No 1 position keeps a lot of importance for every country whether it is in the field of sports or in any other field. Every one wants to be on number one. Cricket is the game where today’s team holding No. 1 position may go down with its bad performance or we can say that it also depends on other teams performances. We can’t say who will be on first position the next day.
We can just imagine about their rankings but it is just imagination and can’t be depicted as 100% sure. Some days before India was on first positon on ICC One day team ranking report but now it is Australia with 133 Rating points. India is on second and South Africa is on third.
But still India is No. 1 Test Team of the world with 124 Rating points. And Australia is on 3rd position with 119 Rating Points following South Africa who is on 2nd with 120 points which is just one more from Australia.
If we see the list of Top 10 Test Batsmen of world then we can see that there are 3 indian players in the list namely Virender Sehwag, Gautam Gambhir and Sachin Tendulkar. 3 players are of South Africa : Hashim Amla, Jacques Kallis and Graeme Smith while two players are of Australia : Michael Clarke and Ross Taylor.
