India are No. 1 in Tests and Joint No. 1 in ODIs...and No. 3 in T20Is. Depending on how they do in the upcoming ODI series and T20I series and how other teams do.. there is a chance they can be No. 1 IN EVERY format by the end of their South Africa tour...

If that were to happen it will indeed be one of the GREATEST achievements not just in cricket but in any sport.

After the table has been reset on May 1st (another legacy of England biased system) India are now WAY ahead of South Africa the No. 2 ranked team... at 125 points...to 112... Meanwhile Bangladesh move to 8 West Indies sadly drop to 9 and Pakistan languish at 7...smiling smiley

India Confirm their No. 1 Status... Lord's was a combination of extreme conditions, poor team selection, bad luck and poor batting skills... in that order...

England got the two best days to bowl..and the Best day to bat...

the way India bounced back in Trent Bridge was amazing...

I fear a combination of flat tracks and inclement weather may deny India the chance to come back and win 3-2

Even after losing 1-4 in England.. India retain No. 1 rank...that is how far ahead they were before the series... but their lead has been reduced a lot.

India need to win this series in Australia for their No.1 ranking to be credible.

With the win in Adelaide even a 1-3 loss will mean they retain No. 1... though it will be tarnished... for sure...

After the World Cup the icc finally will initiate a test cricket world championship. It’s not as well plannrd as has been suggested here by yours truly about a decade ago. But it’s a start. India under Kohli will look to win the first edition.

India are going to hold on to their ranking for a long time now. Even if all other countries are at full strength, India will still hold sway. Reason is BCCI has invested at grass root level and as a result of that ,there is a huge pool of talent available. I don't see that changing anytime soon.
