ICC Test Team Rankings post Sri Lanka's clean sweep against South Africa
July 24 (CRICKETNMORE) - Sri Lanka and South Africa have moved in opposite directions in the latest ICC Test Team Rankings following the home side’s 2-0 series win.
Second-ranked South Africa have joined Australia on 106 points after conceding six points, while sixth-ranked Sri Lanka have joined England on 97 points after collecting six points.
However, South Africa is ranked above Australia and Sri Lanka is ranked below England, when the points are calculated beyond the decimal point.
South Africa’s dip means India will retain their No.1 ranking irrespective of how their five-Test series against England pans out, but England can rise to as high as second if they make a clean sweep of the series. The series starts at Edgbaston on 1 August.
