Ratings - 4th November 2010
The process of putting the ratings online turned up some transcription errors. The change is minimal, but puts India even closer to Australia.
|3 Tests||India||v||New Zealand|
|Expected Margin||India by 198 runs|
A gross mismatch. New Zealand are even weaker than their rating suggests, if their mauling by Bangladesh is any indication. They will, as ever, fight hard, but their batting can't possibly hope to post a winning total, nor their bowlers roll India twice except in the most outrageous conditions - in which case, they'll undoubtedly be removed for less. On the other hand, India need a 200 run (9 wicket) victory to pass Australia in the number one slot. Barring the unexpected, that's the number that I'll ultimately be taking an interest in.
