I have a big doubt. Can you clear it?

These days i am following cricket and am amazed to see the performance records that our team holds. I haven't seen such record in the recent past. I have a doubt. Is this a performance that we are producing just because opponents play weak cricket or is it our team has grown in stature? recently Aussies played the weakest team and lost. England are struggling to find a foot hold. Is it really that India is emerging as No.1 team for the future or it is just our mere expectations?

As far as the recent series against England goes, england were a bit weak. Because, just look at the margin of victory of Indians. All the matches that India won are with a bit huge margin. Even in the 5th one-day match against England, India have won with 7 overs to spare. India is playing better cricket. No doubt about that, but at the same time as far as this series goes, england played a bit weaker cricket than what they use to play. I guess just a series back, England have won a ODI series in england with 3-0. India definitely out played england but england team was also not playing their best in the recent series.

India is emerging as No.1 team in the world. No doubt in that. Considering the average age of our players and the way Dhoni leads the team. It is sure. I doesn't mean india will win the next world. That requires luck also. One bad day and that's all. You will be out of world cup. But the consistency will be there at least for 4-5 years. That is sure.
