Dubai: ICC T20 International rankings got released today and it was nothing good for the Indian team as they dropped six points to slip to the fourth spot.
The Virat Kohli-led side is now on 118 points, three points behind ICC World Twenty20 2009 winner Pakistan, which has joined second-placed England on 121 points after gaining five points.
But Pakistan is ranked behind the ICC World Twenty20 2010 winner by a fraction of a point. England have benefitted significantly to rise three places after gaining seven points to now sit on 121 points. Eoin Morgan’s side is four points behind table-topper New Zealand, which is on 125 points after dropping two points.
South Africa has slipped two places to fifth ranking after conceding six points, but is one point ahead of Australia. Australia has swapped places with reigning ICC World Twenty20 champions, the West Indies, which is 14 points ahead of 2014 winner and eighth-ranked Sri Lanka (95 points, down by four).
