DhoniDubai: Team India held on to the fifth spot in the latest ICC ODI rankings.

India are on ratings 113 points, the same as fourth placed New Zealand. But the Kiwis are ahead of Mahendra Singh Dhoni's side when the ratings are calculated beyond the decimal point.

New Zealand has retained fourth place in the Reliance Mobile ICC ODI Championship table but has dropped three valuable ratings points despite its 2-1 series win over Bangladesh.

In contrast, Bangladesh's victory by seven wickets in the series opener in Mirpur last week has earned it two ratings points and it now sits on 47 points 25 ahead of 10th placed Ireland.

World Champions Australia (131 pts) maintained their pole position with a comprehensive 13 point lead over second placed South Africa (118 pts). England (116 pts) were placed third.

India maintained a slender lead over arch-rivals Pakistan (110 pts) who are at the sixth spot with Sri Lanka (105 pts) a notch behind.

West Indies (95 pts) occupy the eighth postion with Zimbabwe (16 pts) and Kenya (0 pts) bringing up the rear.
