Its simple mate. The other teams factor on all the rankings. I remember back about a decade that the Proteas were number 1, to my delight, for a brief while under Shaun Pollack and the Aussies cried foul. Probably righfully so, during that obvious decade of their dominance. It was something pitiful between us and them - like 1 point on the rankings but becasue the way other teams played a temporary anomaly transpired.
The true test isn't getting there, but staying there or consistently dominating the mount. Until they so that for a while, little is proven or set in stone about their dominance.
