India rise to second in ICC Test rankings

Dubai: Australia`s series-levelling triumph over South Africa in Johannesburg has helped India rise a rung to the second spot in ICC`s latest Test rankings.

India, currently leading a three-Test home series against the West Indies 2-0, were pushed up the ladder by Australia`s thrilling two-wicket win in the Johannesburg Test yesterday.

Michael Clarke`s men chased a record 310-run target to level the series in a nerve-wrecking climax that was interrupted by rain.

The 1-1 result pushed South Africa to the third spot with 116 rating points, a point less than India.

India were the world number one till they were humiliated 0-4 by England in an away series in July-August.

England occupy the top spot with 125 rating points, while Australia are placed fourth with 105 ratings points.

Sri Lanka complete the top-five with 99 points followed by Pakistan (98).
