Team India of cricket has always been among the top teams in all the formats and has always made the country proud. As an exception, the team did not perform as per expectation as England lead the five test series by 4-1 against India.
Even after results of the latest India vs England test series, India has managed to stay on the top of the test rankings board.
As per the latest rankings released by the International Cricket Council on Tuesday after the culmination of the fifth and the final Test between the two teams at Oval, India dropped down from 125 points to 115 points, still maintaining a nine-point lead over South Africa, who were placed at the 2nd position in the rankings with 106 points.
England, who began the 5-Test series at the fifth position with 97 points, gained 8 points and climbed to the 4th position in the Rankings.
India lost the final Test against England by 118 runs as they were bowled out for 345 while chasing a mammoth total of 464.
In a press conference held after the 5th test between India and England was over, skipper Virat Kohli said that India does not need to change too many things, despite the results.
"We understand why this series has gone the way it has and we don’t see a massive-massive portion that we need to correct. If you are competing in every game, and you have an upper hand in every game at some stage or the other, you are doing something right," Kohli said.
