So who is ‘On the Podium’? Just looking at last 2 years results…
India? Beat SA at Home and Sri Lanka in Sri Lanka. Beaten by England, Australia and NZ away. Currently Rated No 1 - just.
SA? Cant win away from home, and recently beaten by both England and Aus at home.
Australia? Unbeatable at home - lost away to England and Pakistan in UAE. Beat SA.
England? Won away in SA - lost at home to Sri Lanka and drew with NZ. Lost away to Pakistan (UAE).
NZ? Unbeatable at home - Drew to Pakistan (UAE). Drew in England. Lost last month in Australia.
Pakistan? - Beat Sri Lanka in Sri Lanka. Lost to Sri Lanka in Sri Lanka. Haven’t lost in the UAE (NZ got a draw).
You pick it. Good arguments for all teams. They all have recent good and not-so-good form. Great time for Test cricket. Sri Lanka aren’t that far away, either.
No side is dominating. And, really, until we get a true Test Championship Tournament, it’s just pub (and internet forum) talk. I don’t put much weight onto some anonymous nerd’s mathematical wizardry to produce points in a table.
