Lord's is the spiritual home of cricket and no other visiting team had such a brilliant record at the ground other than the Australians, who dominated Test matches at the venue for decades. During the 1934 Ashes in England, Australia lost the 2nd Test of the series at Lord's by an innings and 38 runs en route to their eventual 2-1 triumph in the series.
However, since that defeat, Australia dominated the Test matches that it played at the venue and over the course of the next 75 years, they played 18 Test matches at Lord's and won 9 of them to set up a record that will probably never be matched by any other visiting team.
Their proud record was eventually broken in 2009 when a Freddie Flintoff inspired England beat them by 115 runs. After that, Australia lost another Test at Lord's when they were beaten by 347 runs during their 2013 tour but in 2015, they beat the hosts by 405 runs to perhaps restart a new cycle of success at the home of cricket.
