South Africa replaced India as the World No 1 team in the ICC ODI rankings, following the Proteas' win over Bangladesh in the second ODI, according to the rankings released on Thursday.

 

While India and South Africa have identical points (120) against their name, India are placed second on the basis of decimal points.

India had claimed the top spot in the ICC rankings following their 4-1 win over Australia at home recently.

But India have a chance to reclaim their top spot as they host New Zealand in a three-match ODI series scheduled to begin in Mumbai on October 22.
