India lose top ODI spot

The Indian cricket team is no longer the No 1 One Day International (ODI) team in the world. It lost its top ranking after losing a match to New Zealand earlier this week. India has been replaced by Australia as the No 1 ODI team in the world.

The Indian team is currently playing a 5 match ODI series in New Zealand against the host country. They have lost the first two matches and if they get beaten third time around, India will lose the series.

India claimed the No 1 ODI rank in January 2013. If they pull off a series victory against New Zealand by winning the next three matches, they may become No 1 again.
