- — PTI

Dubai: Their dom­i­nat­ing per­for­mance against Eng­land cou­pled with Aus­tralia’s shock loss to Zim­babwe on Sun­day made In­dia the sole num­ber one team in the lat­est ICC ODI rank­ings is­sued. “World cham­pion In­dia have been con­firmed as the num­ber- one ranked side in the Re­liance ICC ODI Team Rank­ings fol­low­ing Zim­babwe’s three wick­ets vic­tory over Aus­tralia in a tri­an­gu­lar se­ries match in Harare on Sun­day,” the ICC said in a state­ment. In­dia had joined Aus­tralia on top of the ta­ble after win­ning the third ODI in Not­ting­ham at 114 rat­ings points, but took sole pos­ses­sion at the cov­eted num­berone spot after Zim­babwe recorded their first vic­tory over Aus­tralia in 31 years. This re­sult meant Aus­tralia have dropped three rat­ings points and slipped be­hind South Africa and Sri Lanka into fourth po­si­tion on 111 rat­ings points. South Africa, fol­low­ing vic­to­ries over Aus­tralia and Zim­babwe, are sit­ting in sec­ond spot on 113 rat­ings points, while Sri Lanka also have 111 rat­ings points but are ranked above Aus­tralia in third po­si­tion by a frac­tion of a point. With five ODIs to be played this week, there is po­ten­tial for fur­ther changes.
