Quality of International Cricket – Voxs Pop

The famous quote from the noted English footballer and coach, Sir Robert William Robson, “Home advantage gives you an advantage” is falling true for cricket as well. In the recently concluded One Day International (ODI) series, India won five consecutive matches against England and has made a series sweep. Ofcourse, that’s why they are the world champions. But last month only, when India was touring England, the hosts achieved the same feat by winning all 5 ODIs and 3 tests without a single defeat in the tour. A complete whitewash! In the gist, both the world-class teams marked an unbelievably amazing run at their home grounds but failed to deliver even once when playing away on an International tour.

This strange story of home country winning is now mocking the cricket players all around the world. When asked by people on the streets, they had varied opinions on the rather amusing phenomenon. Have a look at them and see if have a similar one.
