Not surprisingly Australia is no more number one in ODI ranking. South Africa has just taken over the first slot. Credit must go to India as their recent wins against Aussies in CB series forced Australia to step down.
One event can change course of history. Last year when India departed very early from world cup, none had ever thought that just in one year the come back of same team would be so fascinating to watch. But one event changed every thing. That was 20-20 world cup.Cricket India is in the talk now. Domestic cricket is boosting as IPL is emerging as one of the biggest commercial domestic sport.
India is not far behind from no1 position in ODI or Test ranking. I am confident with healthy domestic tournaments and new winning attitude will very soon make India as no team in the world. The probability is even more as other top teams have to manage their new problems. Australia need work on youth composition in team along with focus on quality of cricket. South Africa is clueless on their team selection process where quota on proposition of colored is still prevalent.
