India rise to second spot in Test ranking

India have risen to No 2 position in the Test rankings, thanks to South Africa losing the second Test against Australia.

South Africa thus slipped to third on the Reliance ICC Test Championship table following its drawn home series against Australia.

The Proteas were ranked second but the 1-1 series result against the lower ranked Australia meant it lost one ratings point to 116 and fell below India, who are at 117 rating points.

England held on to the No 1 spot, a good eight points ahead of India at 125 rating points.

Australia now sits 11 rating points behind South Africa, in fourth place.
