Along with the England cricket team, the Australian team is the joint oldest team in Test cricket history. It featured in the first-ever Test match in 1877. The Aussies also have the distinction of participating in the first-ever one-day international (ODI) against England in 1970/71 and the inaugural T20I against New Zealand in 2004/05.

The Australian team is part of several major rivalries in cricket, the biggest of them, of course, being The Ashes with England. The Border-Gavaskar Trophy rivalry with India has grown in stature over the years. Australia also take on New Zealand in the Trans-Tasman Trophy and West Indies in the Frank Worrell Trophy.

Sir Don Bradman, Richie Benaud, Ricky Ponting, Shane Warne, Glenn McGrath, Steve Waugh, Allan Border, Brett Lee, Denis Lillee, Mitchell Johnson and Michael Clarke, among others, are some of the greatest cricketers to have represented Australia. They dominated world cricket in the 2000s and continue to remain a strong force in international cricket even now.

The Kangaroos have a tremendous record in one-dayers, having won more than 60 percent of the matches they have played. Incredibly, Australia were undefeated in 34 consecutive ODI World Cup matches, a streak that began during the 1999 World Cup and ended when Pakistan defeated them in a 2011 World Cup group stage game by four wickets.

Only the second team to win an ODI World Cup at home after India, they also won the Champions Trophy in consecutive tournaments – 2006 and 2009; the only team to do so. They captured their maiden T20 World Cup title in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) in 2021.

As per the latest ICC Men’s cricket rankings, the Australian cricket team is ranked first in Tests, third in ODIs and sixth in T20Is.
