Australian batsman Mike Hussey has rejected the ICC's Test rankings, which place his team at fifth, saying that the Aussies are “definitely better than that and the system is not a true reflection of their form.”

Australia dropped to an all-time low of fifth after being blanked 0-2 in the just-concluded Test series against India but Hussey said the side does not deserve to be number five. “I don't think we're the fifth-best team in the world. I don't think that's a true reflection of our team, we're definitely better than that,” Hussey said.

“With the new Test championship coming in, that will probably give a better indication of where teams are at, and a better understanding of where teams are ranked.

“I don't think about being fifth-best team in the world, I don't necessarily agree with that,” he was quoted as saying by 'The Sydney Morning Herald'.
