India move up a spot to fifth

London: India have climbed to fifth in the latest ICC Test rankings released on Tuesday.

India gained three points to move from sixth to fifth, replacing Sri Lanka in the only positional change in the table, an ICC press release said.

Australia continue to lead the table with 129 points. Steve Waugh’s team is followed by South Africa, New Zealand and England. Pakistan and the West Indies occupy seventh and eigth places, respectively.

India’s improvement in Test rankings comes close on the heels of a three-place drop in their ODI ratings. Sourav Ganguly’s men are now in eighth position in the shorter version of the game.

This, despite a string of limited overs successes during the last one year including the brilliant march to the World Cup final where they lost to Australia.

THE STANDINGS

1. Australia (129 pts); 2. South Africa (119); 3. New Zealand (107); 4. England (101); 5. India (94); 6. Sri Lanka (91); 7. Pakistan (90); 8. West Indies (83); 9. Zimbabwe (58); 10. Bangladesh (2).
