India rise to No.4 in the latest ICC Test rankings

In what could be perceived as a significant boost to the Indian Test side, they have moved to No.4 post the annual update in the ICC Test rankings after languishing at No.7 previously. While they haven’t played any Test cricket since their 2-0 defeat to Australia in the 4-match series in January, they have benefitted from the recent slip-ups of England and Pakistan to rise up the rankings.

Earlier, Pakistan were No.3 in the rankings, but their draw in the first Test against minnows Bangladesh has seen them move down to No.6 while England are now fifth courtesy of their failure to secure a series win against the West Indies.  

New Zealand, meanwhile, have risen to No.3 in the rankings, which means that they will go into the upcoming 2-match Test series against England ranked above them.

As far as the top two are concerned, however, there are no changes. South Africa, with 130 rating points, sit comfortably on top while Australia are second with 108 rating points.
