India reclaim No 1 ranking in ODI
India yesterday had reason to cheer. Not only did Mahendra Singh Dhoni's side manage to win the one-day international series against England 3-2, it also reclaimed the No 1 rank in the ICC ODI Championship Table for the first time in just over three years
India, who started the series in third place at 117 ratings points, gained two ratings points to end at 119. England, who had started on 121 ratings points, slipped to 119 ratings points after the series loss, only to see India finish ahead of it by 0.2 when the ratings are calculated beyond the decimal point.
India had become the number-one ranked side after winning the third match of the series on January 19 and then held onto the spot thereafter.
