This period will determine the best sides in the world and where they stand.
The icc rankings may say aussies at the top and india down on 5-6 or south africa down at 5 but they dont tell the full story and this period will see some big series and tours.
I think the top 3 spot in tests will be fought by australia, pakistan and england with pakistans pace attack being crucial to their challenge.
I think pakistan will edge out the other 2 and be the best side in this period.(well least till their bowlers get injured anyway)
Some will say i only chose pakistan cos i am biased but i truly think with all the changes being made like captaincy, new talent and everything and every effort being made by our academy to help the fast bowlers pakistan can really step it up now and surely will.
much also depends on shoaib but he has recently been saying how he wants to get fit and everything and i think this time he is here to stay
