India secured the top spot in the ICC ODI rankings after their 3-0 sweep against New Zealand. This achievement put them at the top of the charts in both white-ball formats, heading into the ODI World Cup set to take place later in the year. England, who held the top spot just three days prior, dropped to second place, with New Zealand falling to fourth. If England wins their upcoming ODI series against South Africa 3-0, they will surpass India as the top team in the ODI rankings.
