When India and Australia will go head to head in the four-Test series in Pune on Thursday, 23 February, Australia will have a chance to reclaim the top slot. However, to make that happen, it will have to win the series by 3-0 or 4-0.

If India wins one Test, then it will retain its top position and cannot even be overhauled by South Africa, which, in turn, means it will be assured of number-one position at the annual 1 April cut-off date. The side that tops the Test team rankings at the annual cut-off date collects a cash award of $1million, while the side that ends second receives $500K. Third and fourth-ranked sides receive $200K and $100K respectively.
