India defeats Australia in T20 series, passes WI in latest T20 rankings

The West Indies cricket team has officially lost their top spot in the ICC T20 world rankings, after India triumphantly swept Australia 3 to 0 in their 3-match series this past Sunday.

India now has 120 rating points, just two more than the West Indies, currently ranking second.

India have hit top form in the T20 format ahead of the World T20 to be held at home in March-April. They had famously won the inaugural World T20 in South Africa in 2007.  The West Indies won the tournament in 2012.

England (117 rating points) are fourth in the rankings ahead of New Zealand (116), South Africa (115), Pakistan (113) and Australia (110). Afghanistan (80) and Scotland (66) round up the top-10.
