Australia, as one of the best cricketing nations in the world, have had some memorable victories over the years.
Test cricket has been the pinnacle of the sport for as long as it has existed, and while Australia have always been near the top, they haven’t always been the best.
That has created some classic underdog moments over the years, as well as some miraculous series victories which simply weren’t expected.
Playing overseas against other top countries is always seen as a difficult challenge at the best of the times, while playing in the sub-continent sees Australia lose far more than they win.
But that doesn’t mean they haven’t ever picked up wins in that part of the world.
Let’s count down Australia’s top five Test series victories of all-time.
5. 1998 tour of Pakistan
Australia hadn’t won a single Test in Pakistan since 1959 heading into this series, losing six and drawing another seven Tests against the sub-continent nations in tours over an almost 40-year period.
In response, Michael Slater and Steve Waugh both hit centuries as Australia piled on 513 from over 170 overs, before knocking over the hosts for just 145 to claim a famous victory by an innings and 99 runs.
There would be no results in the second and third Test of the series, with Australia piling on 599 in the second Test on the back of Mark Taylor’s 334 not out, before the final test saw Pakistan run out of time, winding up on 5 for 262 chasing 419.
