    Well done India. You totally outplayed the Poms.

      Funny how Graham Gooch can write one minute about Alastair Cook as being "one of the best players in the world" and Geoffrey Boycott on the flipside of that can write "big question marks" remains over all of England's batsmen.What did I miss then?

    Loving this... If lower-ranked teams beat higher ones, it'll condense the mid-table, paving the way for our dominance. Since we play 1 test for evey 3 most other nations play, we'll have to depend on favours from other sides. Also, it's always fun to see those biased english scummers lose in the sub-continent!

      The difference in matches played makes no difference as the rankings work on average points per Test played rather than on total points.

      In that case- only fun to see the English beaten in the sub-continent.

    Solid knocks by pujara but one can never be sure with those flat indian decks

      kenpeg.dawson - 2012-11-19 12:32

      Problem is they both play on the same track.
