India held on to their No 1 ranking in One-Day Internationals (ODIs) despite losing the fifth ODI against England, after South Africa defeated Australia by six wickets in the finals of the Zimbabwe Triangular Series 2014. Both India and South Africa, are tied at 113 points, but India lead when the ratings are calculated beyond the decimal point. India became the No 1 team on 30 August after it won the third ODI against England at Nottingham.

In the future, India will play West Indies at home in a five-match ODI series, South Africa will travel to New Zealand for a three-match ODI series, while Australia will face Pakistan in a three-match ODI series in United Arab Emirates.
