India’s 5-0 series win over Zimbabwe has helped it strengthen its position as the No 1 ranked team in the ICC One-Day International (ODI) rankings table.

Though the series sweep earned India just one point to help it finish at 123, it now has a lead of nine points over No 2 ranked Australia.

Meanwhile, South Africa and Sri Lanka have swapped places with the Asian side moving into fourth place after gaining three points and the African side slipping to fifth after conceding five.

Indian all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja moved to the top in the list of the ICC Rankings for bowlers.
