Rankings a trifle for Mike

Melbourne: Mike Hussey has rejected the International Cricket Council’s Test rankings, which place his team at fifth, saying that the Aussies are “definitely better than that and the system is not a true reflection of their form.”

Australia dropped to an all-time low of fifth after being blanked 0-2 in the just-concluded Test series against India but Hussey said the side does not deserve to be at No. 5.

“I don’t think we’re the fifth-best team in the world. I don’t think that’s a true reflection of our team… We’re definitely better than that,” Hussey was quoted saying by an Australian newspaper. “With the new Test Championship coming in, that will probably give a better indication of where teams are at and a better understanding of where teams are ranked.”

The proposed Test Championship, if contested now, would not feature Australia because the side is not inside the top-four bracket. (PTI)
