Dubai: Apr 2, 2014

Riding on their superb unbeaten run in the ICC World T20 2014 so far, the Indian cricket team toppled Sri Lanka to clinch the top spot in the International Cricket Council (ICC) rankings issued on Wednesday.

“India has moved ahead of Sri Lanka into the No 1 position on the ICC T20I Team Rankings Table,” the ICC said in a statement.

India gained seven ratings points after remaining unbeaten in their group engagements in Bangladesh to finish on 130, bringing them on par with Sri Lanka.

But when ratings were calculated beyond the decimal point, MS Dhoni‘s side found itself ranked higher.

With both India and Sri Lanka through to the semi-finals, both have a chance to either retain or reclaim the No 1 position.

In the other change in the table, West Indies and Australia have swapped positions. West Indies are now ranked fifth with a gain of five ratings points and are now on 115.

Australia, on the other hand, have moved down a place to sixth with a drop of five ratings points to end on 110.

In all, 13 of 16 teams ranked on the rankings table have featured in the tournament.

The tournament carries a total prize money of USD 3 million, with the winning side taking home USD 1.1 million and the runner-up collecting USD 550,000.

In the individual rankings, Virat Kohli has moved up a rung to be third in the latest list for batsmen, while Ravichandran Ashwin has zoomed up 16 places to break into the top-10 at a career-high sixth.

West Indies’ leg-spinner Samuel Badree has moved up a place to replace teammate Sunil Narine as the No 1 ranked bowler in the latest ICC Player Ranking for T20I bowlers.

Badree is currently the third highest wicket-taker in the tournament with 10 scalps from four matches, at an average of nine and an economy rate of 5.62.
