Dubai: India can pip South Africa to second position in the ICC Test rankings if they manage to win their ongoing home series against the West Indies 3-0 and provided Graeme Smith’s side loses the upcoming two-Test rubber against Australia.

South Africa trails top-ranked England by seven ratings points but leads third-ranked India by just one rating point. Australia is fourth on 104 ratings points.

The maximum third-ranked India can rise from its series against the West Indies is to 119 ratings points which it can only achieve if it wins all the three Test matches. A 2-0 series win will India on 118 ratings points while a 1-0 or 2-1 series win will keep them on 117 ratings points.

A 0-1 series loss against Australia will leave South Africa on 112 ratings points while in case of a 0-2 series defeat, the Proteas will join Australia on 110 ratings points but will be ranked above Michael Clarke’s side when the ratings are calculated beyond the decimal point. (PTI)
