Calcutta: India, who are now placed at the second spot of the Reliance Mobile ICC ODI Team rankings, may reclaim the top spot provided England overcome Australia in the first semi-final of the Champions Trophy on Friday.
India have twice enjoyed brief stints at the top in the past one month.
Australia displaced South Africa as the No. 1 team courtesy their last-ball win against Pakistan on Wednesday. Defeat would drop Ricky Pontings side to 124 ratings points and behind Mahendra Singh Dhonis side when ratings are calculated beyond the decimal point. The Proteas have slipped to the third spot.
