Australia has been pushed down…
Posted by Sankar on February 18, 2007
Australia is no longer the top team in Cricket ODI as per the official ICC rankings. The recent losses against the English and Kiwis pushed them down to the 2nd spot behind South Africa.
Australia has been holding the No 1 spot since 2002 when the ranking system was introduced.
I am sure this means nothing to Australia as many would still consider them to be the best team out there. Maybe this is just a temporary drop… But this gives the other teams a little bit hope and confidence that Australia can be overcome.
Let’s wait and see what happens in the World Cup.
