India have been guaranteed they would retain their No 2 position in the ICC One-Day International (ODI) team rankings at the April 1 cut-off after finishing with 113 points, just one ahead of third-ranked Sri Lanka, to walk away with a prize of $75,000. There was no other change in the table with all sides retaining their positions.
