London:A runners-up finish in the just-concluded Asia Cup cricket tournament has lifted India to number five position above Pakistan in the International Cricket Council (ICC) championship table.

India, starting the tournament at sixth place, got one point from the tournament to finish with 106 points, as per the latest ratings released by the ICC.

World champions Australia continued to top the list with 137 points and were followed by New Zealand (117), Sri Lanka (116) and South Africa.

Victory in the Asia Cup elevated Sri Lanka to the third place in the ratings with South Africa sliding down the table following disappointing results in last year's World Cup and a heavy series defeat in New Zealand.

Sri Lanka will have a chance to climb to second spot when they take on South Africa in a home series later this month.

ICC ODI Championship table:

1 Australia (137)

2 New Zealand (117)

3 Sri Lanka (116)

4 South Africa (110)

5 India (106)

6 Pakistan (104)

7 West Indies (101)

8 England (99)

9 Zimbabwe (61).
