A clean sweep of Zimbabwe helped India maintain their third spot in the latest ICC ODI Team Rankings, released here on Tuesday. India now have 111 rating points on the back of the 3-0 series win in Harare. Pakistan too was rewarded for their recent series sweep against the Netherlands. The Babar Azam-led side eked out a hard-fought victory by a similar 3-0 in their Cricket World Cup Super League series, moving to 107 rating points and fourth in the standing.
New Zealand continue to reign supreme at the top of the table with 124 rating points following the Black Caps’ narrow 2-1 series triumph over the West Indies, while England remain second with 119 rating points.
India’s next chance to make further ground on the ODI rankings comes when they host South Africa for three ODIs, starting October 6.
