Who ruled Japan the last time Australia lost in Brisbane? Whose record has Tim Paine matched? Sky Sports statistician Benedict Bermange reveals all...
When Australia last lost at Brisbane in 1988:
- Hirohito was still the Emperor of Japan
- Ronald Reagan was the President of the United States
- The world's population was 5.2 billion (it is now 7.6 billion)
Australia are unbeaten in their last 28 Tests at the Gabba. That is the second-longest home unbeaten streak by any country at any venue in Test history:

Mark Stoneman and James Vince provided England's first hundred partnership for the second wicket since Alastair Cook and Joe Root did so against Pakistan at Manchester in 2016 - in 31 innings since then, England had averaged just 25.20 for the second wicket.
Tim Paine equalled the record for the most Tests missed between appearances for Australia:
78 - Brad Hogg 1996-2003
78 - Tim Paine 2010-2017
71 - Bobby Simpson 1968-1977
68 - Damien Martyn 1994-2000
When he reached nine, Root became the 43rd England batsman to score 1,000 Test runs against Australia.
