England slip down in ODI Rankings: Details here
England have slipped down to the second spot in the ICC ODI team rankings following a 0-3 defeat against Australia. As the Three Lions are no more at the top, New Zealand have advanced to the numero uno position. England started the series at 119 rating points, five clear of the Black Caps. The clean sweep cost them six points. Here are further details.
Why does this story matter?
- The Brits clinched the ICC T20 World Cup 2022 title earlier this month.
- However, they could not turn up in the ODI series and lost all three games comprehensively.
- Meanwhile, Australia, with 112 rating points, have displaced Pakistan (107) in the fourth place.
- While third-placed India also have 112 rating points, they are ahead of Australia in terms of overall points.
Can England reclaim their throne?
Meanwhile, The Three Lions will have a chance to reclaim the top position when they face South Africa in a three-match ODI series away from home in January 2023. Notably, England will head into the next year's ODI World Cup as defending champions.
