India tops ICC T20I team rankings


India’s 3-0 series sweep over West Indies at home over the past week has taken Rohit Sharma’s side to No. 1 on the ICC T20I team rankings.

India went past England to the top spot, with Pakistan, New Zealand and South Africa rounding off the top five.

India’s lead at the top, though, is a slender one. Across the 39-game period that is under consideration in the current ranking cycle, India and England are tied at 269 rating points.

India are fractionally ahead by virtue of having more points (10,484 to England’s 10,474).
