In the cricket rankings, New Zealand have replaced reigning world champions England as the No. 1-ranked side in the One-day International rankings.
However, England continue to consolidate their position at the top of the T-20 International table.
New Zealand gained three ranking points after beating Bangladesh 3-0 in their only ODI series last year to move two slots in the ICC Men’s ODI team Rankings with an aggregate of 121.
Australia are second with 118 points, while India and England are on 115, the former ahead on decimal points.
The West Indies have overtaken Sri Lanka to ninth position.
However, England remain the top-ranked side in the ICC Men’s T-20 International Team Rankings, extending their lead over India to five points.
New Zealand have also gained in the annual T-20 update, moving up from fifth to third after series wins over the West Indies, Pakistan, Australia and Bangladesh.
Australia have moved the other way, down from third to fifth. (AIR)
