World champions Australia have again become the No.1 men’s team in Test cricket after India lost their place in the latest ICC rankings list.

Pat Cummins’ side had briefly held the top spot after beating India in the World Test Championship final at The Oval in June but Rohit Sharma’s men had regained their place at the summit of the five-day game following the drawn Ashes series.

Both teams had a rating of 118 but Australia, who’ve taken the current home series against Pakistan by winning the first two Tests, have slid ahead by one point, 118-117, following the Indians’ drawn two-Test series in South Africa.

It spells the end of a remarkable triple reign for Sharma’s team, who last September became only the second international men’s outfit to be No.1 in all three formats – Tests, ODIs and T20Is.

India, rated at 121, are still No.1 in the ODI list, with Australia second (117) despite Cummins’ team having dethroned the hosts as world champions in November.

The Aussies are only fifth in the T20 rankings (250 points) with India top on 265 ahead of world champions England (256).

In the women’s rankings, Australia remain well ahead of their pursuers in both the ODI and T20I categories.

England, who trail 130-165 in the ODI rankings and 282-297 in T20Is, are their nearest chasers.

Tahlia McGrath remains the No.1 T20 batter in the world, ahead of her teammate Beth Mooney, while England spinner Sophie Ecclestone is the best bowler in both the white-ball categories with her teammate Nat Sciver-Brunt the leading ODI batter.

The New Year has also begun with New Zealand’s Kane Williamson, Pakistan’s Babar Azam and India’s Suryakumar Yadav as the No.1 batters in men’s Tests, ODIs and T20Is respectively.

Indian spinner Ravichandran Ashwin leads the Test bowling rankings, with South Africa’s Keshav Maharaj heading the ODIs’ list and England’s Adil Rashid on top in T20Is.
