England dropped to No. 2 on the ICC Men’s ODI Team Rankings as a result of their 3-0 series defeat to Australia, which allowed New Zealand to overtake them.
The 3-0 series defeat by Australia caused England to drop to No. 2 on the ICC Men’s ODI Team Rankings, giving New Zealand the top spot. The current ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup champions suffered a string of losses, and it took just 10 days from winning the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022 to losing in Australia.
According to the most recent ICC ODI rankings, New Zealand has reclaimed the top spot in the list of ODI Team Rankings. Before the series started, England had a comfortable lead with 119 rating points, five more than New Zealand. But after three straight defeats, they lost six points, and with 113, they fell behind New Zealand (114).
Australia received praise for their excellent work as well. They advanced one position, passing Pakistan, who held the position of fourth with 107 rating points, to take it with 112 points. India now has a higher overall score than Australia, who are tied in terms of rating points.
When England travels to South Africa for a three-match series in January 2023, they will have another opportunity to reclaim first place.
