    New Feature: We're Number One!

    England is (or will be as soon as the new rankings are published) the number one ranked Test team for the first time since the current ranking system began in 2003. Dave Wilson looks back to see if any earlier editions of the England team also scaled those dizzy heights.

    Is the runs per wicket ratio just england's runs per wicket compared to India's runs per wicket. Or is it more complicated than that.
    I got great enjoyment shouting "WHY THE **** ISN'T THIS GAME BEING PLAYED AT THE BASIN?!>!?!?" to reasonably significant cheers from the sparse crowd
    one day NZ will bring chappell to his knees in a puddle of his own tears and you'll see Phlegm on his belly greedily tasting every delicious tear before watching the hope fade from that old ****s eyes.
    Overrated XI Warner, Rutherford, Steve Smith, Rahane, Bairstow, Alecz Day, Donovan Grobelaar, Luke Ronchi, Faulkner, Dan Christian, Permaul

    Interesting stuff Dave - presumably you'll be doing the definitive analysis of the relative quality of the Chapman/May/Illingworth and Strauss teams next?

    It's offset based on era because the degree of home dominance has varied over the years, as explained here (also linked in the recent feature).
