Before you laugh at Nepal, at least hear me out. Nepal just beat Hong Kong. That doesn't sound too impressive, but consider that Hong Kong just beat Afghanistan. And Afghanistan beat the West Indies and even drew a series. Now the West Indies have beaten India, who are the best team in Asia. Thus it necessarily follows that Nepal is better than India, ergo Nepal is the best team in Asia.

Attaching a poll especially for the IndYeahs of the world wide web so he might vote correctly for the first time in his life.

Don't think so. Success of teams in LOI's can only be measured by the number of trophies they have won. Below are the most successful teams in Asia:

1) India - 2 WC's, 2 CT, 1 T20 WC, 6 Asia Cup, 4 U19 WC's, 3 U19 Asia cup.
2) Pakistan - 1 WC, 1 CT, 1 T20 WC, 2 Asia Cup, 2 U19 WCs, 1 U19 Asia cup.
3) SriLanka - 1 WC, 1 CT, 1 T20 WC, 5 Asia Cup
4) Afghanistan - 1 U19 Asia Cup

Rest of Asian teams are just playing catch up games TBH.

Nepal beat a Hong Kong team composed of Indians, so Nepal beat India.

India: 2 world cups and 1 loss to Nepal.

I'm sorry to say yaars but this makes no sense whatsoever. Everyone knows that the best way to determine which side is best is to compare overall head to head.

And Pakistan completely OBLITERATES all other Asian sides. It's not even close. They are the best Asian side. You know it pains me to say this because I'm a well wisher of Indian cricket. Good news is that with the current Indian talent, in 20 years they will easily bring that deficit down to 30. #FACT

This qualifier just shows that WC should be bigger and better, associates are more competitive than ever and to make the jump up they need matches against better sides, they used to get that at the WC but they don’t anymore.

I've got Afghan Pashtun ancestry...8 generations ago a trader from Kandahar came to Comilla and a couple hundred years later I was born. Why would I be hating on Afghanistan. I'm just stating a few facts of teams which have beaten other teams and then creating a polling question as I'm curious to see the results. If you notice, I haven't voted at all. I'm just asking a genuine question about current day cricket. Nothing more or less.

Interesting to hear about your Afghan anchestry.

My late grandma also told me about her fathers family being Pathan from Afghanistan, migrated to Bengal on some sort business trip and stayed back. During the 71 time, the West Pak army raided his village, he spoke in Pashto, some them were Pasto speaking understood and after a quick check if there’s any weapons or anything hidden, they left. So basically he and his fam survived for being Pathan origin.

Kapil Dev lifting that world cup trophy in Lords inspired millions to pick up cricket in Asia. Before that cricket was not so popular and Asian teams were just there to fit the bill. Also, I just looked at the map to confirm since I was unsure and found out that Lords is not in India. Its in Central London with St. Johns Wood is the closest metro station served by Jubilee line.

BTW, India is the 1st team to win a WC at home in 2011. Aussies got inspired and repeated the same in 2015.

Bottom line, let it be 1983 or 2011 we have inspired few teams round the world.

LMAO...how can 20 overs be a shoot out? Its not that one team get to play full 50 overs and other team got only 20. It was same 20 overs for both teams...correct na? England lost fair and square.

You want to know which is really a fluke win? Its your beloved Pakistan winning the 92 WC. Not sure how young you were then but I can shed some light. Pak were 42/7 vs Eng in group game and were in verge of getting knocked out. Then rain happened and both teams got 1 point each. In the same tournament, the invincible SA got screwed by DL...else it was game over for Pak in finals. Also, India already beaten them in that tournament when Imran/Wasim/Mushy etc have no answer to 18 yr old Sachin. Miandad has no clue how to face Srinath...lol.

I can go on and on but why bother. They won the thing so good on them. But Pak fans calling India wins as fluke is laughable.

Aree yaar, that was a fluke win too. I agree with you. Doesn't change the fact that ind's first CT "win" wasn't even a win. Co-winners is a laughable concept that only exists in cricket.

Not sure why u think I'm a pak fan. Never have been. In fact, I hate everything pak. But it's hard to argue with stats, which is why it pains me to admit they are the best Asian side by a kashmiri mile. correct na? #FACT

^What stats? Check post #2 and compare which teams has maximum number of trophies. Lets put it this way, LOI cricket is all about winning championships...JAMODIs are irrelevant. And India has by far most number of trophies. As far as H2H is concerned, yes they won more meaningless game but come clutch matches...they always surrendered.

Lol you know what would happen, the most ironic thing is that, if Pakistan won more tournaments indians will be like we won the most matches.

Tournaments are just over hyped matches, statistically Pakistan is the better team since they have a better W/R vs India. You can't hide from that fact.

20 over final for a ODI tournament is a joke. That should be filed as another WT20 win, not CT. 1983 WC was kind of a dice game...no one really knew how that format worked back then. Didn't Gavaskar once play a 200 ball 20 trying to draw an ODI? That should tell you enough about that era. 2011 was just like PAK's 92 fluke. PAK shouldn't have even made the final, and same thing with India after umpires kept giving Tendy lives in that semifinal. I think he had like 2 lives + several dropped chances. Incredibly flukish. Then I think Dhoni managed to get a toss redo against Sri Lanka in the final.
