DUBAI: Sri Lanka replaced India to claim second spot in the International Cricket Council (ICC) one-day world rankings on Tuesday following their first series victory as visitors against top-ranked Australia. Sri Lanka earned three rating points with their 2-1 series win in Australia to go one point clear of India and 10 points behind number-one ranked Australia.

However, India will reclaim the number two spot if they manage to clean sweep the five match ODI series against seventh-placed New Zealand, starting Nov. 28.

Australia conceded two rating points following their series defeat but continued to lead the rankings with 128 points.

South Africa and Pakistan retained their positions, fourth and sixth respectively, after the Proteas won the series 3-2.
