Team India ranked 3rd in latest Men’s ODI Team Rankings leaving behind Pakistan



Team India has underlined their importance as one of the best teams in the world yet again as they sit above Pakistan in the latest International Cricket Council (ICC) ODI team rankings. After beating England 2-1 in the three-match ODI series, India will now set their sight on the top spot. India beat England in the final ODI in Manchester on Sunday thanks to an unbeaten hundred from Rishabh Pant.

India’s win on Sunday was a significant one, because had India lost they would have dropped rating points and could have paved way for Pakistan to take over the third spot in the table. Both India and Pakistan were on 106 rating points but had India lost the match, they would have dropped to 103 rating points and inevitably sent Pakistan to third.

However, a brilliant batting display from the Indian side saw them cruise through total with ease. Initially, 72/4, Rishabh Pant and Hardik Pandya guided India home and took control of the match. They will now be eying another big win in the ODI series when they take on the West Indies on Friday.

India will also have three more ODI matches to play when they visit Zimbabwe in August and could be targeting the spot in the ICC ODI rankings in the coming months.

India will play a three-match ODI series, with all matches taking place in Port of Spain. If India does win the ODI series, they will close the gap on second-placed England, who missed the opportunity to close the gap on leaders New Zealand. The Kiwis still occupy the top spot as they too won their ODI series against Ireland, although all the three affairs were a close contest.

In the rest of the standings, Australia and South Africa occupy the fifth and sixth spots respectively. As things stand, Bangladesh is seventh followed by Sri Lanka at eighth and West Indies at ninth place in the ICC ODI standings. Afghanistan completes the rest of the top 10 while Ireland, who narrowly lost the ODI series against New Zealand is 11th in the standings.
