Australia reclaimed number-one position in ICC ODI Rankings

Australia has reclaimed top spot in the ICC ODI Rankings after going 6-0 up with one match to play in the ODI series in England.

Australia Cricket TeamRicky Ponting's side beat England by 111 runs at Trent Bridge on Thursday and in the process has moved ahead of South Africa by a fraction of a decimal ratings point. Australia wants to win the one remaining ODI in the Natwest series 2009 to stay top and thus head into the ICC Champions Trophy as the number-one-ranked one-day side in the world. An England win in the 7th ODI of the series would relegate Australia back down to 3rd place.

As a result of Australia's rise, India drops to 3rd position while England stays in 7th position, three ratings points behind New Zealand in 6th. The ICC Champions Trophy 2009 gets underway in South Africa on 22 September and with just a single ratings point separating Australia in 1st position from India in third place, it looks like a rankings battle is on the cards over the next couple of weeks.
