    Cricket's grand slam

    50 over World Cup
    ICC World T20
    ICC Champions Trophy
    #1 Ranking in test cricket

    He's also won the CLT20 and the last played India-Pakistan match.

    Athlai doesn't lie. And he doesn't do sarcasm either, so you know it's true!


    'You will look very silly said Mr Salteena with a dry laugh.
    Well so will you said Ethel in a snappy tone and she ran out of the room with a very superier run throwing out her legs behind and her arms swinging in rithum.
    Well said the owner of the house she has a most idiotick run.'

    Dhoni needs to stop resting on past laurels and realize that he is finished. His captaincy, wicket keeping, batting are all **** and he needs to let the younger, and fearless Kohli with positive intent take over. Dhoni is negative because he just keeps standing there with a blank look on his face and does not have 4 slips operating at all times.
    "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

    Also his turtle paced running between the wickets does not help. Age is catching up with him.

    What about #1 ranking in ODI.

    should this be part of the grand slam.

    Winning the World Cup = #1 ranking in ODIs. Otherwise the ranking means **** all. It means a lot in Test because it does not have a Championship.

    Having won the last series played against every other active nation would be Cricket's grand slam

    I can't be bothered going back and finding out if that's been done, guessing maybe Australia had it after beating India in 2004

    rubbish. I can see where you're coming from in that luck plays a larger part than in an overall ranking, but if you go back almost all World Cups were won by the best team, who deserved to win them.

    Howe did the exercise not long ago and posted a link near the top of this page.

    Test Trophies League Table

    SA did it most recently when they beat Australia in Australia in 2012. They lost it when they lost to them at home at the start of 2014. In 2008 they nearly made it but lacked a trophy against Sri Lanka before they were beaten at home by Australia again. They also had 8 in the early 2000s, only missing a trophy against guess which side.

    .
    If England beat Pakistan and Sri Lanka at home in our summer we'll hold the grand slam for the first time.
