SA reclaim No. 1 ODI rank; India 3rd

Dubai, Oct 28: South Africa have reclaimed the number one ranking on the ICC ODI Team Rankings following the conclusion of their series against New Zealand in New Zealand. India are third behind Australia.

South Africa had entered the three-match ODI series trailing Australia by one ratings point. They moved to the top of the table following its 72 runs victory in the second ODI in Mount Maunganui on Friday, 24 October.

And though the third and final ODI of the series in Hamilton on Monday was washed-out, the results in Mount Maunganui were enough to ensure the Proteas finish the series on top of the tree, ICC said today.

This is the first time in five years that South Africa has surged to the top of the ODI team table. They last enjoyed the number-one position in September 2009, before losing the status to Australia following its first round elimination from the ICC Champions Trophy 2009.
