Sri Lanka jumps to second place in ODI rankings

srilanka won the seriesSri Lanka have surged ahead of India to second place in the ICC ODI rankings following their 2-1 series win against table-toppers Australia. Sri Lanka’s win, their first in Australia, earned them three points, lifting them to 118, one clear of India.

Despite their recent slump across formats, Australia continue to maintain a healthy lead and are currently on 128 points.

India will have to sweep New Zealand 5-0 in the home one-day series, which begins on November 28, if they are to reclaim the second spot. A 5-0 result will take India to 121 points, while a 4-1 scoreline will leave them a few decimal points short of Sri Lanka, who will have the opportunity to add to their tally when they clash against West Indies at home from December 9.

South Africa’s 3-2 series win against Pakistan in the United Arab Emirates left them in fourth place at 115 points, and their next one-day fixture will be against the touring Indians in January. The results of that series, and Australia’s post-Ashes ODIs against England, could decide the standings leading up to the World Cup, which begins on February 19.
