    Rankings update

    So England now best in the world at Tests and ODI's, but not T20s.

    For some reason I checked these earlier today, and audibly lamented Australia's 6th ranking in t20is.

    Holy holy heck.

    England ranked #1 in ODIs surprised me. Lost to Australia 5-0 (or was it 7-0) after the ashes, and didn't make it to semi final in world cup. I remember they beat India 3-0 in England, but when they toured India, they lost 5-0. Had some success against Pakistan however. Anything else significant in last couple of years?

    I think it's something to do with one defeat in home series in 4 years (or something along those lines) - plus dicking the previous number 1 side 4-0 this summer would've helped.

    Bangladesh was 4th not too long ago. Then dropped to 9th the next match. I wouldn't lose too much sleep over them.

    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

    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

    Harsh but true. England are vocal about ODI's not being important at all. They aren't a good ODI side in any case. Aside from one freak series against Pakistan in UAE, they have done little of note. SA, Ind, Aus, Pak and SL are comfortably better.

    So beating Australia, India, Sri Lanka and Pakistan at home as well as beating South Africa away is no longer anything of note?

    India should nail # 1 in ODI's soon enough. And they have the champions trophy as another opportunity of proving it.

    And if we can win the T20 WC next month that should hopefully put us at the top of the T20 rankings as well (although probably not enough games for that).

    If only we can get our Test team/results in order. I'm not worried much about the other formats.

    Yeah but that was the only series he actually recognised. I was simply naming all the other success the England ODI side has had in the last 2-3 years.

    T20 rankings are **** at the moment. Bangladesh were ahead of India a couple of weeks ago and then fell to 9th place after losing one game to Ireland.

    And Pakistan currently are a **** ODI outfit, so it's pretty laughable that they are better than England.

    Never in a million years would I have thought Brumby to admit this!!!!!!
