New Zealand- #1 ranked test side for the first time ever


Global Moderator
Yeah this is just a very solid, very well-rounded Test side and obviously deserving of this mantle.

Well done Kiwis, looks like a great team. There should a Aus-NZ 4 Test series next summer with 2 Tests in each country.

Pity Aus will be back #1 in 2 weeks when they win India series

Great stuff for NZ. I really enjoy watching them play atm. Have built a genuinely good side around Williamson, Watling, Wagner and Boult. Jamieson's inclusion and Latham's development combined with an aging but still effective Taylor make this a worthy ranking imho. The other players I haven't' mentioned have all contributed to this as well.

Really punching above their weight...


i think australia would take it comfortably tbh, because australia seem to live rent free in the heads of the current nz generation.

jamieson is the first zoomer in the team i believe barring the phillips one off test, so hopefully the next gen can combine the fleming era scrap with the current eras talent.
