Top of the world

In 35 years of watching cricket, I have never been able to claim that the England team are the best in the world. I remember watching spellbound as Botham, Gower and Willis defeated the Aussies in 1981 – but that team were thrashed 5-0 by the West Indies a few years later. Now, England are top of the official Test rankings having spanked the previous number 1 team in three tests.

I’d like to see them beat the Indians in India, the South Africans in their own hemisphere and then pick up the World Cup as well before I’m absolutely sure they are top of the world, but this sure beats the 15 years of putting up with rampant Aussies which has only just come to an end…
