Indian sub-continent. they currently won 17 consecutive Test series at home and it is a record that may remain for a long time.
