India in Sri Lanka
Sri Lanka has been the land fancy to play Tests as their W/L ratio here is 1.14. In a total of 24 head-to-head clashes on Lankan soil, India has tested victory in 9 matches, including three of the just-concluded series (2017) that saw the hosts getting completely whitewashed for the first time. Conditions in the country have been almost similar to that. Lanka’s slow-paced, turning tracks have always kept India competitive here. Nine wins, seven loses and eight draws in 24 Tests together constitutes a good track record for India away from home.
India in West Indies
With a mere of 7 wins in 49 Tests, India in West has had a woeful Test record. The number of wins here have been less than half the number of loses for India. Deadly tracks that offered extra bounce and pace had restricted India from outclassing West Indies in their own den, particularly until 90s. The number of loses, which as of now count 16, does still scare India when it comes to visiting West Indies. Both the teams share 26 draws in head-to-head clashes on Caribbean land. Pathetic, W/L ratio here is 0.437.
India in Bangladesh
Every Bangladeshi tour has been a walk in the park for Team. Bangladesh is the only nation where hasn’t tested a defeat yet. won 6 out of their 8 matches here. And the rest two Tests have resulted in draws.
India in England
England is amongst the countries doesn’t often enjoy playing. On most occasions when the two teams contested each other in England, India returned brutally defeated. Stats also don’t go by India’s favour as they have lost 30 out of their 57 matches here so far. Playing in England has always been challenging for Indian batsmen. With just 6 wins to their credit, India shares a W/L ratio of 0.200 in England.
