Test Player Rankings

The big winners from the England team in the latest ICC rankings are Alastair Cook and Monty Panesar, monty having broken into the top 10 bowlers in the world. Just goes to show what a terrible decision it was to leave Monty on the sidelines in the first two matches of the Ashes. Apparently, he is now the highest rated English spinner for 30 years!

So with Panesar and Hoggard joint 6th, Pietersen still at 3rd and Paul Collingood up to 13th, along with Alastair Cook already up to 20th, England players are doing a little better than normal! Unfortunately this may say more about the standard of test cricket right now 9with the exception of Australia) rather than the prowess of the England players, but it's a time to be positive!
