Ind vs Eng: England can grab No. 1 spot

first_imgThe four-Test series between India and England is expected to be an explosive series and there will be more at stake than just the series trophy.According to the International Cricket Council (ICC), England will go to the top of the Test Championship table if Andrew Strauss and Co manage to beat MS Dhoni’s men by a margin of two Tests or more.Although currently placed third in the rankings, Strauss’s team will leapfrog South Africa and current No. 1 India to take pole position if they clinch the series 3-1 or 2-0.The first Test, which starts at Lord’s on July 21, will be the 2,000th in the history of the game and the 100th between England and India.According to the latest table, following the annual update, England will lead the table by three ratings points if they win the series by two clear matches.In that scenario, India would hold on to second position with South Africa slipping to third. If the home team was to sweep the series 4-0, India would drop to third place.A 1-0 or 2-1 series win for England will put their rating level with India’s, but India will still be top by a fraction of a point. A drawn series (0-0, 1-1 or 2-2) will ensure India stay six points clear at the top but will see England edging ahead of South Africa into second position.An India series win will see them stretch their lead at the top of the table, leaving England lying in third place.advertisementThe ICC annual update has led to no changes in the rankings but India’s lead over South Africa has been trimmed from nine points to seven.We want to be No. 1: Alastair CookEngland’s ODI captain, Alastair Cook, has said his team wants to beat India and assume the number one position in the Test rankings.”It has been a good couple of months and to win the series is very pleasing. We have certainly got a lot to prove. We know as an English side, we know that we have to win. We have made a step in the right direction,” Cook said on ICC’s Cricket World radio show.”It is going to be a great summer, we need to go back to Test mode. We want to world number one in the ICC Test Championship.”There is nothing better than playing against the current world number one, to show that we can reach there. They have got some players who will go down as all-time greats. But I am very confident that if we play well, we will be a hard side to beat,” Cook said.last_img read more
