Dubai:

India continued to dominate the ICC Test Championship table, holding on to the top spot in the latest rankings issued on Friday despite losing a rating point after the drawn three-match series against South Africa.

India lead South Africa by 11 ratings with 128 ratings points, the ICC said in a statement here.

Third-placed England have narrowed the gap with South Africa after winning the Ashes 3-1. England, which entered the Ashes series on 112 ratings points, have jumped to 115 ratings points and Andrew Strauss's side now trails Graeme Smith's men by just two ratings points.

The Proteas, which started against India on 116 ratings points, have gained one ratings point and moved to 117 ratings points following the one-all draw against India.

For Australia, the news is not so good and their first Ashes defeat in 24 years on home soil has resulted in a drop to fifth on the table.

The defeat has cost Australia three ratings points, putting them two points behind Sri Lanka on 107.
