whether or not you really believe the rankings, it's hard to argue that the players at the top are bad.
I was thinking to myself the other day that there was a lack of England players in either list. Now we have the 3rd and 7th best bowlers in the world up there. Nice.
I always knew Cook would come good. He played far more fluently for Essex at the end of last season than he does for England, but there is a big difference between the 2nd division of the County Championship and Australia and South Africa. But great to see him get his 100.
Well done to Bell also. While he doesn't bowl, his fielding his very useful in our current XI. He just needs to score when the chips are down. I said he was lacking confidence after the Harris dismissal, and 140 is just what he needs to get that back.
