Border-Gavaskar Trophy History, Stats, Schedule 2023

The Border-Gavaskar Trophy resumes as Australia visits India for 4 Tests from Feb 9 to Mar 9. This marks Australia’s first tour of India since India won the 4-match series 2-1 in 2017.

Since then, India has won twice in Australia, with the most recent series victory being memorable due to Rishabh Pant’s heroics in chasing over 300 runs at The Gabba.

The series is expected to be highly competitive as both teams are in good form and could meet again in the World Test Championship final at The Oval, London in June.

Australia has won 10 of their last 15 Tests, losing just once, while India has won 8 of 14.

The Amazing History Of Border-Gavaskar Trophy

The Border-Gavaskar Trophy is a Test cricket series between India and Australia organized by the International Cricket Council’s future tours. 

As of January 2021, India holds the trophy after defeating Australia 2-1 in the 2020-21 series, with one match drawn. In the event of a drawn series, the team holding the trophy retains it. 

The trophy is named after former captains Allan Border of Australia and Sunil Gavaskar of India. Since the competition’s inception in 1996, Sachin Tendulkar of India holds the record for the most runs scored (3262) in 65 innings, while Indian bowler Anil Kumble is the most successful with 111 wickets in 20 matches at an average of 30.32.

Before the Border–Gavaskar Trophy, India and Australia had played each other 50 times in Tests in a 49-year period from 1947 to 1996. 

Australia was the first country India toured soon after their Independence. 

However, during the period, the tours between both the countries were not fixed like The Ashes, with both countries often touring each other after more than 10–15 years.

The Border-Gavaskar Trophy represents intense cricketing contests between India and Australia. The significance of the series is heightened by Australia’s quest to beat India in a Test match series on Indian soil, which they had not accomplished since 1969-70 until their victory in the 2004-05 series. India has earned a reputation for being tough to beat at home, having lost only two Test series since 1986-87. 

On the other hand, India had never won a Test series in Australia until the 2018-19 series, which was followed by their winning streak in the 2020-21 series, thereby retaining the trophy for two consecutive editions away from home. 

The series between the two nations is highly competitive, as evidenced by India’s ending of Australia’s 16 consecutive Test wins in both 2000-01 and 2007-08. 

Matches in India are often referred to as the “final frontier” or an “iconic event.” The Test series in India in 2000-01, dubbed the “final frontier” by Steve Waugh, lived up to its name and resulted in India overpowering Australia in the final session of the last Test in Chennai, marking one of the closest results in decades. 

The series also saw the emergence of three star cricketers in Hayden, Harbhajan, and Laxman, who rose to prominence during the series and their rivalries with Australian bowlers and Hayden, respectively, are considered among the most thrilling player matchups in a Test series of cricket. 

The series was played amidst the mourning of the legendary Sir Donald Bradman, who was eagerly anticipating the series and held high expectations for both teams. 

The competitiveness of the series under the trophy is reflected in the approximate equal number of Test wins for each side.
