27 February, 2013
DUBAI: Team India retains its top spot in ICC ODI rankings with 119 rating points, according to an International Cricket Council release.
England having secured 117 points are placed second in the ODI team rankings, while Australia (116) and South Africa (112) are placed third and fourth.
Team India took an outright lead on top of the one-day table following England's 2-1 victory in the three-match series against New Zealand.
Since India and Australia are not scheduled to play the limited overs format until April 1, 2013 South Africa placed at No 4 in the ICC ODI team rankings is the only team that can try to push India and England down the order as they are scheduled to play a five-match ODI series against Pakistan starting from March 10, 2013.
