ICC Rankings: A series of three ODIs is being played between India and New Zealand. Earlier, the Indian team has defeated New Zealand 1.0 in the T20 International series and now the ODIs are on. Although the Indian team has lost the first match of the series by seven wickets and is trailing in the series. But two more matches yet to played. If Team India wins both the remaining matches, then not only will they win the series, but will also become the number one team in ODI cricket. But the way New Zealand has performed in the first match, it is clear that this task is not as easy as it seems.
Team India will have to win both the remaining ODIs against New Zealand
Talking about the ICC ODI rankings, at present the New Zealand team is occupying the number one position. He has a rating of 114. After this, England team is at number two, which has 113 rating. That is, the difference between first and second place is very less. After this, if we talk about number three, then Team India is occupied here with 112 ratings. If the Indian team defeats New Zealand in the second ODI from here, then the New Zealand team will directly reach number three and Team India will occupy number two, while England will occupy number one.
After this, if Team India also succeeds in winning the third and last match of the series, then India’s rating will be 115 and India will be occupied at number one. At the same time, England will come at number two and Australia at number three with 113 ratings. The New Zealand team will directly slip to the fourth position. But if Team India loses even a single match from here, the Indian team will remain at number three and New Zealand team will not only win the series but will also retain the number one position.
T20 International’s number one team is
Talking about T20 International, Team India has already occupied the number one position here. He has a rating of 268, which is the highest. There is no one even around the Indian team here, because England is at number two and its rating is 265. That is, there is no threat to the Indian team here at the moment. On the other hand, if we talk about Tests, here the rating of the Australian team is 128 and this team is number one, Team India’s rating is 114, which is at number two. Now it has to be seen whether the Indian team is able to defeat New Zealand in the remaining two ODIs or not. But these two matches will be very interesting, it seems almost certain.
