If you look at the current Aussie and SA bowling units, given the form that our batsmen are in, we should be able to post 600+ scores against them on a consistent basis. There are few in those countries who can bat the way Naeem Islam batted or take the battle to our spinners. So all in all, I think at least some of those scores should result in inning victories for us. Rankings may not say so, but based on form, we're clearly among the top three in Test cricket. So the question isn't whether we deserve the status, the question is whether we should still be playing lower ranked teams like the West Indies and New Zealand, or whether we should have more bilateral series featuring 5-7 Tests against the top guns.
