South Africa have retained the top spot in the MRF Tyres ICC ODI Team Rankings after completing a 3-0 victory over Bangladesh in a home series that ended on Sunday.
The win in East London has lifted South Africa to 121 points while India’s loss to New Zealand in the opening match of their three-ODI series in Mumbai has kept them two points behind South Africa at 119 points.
South Africa had led India on decimal points with both sides on 120 points ahead of their Sunday’s engagements. But after today’s results, India can’t overtake South Africa in their ongoing series. India can at best reach 120 points, even if they win both their remaining matches against New Zealand.
India are currently ranked number one in the MRF Tyres ICC Test Team Rankings.
