ICC Test ranking: India jumps to 4th position
Well this is certainly a pleasant news for the Indian cricket team as they have moved to No. 4 position, post the annual update in the ICC Test rankings after struggling at No. 7 position previously.

This is a significant upward movement as they haven't played any Test cricket since their 2-0 defeat to Australia in the 4-match series in January. But the team India have benefited from the recent slip-ups of England and Pakistan to rise up the rankings.

Pakistan has dropped to number 6 position in ICC Test ranking after the annual update; while New Zealand is firmly standing at position three now. It is important to note that earlier, Pakistan were at No. 3 spot in the rankings, but their draw in the first Test against minnows Bangladesh has pushed them down to No. 6 spot. While England are now fifth courtesy of their failure to secure a series win against the West Indies.

New Zealand, while holding No. 3 position in the ranking, will go into the upcoming 2-match Test series against England, which ranked above them.

However, as far as the top two slots are concerned, there are no changes. South Africa, with 130 points, are comfortably holding on top position whereas Australia are second with 108 rating points.
