There is some very sad news coming in for all Indian Cricket Fans right before Diwali. As we type and as you read, South Africa is in the middle of the Second One Day International against Bangladesh. If they win, which by the current scorecard and the quality both the teams possess, it clearly looks like they will, South Africa will be the New World Number 1 in One Day Cricket. Yes, you read that right Ladies and Gentlemen.

India and South Africa are currently locked at 120 rating points and a win for South Africa would help them overthrow the men in blue and achieve the ‘Numero Uno’ Ranking. India would have a chance to take it back though if they manage to defeat New Zealand convincingly.
This is certainly not the news Indian Fans wanted to hear but unfortunately, this is how it is. The Men In Blue take on New Zealand in a 3 match One Day International Series which starts from the 21st of October. India has dropped KL Rahul and got in Dinesh Karthik instead and also given a chance to Shardul Thakur who really impressed in the Sri Lanka series.

Cric Crak would also like to take this opportunity to congratulate the South African Cricket Team and wish the Indian Team all the luck for the series which is about to begin.
