ICC ODI Rankings: Shikhar Dhawan-led India could return to the top of the pile in the ICC ODI Rankings as they prepare to face NewZealand. The Kane Williamson-led Kiwis are the current leaders, having leapfrogged England to the top of the pile. However, should the Men in Blue reign supreme in the upcoming three-match series, India will be the World No.1 ranked side in ODIs.

As per the latest ICC Rankings, England have dropped a spot following their 3-0 drubbing by Australia. The result sees Kane Williamson’s NewZealand side go top, with only 2 points separating the top 4 sides. A series win against India will keep the Kiwis atop the standings with New Zealand set to face the Men in Blue in three ODIs at home starting on Friday.

However, Shikhar Dhawan’s Men in Blue will also have an opportunity to become the numero Uno side in the world. It will be a considerable achievement given that India have largely played with a second string this year. India trail NewZealand by two points and given the dynamics will need a 3-0 win to become the World No.1 ranked side.
