A one day International defeat against Australia on Friday will mean that England equall their record losing run of 10 matches in all forms of cricket.


That is a record sequence matched only twice before in England's cricketing history.

The main hope now is that England will win at least one of the three Twenty20 matches which bring the tour to a close next week. But such is the one-sided nature of Australia's dominance that everyone thinks 13-0 on tour is at least possible.

In 1993, England lost 10 Tests and ODIs before drawing a Test match at Nottingham against Australia. Eight years later at home, they lost 10 before beating the Australians in a Test at Leeds, The Independent reports.

The difference this time is that all the defeats have been against the same opponents, Australia.
