India moved to Second Spot in ICC Test Rankings

Jul 8, 2013 19:06 IST

As per the latest ICC Test rankings issued on 8 July 2013, India moved to second spot while South Africa led the ranking. England was placed at third position. South Africa gained seven rating points making its tally to 135 points. India scored 116 points.
Although England won its last two test series against India it was placed below India in ranking due to its less consistent performances in other recent series particularly against Pakistan, New Zealand and South Africa. England needs to win by a margin of 3-0 in the upcoming Ashes series against Australia to get the second position.

The annual ICC test ranking ensures that it continues to reflect recent form of all the Cricket teams, with past results being cast off. The recent ICC Board meeting decided that the annual update to the Test, ODI and T20I rankings would now be finalised on 1 May 1 each year instead of 1 August  because it aligns better with the current international calendar.
