Pak skipper Khan believes Australia is still the world’s bestApril 25th, 2009 - 5:29 pm ICT by ANI
Dubai, Apr.25 (ANI): Australia are still the world’s best one-day team in the view of Pakistan captain Younis Khan, despite official rankings and recent form suggesting otherwise.
“They’re still the best team in the world. They have a couple of good all-rounders and they still have a batsman like (Andrew) Symonds, now he’s in form, so I think they’re still the best team in the world,” said Khan.
Australian acting captain Michael Clarke was happy to agree.
“I guess we’ll always say yes after a win. The way I’ve always felt about that sort of stat is that other teams make that decision. That’s a real compliment to hear that from another team, especially from their captain,” Clarke said, adding that the win could be taken both as a sign of the depth of Australian cricket and of the side’s ability to produce the goods under pressure.
