India have risen to second in the International Cricket Council (ICC) rankings despite losing 1-2 to Australia on Sunday in their latest Test series.
India had entered the series in fourth place, just behind South Africa and Sri Lanka, but South Africa’s 2-1 series win over eighth-placed West Indies earlier this month relegated it to fourth position and put Sri Lanka second, a fraction of a ratings point ahead of India in third spot.
Following their impressive 72-run victory in the third Test in Perth and the drawn match just finished in Adelaide, India has moved ahead of Sri Lanka and now sit in second place on 111 ratings points, two ahead of its south Asia rival and three in front of the Proteas.
