Dubai, June 25: India have dropped 2 points but retained 2nd position in the latest ICC ODI Team Rankings after their 1-2 series loss to Bangladesh yesterday.

Bangladesh moved up 1 place to 7th after their historic series victory over India. The 3-match rubber completed on Wednesday (June 24) at Sher-e-Bangla Stadium in Mirpur.

The triumph at home has put Bangladesh on 93 ratings points - five behind 6th-ranked England and five ahead of eighth-ranked West Indies.

With England, plus seven next highest-ranked sides as on 30 September 2015 to qualify for the ICC Champions Trophy 2017, Bangladesh now look set to qualify ahead of the West Indies, which has no One-Day International (ODI) series planned until the cut-off date, and eighth-ranked West Indies, which plays Sri Lanka in a five-ODI series next month.

Bangladesh had entered the series in 8th position on 88 points, fraction of a point behind the West Indies.

In contrast, 2-1 defeat means India have dropped from 117 to 115 but has still retained his second position on the ODI table.

However, the series result means only 28 points separate second-ranked India from ninth-ranked Pakistan. World champions Australia lead the field and is sitting pretty on 129 points.
