India still No.3.

India is still ranked No.3, in the Test Championship Table.

According to the ICC spokesman Sami-ul-Hasan, India’s victory against Sri Lanka in the second Test in Kanpur will not affect any change in the Test championship table.

India started the series as No.3 in the rankings and will become No.1, only if they beat Sri Lanka 2-0 in the series.

A 2-0 win will earn India 124 points and thus will put them ahead of South Africa in  the ICC Test Championship Table.

So unless and until India wins the Mumbai Test, India will remain below South Africa.

Don't worry mate. India will hopefully be on top of the world soon.

P.S. - Added "In The Name of Cricket" to my blogroll. Hope to see the same on your blog.

WE COULD HAVE WAITED UNTIL AFTER THE SERIES IS OVER. THE RANKINGS BY THE ICC ALSO SHOULD BE MADE AFTER A SERIES .

Lviss,

ICC has clarified that rankings are updated at the end of a Test series.

This is media perpetrated hype.
