Sep 1, 2014 India managed to regain the top spot on the ICC One-Day International (ODI) cricket rankings after defeating England in the third ODI, taking an unbeatable 2-0 lead  in  the ongoing five-match series. India occupy the top spot of the table with 6485 points from 57 matches at a rating of 114. They are followed closely by South Africa, who sit on the second position with a rating of 113. India have shown consistency in the One-Dayers in the recent past, winning the ODI series against Bangladesh before bouncing back from consecutive defeats in the Test series to win the second and third ODIs with in convincing style. Sri Lanka and Australia stand third and fourth on the tablre respectively. While Sri Lanka completed a 2-1 series victory over sixth-ranked Pakistan in the recent ODI series at home, courtesy a crushing seven-wicket win in the final match at Dambulla, Australia lost to Zimbabwe by three-wickets in the fourth game of the ongoing Triangular series in Zimbabwe. The shuffle in the rankings is expected to have an impact on the preparation of the teams with less than six months left for the 2015 World Cup to begin. India will look to maintain its current momentum and the top spot in the home series against West Indies and during their tour of Australia before beginning their defence of the coveted World title.
