According to the official website of Cricket Australia (CA), Clarke said, "Whoever wins that tournament will be seen as the number one one-day team in the world. That's the way I've always looked at one-day rankings. I guess you love being number one in any form of the game but…you get a great indicator who is the number one team in the world in six months time playing in a World Cup. That's what dictates it.''
Australia, who were the winners of the World Cup in 1987, 1999, 2003 and 2007, recently lost their brief grip on the number one Test ranking to the Proteas.
As far as India's challenge in grabbing the world cup is concerned, we still need to groom an effective all-rounder. But on the whole, batting in terms of putting up a big score or chasing big runs has never been a problem.
fielding has also improved tremendously. Thus, all we need to do is
to make sure that our bowlers right from Shami Ahmed, Bhuvneshwar
Kumar to R Ashwin and Sir Jadeja contribute substantially on their
part. There will be no looking back once we become the true champions
by lifting the coveted 2015 world cup.
