DUBAI, July 11: India can reclaim the top spot in the International Cricket Council ODI rankings if it blanks England 3-0 in the three-match series beginning on July 12.
England and India, currently ranked first and second respectively, play the first match of their upcoming series in Nottingham on Thursday, in what will
kick off a month-long extravaganza of One-Day Internationals featuring 10 sides, spread across four continents.
India, who had beaten England 2-1 in the Twenty20 International series, had conceded the top ranking to England at the annual update on May 2 but it will get a chance to claim back the spot.
But for that, they will have to blank their opponents 3-0. England, on the other hand, will run up a lead of 10 points at the top of the table if they win by the same margin, the ICC said in a release. (PTI)
