Boxing Day Test has been held for years and there are several numbers of teams that have played with Australia over time. Know the details.
A Test game played on Boxing Day is known as the Boxing Day Test. At the renowned Melbourne Cricket Ground, it is typically played by Australia against the visiting team. The Boxing Day Test is not only played by Australia, though.
Based on club records as of December 26, League Two Oxford United and Championship team Brighton are a surprise second and third, respectively. In the festive match, both teams have a 50% winning percentage.
In the study, which only included clubs that had played more than 20 Boxing Day matches, Liverpool was the only other Premier League team to place among the top 10. With 86 games under their belt, the Reds have a win percentage of 45.4%.
Wycombe Wanderers, who have participated in 20 Boxing Day games, have the worst record on December 26 with only four victories.
The highest-scoring Boxing Day game was a 13-4 Tranmere Rovers victory over Oldham Athletic at Prenton Park in 1935. Oldham has indeed allowed the most goals on Boxing Day—155—than any other team.
