    Best SC Team to show up in England during the last year

    This question has been on my mind and thought I would post it here.

    During the last one year Pakistan, SL, and India have all played a test series in England.

    All three were quit **** (although in India's case it might be premature to say that ).. The current series is still going on.

    I didn't watch the SL series but the scoreline tells that they probably put in a decent show or at least better than Pakistan and India.

    So which team would you rank the bad from the worse?

    And in what order would you rank their performance in England?
    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    Bangladesh had Tamim so it's probably them/him
    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    In English conditions, Pakistan was the best team. Worst batting lineup, sure, but they at least won a game, something Sri Lanka and India are incapable of with their current bowlers. And they actually had a superior bowling attack, arguably superior to England's. Remember, in 4 tests, England's vaunted batting lineup crossed 400 only once despite all the dropped catches.

    In test cricket, great batting can draw tests but not really win you matches. Great bowling can occasionally make up for ordinary batting and win the odd game, as Pakistan showed.

    In terms of punching above their weight, I think it's quite clearly the Banglas. We expected them to roll over and die, and they put up a scrap. We expected a semblance of a contest from the other sides, and (the odd session apart) it's been pitiful.

    Pakistan without a doubt. Won a match and came closer than anyone else to coming away with a drawn series.

    Pakistan probably would've drawn the series had they not tanked, so probably them.
    5-0

    Sl with the bat and Pakistan with the ball atleast put up a contest but their other discipline was woeful India has been mediocre in both disciplines uptill now.BD punched above their weight and were actually decent for few sessions. Interms of expectations/Performance
