London: According to ICC's media release, Sri Lanka's 2-1 series win over India has moved it into a clear fourth place on the revised ICC Test Championship table. Prior to this series Sri Lanka shared fourth position with the West Indies, but are now .08 of a point ahead of the team from the Caribbean.
The series result replaces that of the previous fixture in 1997/98, when both Tests were drawn, thus giving Sri Lanka an additional point to its total (now 14 from 13 completed series) while India lose a point, 9 from 13 series. India's continued poor away form means it drops a place to eighth on the ladder, one position below Pakistan, who could extend the gap further with a winning home series against New Zealand in October. The updated championship table:
