of course we were worthy no1s. we won 8 series and drew 1 when there was no other outstanding rival.
Can you go through each of those series? If I'm not mistaken, the away wins were in Bangladesh and Australia?

So you're saying England didn't deserve to be number 1.

it wasnt built on home wins. we won in aus and drew in safferland. these teams were 2nd and 3rd at the time.Then we HAMMERED India 4-0 who were no1 at the time. saffers had the chance to hand out a beating to India and could only manage 1-1. rankings are pretty fair. Eng unlikely to be No1 again for a while
But it was, look at the away series against India, West Indies, Sri Lanka and Pakistan. The only away series win was in Australia, forget the Bangladesh one, most teams win there regardless.
