Will it be an unbeaten home season for India?

December 10, 2010 15:01 IST

No one has noticed it, but India have not lost a single match at home in this season.

They blanked Australia 2-0 in the Test series and then won the only One-Day International played in Vizag after two matches of the series were washed out due to rain in Kochi and Goa.

They beat New Zealand 1-0 in the three match Test series and have beaten them in four consecutive matches so far.

Another win in Chennai on Friday in the fifth ODI would see India would equal their best performance in a home season where they did not suffer a single defeat.

The following table lists India's unbeaten home seasons since the inception of international cricket in India.
