Every time when India faces Australia most of the time India loses the match. Also on wednesday, India lose to Australia by 0-4 .

In this test match series, Australia win the series by 2-0.

India and Australia have played 10 matches since the 2016 Azlan Shah Cup final. India have won 1, drawn 3 (although they went on to lose two in shootouts) and lost six of them. However, most of the defeats have been very close, barely a one-goal margin.
