English cricket team in Australia in 1986-87

Both England and Australia begun this series at a low ebb. England had lost 5-0 against the West Indies the previous year, then lost 2-0 and 1-0 to India and New Zealand respectively during the England summer. Australia, during the same period, had badly lost two series against New Zealand (2-1 and 1-0), and drew two series against India. Although Australia escaped with an historic tie against India in September 1986, India always looked a better side, and were very unlucky to draw a match they should have won in Melbourne in December 1985.
