    Where do West Indies stand right now?

    Today's victory makes that six test wins in a row, seven test matches unbeaten and three test series won in a row. So the question is where do WI stand as a force in test cricket at the moment? obviously we're no SA and beating Zim doesn't mean a whole bunch but when you consider that we beat NZ 2-0 who are giving England a rough ride right now (yes i know NZ are at home but still..), and Bang drew a test in Sri-lanka recently and yet we beat them 2-0 away, is it too much to say we're improving? .
    One Day cups- Champions trophy winners-T20 cup-29 test series without defeat record- and some think we're a "minnow".

    tbf you always think that WI is better than what the ranking shows
    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

    Nowhere near SA, England, Australia, Pakistan or India and I'd say NZ are stronger.

    7th is about right IMO.

    We will see in December, New Zealand have progressed quite a bit since then, at least in the bowling stakes.

    Windies and NZ are at par IMO. Both will beat each other at home and get beaten away. Even England are finding it hard to beat Kiwis at home
    Get well soon Yuvi!!

    I'm looking at them rankings and I can't say WIndies really are better than 7th, Sri Lanka is imho a fair bit better as a side they've definitely got the edge on batsmen and the contest between the bowlers is a close one.

    IMO WI are 7th in world rankings. WI have no chance in hell of beating the following teams away: Eng, Oz, India, Pakistan, RSA, SL. Fancy WI chances at home vs all the above teams except for Oz and RSA. We recently beat teams that we r supposed to be beating but for me, our batting lineup (especially when Shiv retires) remains a major concern.
    Cause Slifer said so.........!!!!
