New Delhi:

A clinical India moved into third position in the ICC ODI rankings after producing a world champion-like performance against England which has helped it to wrap up the series 5-0.

Mahendra Singh Dhoni's side had started the series in fifth position with 112 ratings points and after winning all the five ODIs, it has moved into third position on 118 ratings points.

In a sharp contrast, Alastair Cook's side has slipped from fourth position to fifth after dropping from 112 ratings points to 106. England now lead sixth-placed Pakistan by just five ratings points whose five-ODI series against Sri Lanka start in Dubai on 11 November.

However, India will slip to fourth if South Africa win the third and last ODI against Australia in Durban on Friday. A South Africa win will put Hashim Amla's side in second place on 120 ratings points, one ratings point ahead of India, while in case of Australia's victory the Proteas will stay in fourth position but will drop to 115 ratings points.

Meanwhile, Zimbabwe's historic victory over New Zealand in Bulawayo on Tuesday has earned them three ratings points. Zimbabwe, which successfully chased a 329-run target to win by one wicket, have moved up to 47 ratings points.

On the contrary, New Zealand have dropped three ratings points and are now on 87 ratings points - nine ratings points ahead of the West Indies.
