Test Ladder Updated

I have updated the Test Ladder through the start of the 2010 Northern Hemisphere season.

Two changes occurred:

Australia rose to the top of the ladder owing to the win over New Zealand in New Zealand. (A drawn or lost series would have seen India pass Australia to claim second place.) England's draw against South Africa weighed too heavily in the face of Australian successes against weaker teams.

New Zealand, despite the loss at home, still managed to accumulate enough points to get past the makeshift West Indies' elevens beaten by Bangladesh (hence the unlikely high placing of the weakest of Test sides) and Australia.

England currently look likely to head into the Ashes series in top spot again, though.
