Dubai, Sep 1 : World champions India were confirmed as the No.1 ranked side in the International Cricket Council (ICC) ODI team rankings Monday following Zimbabwe's three-wicket victory over Australia in a triangular series match in Harare Sunday.
India had joined Australia on top of the table after winning the third ODI in Nottingham, Aug 30, at 114 ratings points, but took sole possession at the coveted No.1 spot after Zimbabwe recorded their first victory over Australia in 31 years.
This result meant Australia have dropped three ratings points and slipped behind South Africa and Sri Lanka into fourth position on 111 ratings points.
South Africa, following victories over Australia and Zimbabwe, are sitting in second spot on 113 ratings points, while Sri Lanka also have 111 ratings points but are ranked above Australia in third position by a fraction of a point.
