    How would you rank the teams? 07 version

    Does what it says on the tin. I'd be interested to see how everybody thought the sides should be ranked, based on their own personal opinion, or a points system they have devised (do share it). The reason I believe it could be interesting is that there was a lot of debate over whether England are #2 or not...so go on... let's see...

    TESTS

    1-Australia
    2-England
    3-Pakistan
    4-South Africa
    5-India
    6-Sri Lanka
    7-New Zealand
    8-West Indies

    ODIS

    1-Australia
    2-South Africa
    3-Pakistan
    4-West Indies
    5-India
    6-Sri Lanka
    7-New Zealand
    8-England

    Er, that ODi one needs a lot of work. Don't read too much into it, I'll have a think about that. I stand by my Test rankings, though

    I may be too patriotic, but NZ would beat India and West Indies in ODI's I feel. Recently we've seen a drawn series with Sri lanka but I feel we've improve din the CB series from that and would rightly take 4th or 5th spot in the world.

    Tests
    Australia
    England
    Pakistan
    India
    South Africa
    Sri Lanka
    New Zealand
    West Indies
    Bangladesh

    ODIs
    Australia
    South Africa
    Pakistan
    Sri Lanka
    West Indies
    New Zealand
    India
    England
    Bangladesh

    Should be noted with the ODI rankings that 2nd to 7th is more or less impossible to rank. Those teams are incredibly even and you'd be a brave man to pick a result clearly in any of those series. South Africa deserve 2nd fairly clearly, but beyond that it's anyones.

    Pretty self explanatory really.

    In the ODI's, really a toss up between Sri Lanka and NZ for third

    Tests
    1. Australia
    2. England
    3. Pakistan
    4. India/South Africa
    5. Sri Lanka
    6. New Zealand
    7. West Indies


    India wins in India, SA wins in SA. Not sure who to put ahead.

    But an interesting thing to note is that 8/10 times against Australia, India wouldn't get beaten 3-0 in India like SA did in SA. And even though Dhoni made me puke in Mumbai, I don't see us losing at home to England too often either (it could happen, England are better, but I still like our chances at home, with spin vs. them).

    Then again, SA have a lot better chance of winning tests away from home than do India. So it ends up even IMO.

    Fair enough then, I was toying with moving Bangladesh up a spot anyway.

    Well considering in recent times that NZ have beaten Pakistan, South Africa AND India..I find it difficult to see them being way down ranked #7 or #8.
    Not to mention a 4-1 result against the West Indies.

    The problem is that sometimes we capitulate quite badly to Australia and that makes things seem worse than they really are.
