Not sure why you are so obsessed with the three test playing teams...... England is going down much faster than gravity can pull, South Africa has lost idea of winning matches, and Australia has just risen from Ashes...literally..... Leave the last tour which country has won a match outside their own country. You call India slow track people but is the same not true for your so called only three interesting teams that they are just fast track teams....not sure you know it well....bowling spin is as much art as bowling fast and batting against both types of bowling.....just grow up and love the sports...The best team Australia lost 4:0 to India not long ago...England won in India just by fluke as a lot was going on in Indian team that time...I bet they will not win any series in India in next decade to come....

Ian: Is Test Cricket the best when AUS, ENG, and SA play? Does any one watch when other countries play? The top three teams: AUS, SA, and ENG. We should just focus on these teams. Everyone else is in the 2nd category. How about a World Cup of Tests for these three teams?
