Who will be ranked as the number 1 batsman and bowler in the world this time in 2006?

so who will it be ? will dravid keep in this position or will he decline and be overtaken by the likes of kallis and lara? i personally hope that this number one spot is regained by the little master sachin himself as he is looking like he can regain his past form. although who knows, maybe if strauss has a good ashes series then he will be puching his way up the rankings?

as for bowlers i would predict that they will be topped by either, mcgrath, warne or murali unless harmison recaptures his form and has a good ashes and a good winter tour.

so what are your opinions and predictions who will be top of the ICC batsman and bowler rankings this time next year, today being the 28th of april.

Dravid is not no.1 today so he does not have the position to lose.

No. 1 bowler will be McGrath and batsman will be Ponting after both feast on the English.

n.b. I am not saying that Ponting is the best batsman only that the rankings will have him on top.

No.

Pathan = The most overrated bowler in the world, possibly barring Sami.
KP = He may set the world on fire but they don't give you a full rating until you've played 40 innings.

y does every1 bear down on sami!! honestly he is the unluckiest bowler i knw, for one im sure u havent watched him play, as much as i have...he has his bad moments but for the most part he is a very good bowler...unfortunately his record doesnt reflect that, but he is a good bowler just that he hasnt developed his intellect around cricket to pick up wickets

umm i was joking.
i dont rate pathan at all. and while im not going to dismiss pieterson, id be extremely surprised if he ended up anywhere near the best batsman in the world by next year.

Rahul Dravid and Glenn McGrath for me, although I'd love to see Sachin Tendulkar claim top spot once more.

Who knows, it could be Ponting and McGrath as well, or Ponting and Murali.....

As long as it's an Indian in batting :cool:
