India consolidates No 1 ranking in ICC ODI list

Last updated on: November 17, 2014 07:04 IST

World champions India consolidated on the top spot in the ICC ODI Team Rankings after sweeping the series against Sri Lanka, which concluded in Ranchi on Sunday.

-Scorecard

India had started the series in third place on 113 ratings points and finished on 117 ratings points – two points clear of South Africa, which is involved in a five-ODI series against Australia.

In contrast, Sri Lanka retained fourth position but slipped to 108 after conceding three ratings points.

It now hosts England in a seven-ODI series, leading Alastair Cook's side by one ratings point.

However, with the Australia-South Africa series locked at one-all, both sides have an opportunity to regain the No 1 ranking.

But to make this happen, either side will have to win the remaining three matches.

If Australia wins the series 4-1, then it will move ahead of India by a fraction of a point (0.2 ratings points).

South Africa will end on 118 ratings points and Australia on 111 ratings points if the series result is reversed.
