    England is no 1 in test cricket. Congrats. Are they worthy though? India lost their talismatic coach, and seems to be resting on their laurels after winning the World Cup. What about South Africa? In the previous post we saw the stats. Best batsmen over the last two years consistently belongs to England. We all […]
