Australia v England - Fourth Test: Day 5

England, the nation where cricket first began, have been part of historic matches in the longest format ever since the first official Test match was played against Australia in 1877.

Not long after, in 1882, Australia’s win at The Oval kickstarted one of the oldest sporting rivalries in the form of the Ashes, now an annual affair between the two sides alternating as hosts. 

Over the years, the country has produced one great cricketer after another with generations passing by. Sportskeeda looks back on their Test match records against each of the other Test playing nations so far.

beaten by Bangladesh in a Test for the first time in 2016

Played – 10, Won – 9, Lost – 1, Drawn – 0, Win Percentage – 90.00%

Bangladesh have been in the Test fold since the beginning of the century, but have, unfortunately, played only 10 Test matches against England. The last time the sides met, however, the rising Bangladesh unit showed that they were no pushovers by bowling out England for 164 in a chase of 273 – that, after England were 100 for no loss at one stage.

That first win in Dhaka in October 2016, though, did not prove enough to convince the ECB to schedule a Test in England for the first time since 2010 when the 2018 summer was being drawn up, rather than call Pakistan again after last hosting them only in 2016.

Aside from that, England have registered 9 wins out of 10 against Bangladesh, though one of them, in the first Test of the aforementioned series, was by only 22 runs.
