England moves up to third in ICC Test Rankings
DUBAI: The 2-0 series triumph over New Zealand has propelled England to the third spot in the ICC Test Rankings, just one point behind second-placed India.
With Australia currently 30 points clear at the top of the table, there is no danger of it being caught any time soon.
However, the ladder is a lot more congested further down with just five points separating India in second position and Sri Lanka in fifth.
England could have ended this series in second position had it won all three Tests but it can still wind up its summer ahead of India if it outperforms South Africa and India does not win its Test series in Sri Lanka.
However, if South Africa edges the four-match series it could be the one to go into second depending on how the Sri Lanka-India series pans out.
