    If that was so then there wouldn't be Indians up at number 1 so frequently.

    The match result emphasis isn't that great.
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.

    It surprised me, but then again the actual page doesn't have a date on it!

    The Wisden 100 was done with a computer algorithm, too.

    Sorry, I got a bit confused there I think.
    I was referring to the Wisden 100, not the PwC Top 10 ratings.

    Again, that's probably something to do with that list being published before the innings took place!
