I see we are No. 2 . We have the 6th highest points. and are only 3 points from being 5th by weighting. No.2 is a tad or two incorrect.
No, it is 100% correct.
The ICC have set the rules and how rankings are calculated. We are #2 by their rules. The ranking value is determined by points/matches played over the last 3 years (IIRC). Bit of an explanation here: http://www.espncricinfo.com/ci-icc/content/story/874363.html
I know its correct, I said that. The reality though is we are not No.2 in the world right now, that's very plain to see. We ended up being tested and equalled by SL at the end of that tour, and India thrashed us with a weakened team. I haven't watched Bangers as its meaningless. And the weighing is a few small points from us dropping down the leaderboard.
Numbers are fun
