The series of Test cricket games between India and Australia since 1996 is known as the Border-Gavaskar Trophy. It is one of the world’s most anticipated Test cricket series, and it is typically played every other year.
In honour of both men’s contributions to the game and the cultures of cricket in their respective countries, the series was given their names.
Border Gavaskar Trophy History
The Indian cricket team had faced Australia in 50 Test matches between 1947 and 1996. And then the fabled competition was renamed the Border-Gavaskar Trophy in 1996 to celebrate the record-breaking achievements of cricket legends Sunil Gavaskar of India and former Australia captain Allan Border.
BGT is an unofficial acronym created by fans for the Border-Gavaskar Trophy, which is named in honour of two renowned cricketers, Allan Border and Sunil Gavaskar.
In 1996–1997, the First Border-Gavaskar trophy match was played between the two nations. In that series, one Test was played in Delhi under Sachin Tendulkar. Since then, 15 Test series—at home and abroad—have been played between the two teams. India won two away series and won eight times. While Australia only won one away series in 2004 they still managed to win 6.
