India eye second place
In recent times, India have trounced the West Indies (Trinidad, 2002); beaten Pakistan in their backyard (2004-05), humbled the Australians in their outback (Adelaide 2003-04 and Perth 2007-08), bearded the English lion in its own den (2007) and tamed the South Africans (2007).

Interestingly, if India (118 points) win this Test they could possibly replace South Africa (119) at the number two position in the ICC Test rankings.
Australia are comfortably perched at the top with 128 points in their bag.
