India looses top spot in ICC ODI rankings

India lost its number one spot on 19 October 2017 in International Cricket Council (ICC) One Day International (ODI) rankings to South Africa. South Africa's 104-run win over Bangladesh in the second ODI in Paarl pushed it to the top spot.

India had claimed the top rank in the ICC rankings as a result of its 4-1 win over Australia.

While India and South Africa have equal 120 points against their name, India is placed second on the basis of decimal points.

However, India has a chance to regain its top spot as it plays against New Zealand in a three-match ODI series scheduled to begin from 22 October 2017 in Mumbai.
