Is India now the leaders in cricket.

India have won the CB Series outplaying Australia in every department of the game in the finals. The tri-series must be ranked as one of the toughest tournaments in the game, alongside the World Cup and Champions Trophy.

Most keen observers of the game would agree that if the umpiring in the Test series had been competent, India would have at least drawn the series if not won it.

Clearly, India are now at par with the world champions, if not better than them. It would make the trans-pacific rivalry the premier contest in the game.

India had also won the Twenty20 championship in South Africa, and the Under-19 team has recently won the junior world title in Kuala Lumpur.

Have India rewritten the new world order in cricket?
