Kolkata:

On 23rd September 2009, South Africa dropped to third spot in the ICC one-day rankings as they lost to Sri Lanka by 55 runs in the inaugural match of the Champions Trophy. South Africa's loss turned out to be India's gain as 'Men in Blue' rose back to the number one spot in the ICC one-day rankings.

On 26th September India lost its 1st position after losing to Pakistan in the Champions Trophy.

India skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni, who is serving a two-match ban, remains number one batsman in ODIs, while Yuvraj Singh retains his 7th position.

Sachin at number 8, is the third Indian batsman to figure in top ten.

Gautam Gambhir is on top in the Test, while Sehwag on 4th position. India is Number 1 Test team, while in ODIs India is No. 2 behind Australia.
