Dubai, Jan 10: Placed third in the ICC ODI team rankings, Team India needs to register a 5-0 whitewash against England to regain their No 1 ranking in ODIs.

India (117) are currently trailing by 4 rating points, while England and South Africa have secured 121 points and are placed first and second respectively.

India need 5-0 win to regain No 1 spot

England on the other hand would also like to continue their momentum having won the Test series in India after 28 years and continue to dominate the ICC team rankings.

South Africa, playing New Zealand in a three-match ODI series starting 19 Jan would also look forward to win the series and aim for the No 1 spot.

South Africa can look forward to be at the top if India wins the series and fails to make it 5-0 as well.

Since the difference is just a fraction of a point, England could retain the No 1 ranking if it registers a series win against India.
