India dropped a rung to third, but Virat Kohli continues head the batting chart in the latest ICC One-day rankings.

Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s team conceded second place to Sri Lanka as Australia maintained their place at the top of the heap.

Sri Lanka's 3-2 series win over England helped them gain one rating point and move up to 112, the same rating points as India.

However, when the ratings were calculated beyond the decimal point, Angelo Mathews's side squeezed past India.

In the individual rankings, Dhoni remained steady at sixth, followed by Shikhar Dhawan at eight (a loss of one position).

Rohit Sharma entered the top-20 at No 20.

Among bowlers, seasoned off-spinner Ravindra Jadeja slipped a position to fifth and is the only Indian in the top-10.

Sri Lanka claimed the five-match series 3-2 after winning the fifth and final ODI with a six-wicket victory.
