    India is No.1 in World test cricket!

    With this stupendous win of 2-0 over Sri Lanka, India have moved upto No.1 in test rankings. I think it is well deserved and congratulations to the entire team and contingent in attaining this landmark for the first time since rankings came to place. Dhoni and Kirsten have definitely hit off as a blockbuster pair and it is suprising to note that Dhoni is yet to lose a test as captain. They have played good positive aggressive cricket in the last few years. Tendulkar expressed that he had been waiting for such a moment in his career and this is a great news for the nation as well. For people who have been clamouring India has been concentrating only on T20s and ODIs for money this is possibly the best answer.

    Well done to India, just a pity they only play 3 Tests in the next two years (or something like that!)
    You know it makes sense.

    Worst test team ever to be Number one in the rankings tbh.

    Thats a real shame and concern. We wont seeing a lot of Sehwag, Dravid, Tendulkar...
    This is why I hate greedy BCCI!
    "This is a clash of strategy. And of methods, culture and politics. This is a new-era rivalry. Not as ancient as the Ashes, or as passionate as India-Pakistan. Two countries that are so different, yet share rampant egotism, high self-opinion and a belief that being born in their country is superior to other births. This brings together a belligerent bunch of brats, bullies and braggers."- Jarrod Kimber

    I'd argue they are better than the team they just took over. Plus they've never lost a test under Mahendra Singh Dhoni. Can't be that bad.

    Blame the ICC for the stupid scheduling (FTP). BCCI has nothing to do with this.

    Yes Jono, in fact India have won 7 out of 10 tests under Dhoni, and that includes perhaps only New Zealand as a weak test opposition still at their home.

    I think NZ should be No. 1

    Who agrees?
