Does winning ICC tournaments reflect how good a team is?

Just answer this, if the ATG Aussie team had not won any world cups or the WI ATG team had not won a single world cup, would they still be considered ATG?

 

Also would those teams choke in WTC or CT finals?

 

You will get your answer

 

This is arguably indias ATG team. This is also at a time  when other all time stronger teams like australia, England and south africa are much weaker

 

Not winning and dominating at such a time is extremely disappointing and a definite under achievement 

 

Comparing this with south africa who were labeled chokers or our previous teams who perinally underachieved is being satisfied with mediocrity 

 

Today we have unlimited money and pool of talent coming in, way more than any other team. Winning is the only measure of success. There is no way we should compromise for mediocrity  or compare with our past teams or strong teams which underachieved in history 

This isn't India's ATG team. ATG teams are perfect teams. This isn't. This is flawed. Especially in LOIs. In this era, we need to differentiate between formats, tests and LOIs because test teams can look quite different to LOIs which wasn't the case during WI and Aus dominance. We can say test can be called ATGs but LOIs not. So which of the Indian team you think is ATG test or ODI?

 

Example, England ODI side is quite different to test side and can be called ATG. Test side isn't.

funny how you claim Sena declined to let us be on top rofl.

 

like india and co were on top when australia and south africa dominated?? look at our pathetic bowling in those times. get real. be objective. 

 

you are a product of your time. this is an ATG test side. possibly an ATG odi side with the right captain who picks the right players. 

 

Stop comparing past eras. thats why pakistan is where they are right now. They always romanticize about their past glory which btw is pretty mediocre in tests. Never reached number 1 till misbah was in charge. 

 

in 90s, west indies and aussies were top sides. pakistan perhaps 3. rest were all weak. 

 

in 2000, we had aussies and saffers again. india had poor bowlers. pakistan had one good bowler and rest fodders. west indies declined massively post 2002 ish. 

lanka was strong at home but thats about it. they could never compete away. Infact a weakened sri lanka beat south africa away 2 - 0 not too long ago albeit without abd. 

 

the indian side that england had to play out of their skins to beat in 2012 was a joke. its a farce. old past it, has been decrepit side. Even the aussie side they beat were poor. Just prior to beating aussies and indians, they got smashed by s.africa in their own home and lost 2 - 0 to pakistan. i believe they lost to lanka as well.

ICC ranking clearly shows we are not that good a limited over side. In Tests we are good.  Other teams take a very long time to rebuild. So we will be enjoying this for a while.

we are a good odi side. we are just guided by a useless dimwit captain. if we get rid of him, we will be a top side again in odi. 

we need rohit to captain and pick the right players. thats all.

only tests. only tests matter

 

1) lloyd west indies greatest

2) ponting's aussies from 2002-2007

3) waugh's aussies are overrated. got smacked by weak india in 1998 -1999

4) virat chewtiya's india. would be higher with any other good captain like rahane or rohit. 1 series win in s.africa away from overtaking waugh's aussies. if they win in n.z then they take over punter's aussie team.

5) g.smith saffers. interchangeable with virat's india. oen of the best teams of all time. Underrated side. unfortunately they had many draws and several losses at home to rank on par with the above 4 teams. the loss at home to aussies, draw to old decrepit indian side in 2011, loss to england all hurt their legacy. 

6) dhoni's 2006-2010 india. strong team. one of the best batting sides of all time. competed well everywhere. dint dominate at home like virat's india

7) imran ghandu's pakistan is there for moral victory. they will claim to be number 3 spot as moral victory of being the second best team in 80s add credibility to their weak legacy. they have barely any notable away wins and struggled to beat one of the worst indian test sides of all time in the late 80s. no series win in australia, no series win in w.indies albeit a draw vs a weaker version of goat side. The side they drew with dint have the deadly 4 pronged attack.

8) kane's n.z. best n.z team of all time. 

9) cronje's saffers. couldnt even draw a game in australia. poor effort. 

10) strauss's england

11) paine's aussies

12) vaughn's england

Graeme Smiths Saffers didn't lose a single away series in I think six or eight years. 

Won't rate Virats' team ahead of them for sure.

they lost  at home and drew multiple times. virat's india is better. a win in s.africa will further cement their legacy.

WI declined after 94-95. South africa was the best team in the 90s without winning WC. Then Australia. Australia became great in 2000s. 90s Australia wasn't great nor 80s.

Sorry but the trio of 

Gavaskar, Amarnath, Vengsarkar  

Combined with

Sandeep Patil, Shastri, Dev can't be called a joke batting lineup. 

 

The bowling lineup was very weak, I"ll give you that. 

 

 

 

thats a poor side. bowling wins games. bowling was piss poor.

kane's n..z would spank imran's pak imo actually. swap them. paine's aussie would and already have spanked kane's n.z. so paine's aussies are actually number 7.

Aussies 70s were way better, Paine's Aussies haven't done anything to even get a mention. 

Even Sa 90s were better.
