Rogers casts doubt on Australia’s top rank

Melbourne: Opening batsman Chris Rogers is uncertain Australia deserves to be ranked world No. 1 in Tests, saying the team's 4-0 drubbing by India was not the mark of a top team.

Australia were promoted to the pinnacle for the first time in nearly five years on Thursday, when the ranking system dropped results from the 2010-11 season from its calculations.

While hailed by most local media, Australia's promotion without a ball being bowled has raised eyebrows.

"I don't know, personally," Rogers said. "Obviously, there's still some unfinished business.  Losing four-nil in India - you can't do that if you're number one - but I think to beat South Africa in South Africa meant a lot. They were number one and to go beat them in their place; I think that is a big achievement."
