Calcutta: They might be out of action for quite sometime in this format of the game, but India managed to hold on to their second position in the ICC T20 rankings issued on Friday.
Both India and third-placed South Africa have 123 points their accounts, but the former just managed to pip the Proteas when ratings were calculated beyond the decimal point.
Sri Lanka continued to lead the chart with 129 points. Pakistan and West Indies occupy the fourth and fifth spot respectively.
But a bit of movement is expected on the table just before the World Twenty20 to be held in Bangladesh from March 16 to April 6 as four of the top eight sides will be seen in action in six matches in the upcoming fortnight.
1. Sri Lanka; 2. India; 3. South Africa; 4. Pakistan; 5. West Indies; 6. Australia; 7. New Zealand; 8. England; 9. Ireland; 10. Bangladesh
