For the record, India won Champions Trophy in England-which is not our backyard and India won Trination-Series in Caribbean-which is also not our backyard. At this point of time, India are rightly the NUMBER 1.

india dont deserve to be number 1. they only play well in their own background and they ruin all team by making IPL. how many players retired for the sake of IPL and ICL. they dont play with lower rank team because they are scared if they lose, they will lose their rank
