Dubai [UAE], Feb 3 (ANI): New Zealand have slipped to fourth place in the International Cricket Council (ICC) ODI team rankings following their 35-run defeat against India in the fifth one-day international in Wellington.
The Black Caps have slipped behind South Africa to fourth place in the ODI rankings after their 4-1 series loss to India.
New Zealand are now on 111 points, the same as South Africa but behind on decimal points, even as second-placed India have gained one point to reach the 122 mark. India have bridged the gap with England who are leading the rankings table with 126 points.
India and New Zealand would have remained on their pre-series tally of 121 and 113 points, respectively, had the home side pulled off a victory in the last match in Wellington on Sunday for a 3-2 series result.
Pakistan, who lost a close series to South Africa 3-2 last week, are in fifth position with 102 points while Australia are at sixth place with 100 points. (ANI)
