Wtf England has six players in the top 11 but if I'm not mistaken they are not the top test team at present.

You are very much mistaken.
England are the top ranked test side, and they are the top ranked twenty20 side. They are the 5th ranked ODI side.

With all due respect, only one person here has complained that you have too many England players in your side, and let's be honest, he said that because he wasn't aware that England are the best test side in the world.

So quit complaining and pipe down.
