    Rank The Teams (In Terms of Batting)

    Due to all the talk in the India in South Africa thread... I want to come to a conclusion of what CW members here think about each team's batting strength and what they would rank them compared to other teams.

    I would like you to rank the top 8 teams in terms of batting strength in both forms of the game COMBINED. My opinion on this is...

    1) Australia (Big Surprise)
    2) India
    3) WI
    4) South Africa
    5) England
    6) Sri Lanka
    7) Pakistan
    8) New Zealand

    .................................................. .......................Geez, that was harder than I thought it would be!

    Okay then why don't you mind sharing your rankings with us. I'm sure they aren't a "joke"

    And by the way turbinator, it was in the West Indies v Pakistan thread.

    Ranking the West Indies that high is a bit farcical, sure they have a far superior batting lineup on paper with Gayle, Sarwan, Chanerpaul and Lara but it's not very often they fire, especially since we are putting Test's and ODI's together. Each to his own I guess.

    The entire concept of this thread is daft. You can't "combine" rankings across the two forms of the game, when sides like England and the West Indies are very good in one form and hopeless in another.

    And the idea that India, South Africa and Pakistan are better across all-time than England is insane. England were the best team in the world for long periods, even as recently as the 50s and 60s. None of those three teams have ever been the best in the world for any sort of extended period.

    India have no pace bowling. Ranking them ahead of SA and Pakistan in an all time team is ludicrous IMO.

    My ranking of the batting line-ups is: 1, Australia 2. India 3.Sri Lanka 4. South Africa 5.Pakistan 6. England(we're crap at ODI batting and don't score Test 200s) 7. West Indies(on talent should be higher but underachieve in Tests too often) 8. New Zealand.
    Ian Botham, Freddie Flintoff, Kevin Pietersen, Brian Laudrup, Gazza and Daniela Hantuchova....a fan of you all FOREVER!!!
    Can't wait to see Australia field a crap leg-spinner like Hollland or Hohns again.....
    Congratulations to Daniela Hantuchova on her 3rd career title....
    Bob Woolmer 1948-2007..farewell to the best coach England never had...
    Arise Sir Beefy....
