Which team is winning cricket this year?
The most-played team in the world this season has been the one of the best cricketing nations, with Australia having won the World Cup.
But it’s not the only side on the rise, with England also getting off to a strong start.
Australia’s win over New Zealand in the second Test of the second Ashes series is a huge step in the right direction for the Australian side, as it has now won three consecutive Test series and has scored over a hundred and fifty runs in each.
In the five-Test series, England have been the better side with a 3-0 win over the West Indies in the last Test.
However, the best result was England’s victory over Australia in the third Test at Lord’s, which the latter was won by a wicketless England.
England won that series 3-1, while the West Indians, who beat New Zealand by seven wickets, had a much more comfortable victory with a 5-0 victory.
Despite this, the West Indian batting team still has plenty of work to do to improve, as they lost to Australia by 13 runs in the series opener, with their most valuable player, Michael Clarke, not getting his best ball.
The second Test was a big test for both teams, as Australia lost to New Zealand at the SCG, losing three wickets in the first innings.
There were some changes for the second innings, as James Anderson’s first-innings dismissal in the fifth over by Darren Sammy was followed by James Anderson going on for two more runs, with Ian Bell also being dismissed.
As a result, England won the match by four wickets and went on to win the series by 12 wickets.
It was the first Test to be played in India and the first to be staged at the Royal Melbourne Cricket Ground, which is home to the IPL.
New Zealand were ranked third in the ICC rankings, with a 7-4 win over England at the WACA.
