From exceptional to dismal
As West Indies prepare for their Test series in Australia, most observers believe the matches will be hopelessly one-sided. Over the last couple of decades, West Indies have been consistently poor as a Test team and the numbers highlight just how startling the decline has been.
- West Indies have a win-loss record of 1-37 in overseas Tests since December 2003 v the top eight teams
- No West Indies bowler averages under 30 in Tests since December 2003
- In Australia, West Indies have lost ten of their 11 Tests since 2000
