1)Sri Lanka very poor nation I doubt whether players will get any salary in first-class cricket or not?! even the player's salaries are very low at the international level but yet Sri Lanka won all the ICC trophies. ICC WORLD CUP-1 TIME CHAMPIONS TROPHY 1 TIME T-20 WC -1 TIME. But now the present Sri Lankan team is completely down and out.
2)Pakistan same situation as the above but Geographically and population size is more they also won all the ICC Trophies for 1 time and produce fast bowlers like Imran, Wasim, and Waqar.
3)Australia is the smallest in population but all players are match-winners up to 2015 and they look unbeatable on any conditions but the present situation is different...
4)Present Situation England team looks more formidable in all formats of the game to me...
5)Present West Indies team is the worst team compare to the 1970s and '80s and '90s

Even this challenging situation would ease
Indian teams winning track is high when compared to all other teams. In the olden days, the Indian team was very week and the WI teams are very strong. Slowly there was a change and our team got strengthened and other teams start losing good players. Sri Lanka team is in a very bad position and the Pakistan team is also not doing well. So I always consider the Indian team as the best team.
Earlier, the best team would be considered by the way they played in test matches and it was the best played by England, West Indies and Australia along with India but now, the style and liking have changed and people don't watch test matches and prefer T20 than ODI.
In the Test ranking, we have the country ranking in the following with their points: India - 120, Australia - 108, England and New Zealand - 105, South Africa - 98, Sri Lanka - 95, Pakistan - 85, West Indies - 81, Bangladesh - 60 and Afghanistan - 49.
In the ODI/50 over ranking, we have the country ranking in the following with their points: Eng-125, Ind - 121, NZ - 112, SA & Aus- 110, Pak - 98, Ban - 86, SL - 81, WI - 80 and Afg - 57.
In the T20 ranking, we have the country ranking in the following with their points: Pak-270, Aus - 269, Eng-265, Ind - 264, SA - 262, NZ - 245, Afg & SL - 236, Ban-226 and WI - 223.
From the three teams mentioned above, Australia is on the top spot as they have played better and a good competitor for any team as every player contributes. The 2nd will be the Indian team as they are playing much better than WI in all formats. WI was the toughest team in the past but from 2008, they have gone down and still in the slogging point. They need to get better players.
