    Dravid goes to number 1 in test ratings

    After his century in each innings and a ratings update Dravid has reaching his highest rating to date in his career and taken number 1 from Jaques Kallis. Interestingly enough, he's also within 8 points of the big 900 mark, which only three batsman currently playing (Hayden, Ponting and Lara) have ever reached. Four current bowlers have also reached the 900 mark - McGrath, Pollock, Murali and Warne. Anil Kumble has also jumped up a spot in the bowling rankings after his match winning effort.

    Test Batting
    Rahul Dravid - 892
    Jaques Kallis - 886
    Ricky Ponting - 849
    Brian Lara - 842
    Damien Martyn - 813

    Test Bowling
    Glenn McGrath - 872
    Muttiah Muralitharan - 851 (still!)
    Shaun Pollock - 837
    Anil Kumble - 818
    Shoaib Akhtar - 794

    Yep, just noticed that. Not too much of a surprise considering his immense form as of late. An absolute champion.

    Kindly check the ICC Test Ranking Page too, they have the Possible Series Outcome and who gets what points, they messed it up.

    Apparently, to this attached pic
    India can still only win 1-0
    And Draw can still be 0-0

    He deserves this ranking. He is undoubtedly the best batsman in the world at this present time, and he is one of the greatest Indian batsmen of all time.

    True.


    And it is good that he is batting normally now, unlike being extremely defensive as he was against Australia.

    Chris Martin is currently ranked 30th in the bowling for tests, Vettori's is 15th, that is amazing standing with Martin, he hasnt done a whole lot in the current series.

    no surprise really, been the best batsman in the world for quite a while now, and by quite a distance too.
    Tendulkar = the most overated player EVER!!
    Beckham = the most overated footballer EVER!!
    Vassell = the biggest disgrace since rikki clarke!!

    Well most of them have been pretty flat tracks... and the bowling has been little short of execrable (bar Kaneria, who he seems to have played with great accomplishment).
    Not to mention, as I did, the fact that the 270 wasn't really worth that much...
