With historic series win, India claim No.1 spot in ODI rankings

India climbed to the top of the ICC ODI scores after their 73-run win over South Africa in Port Elizabeth in the 5th ODI on Tuesday.
After victories in Durban (by six wickets), Centurion (by 9 wickets) and Cape Town (by 124 runs), India have been crushed on Saturday in a rain-hit fourth ODI, however stormed again to say the collection with at Port Elizabeth and with that finished their first ever bilateral ODI collection win in South Africa.

This meant the Indian staff ascended to the top spot with 122 points as SA slipped from 121 to 118 points. India had started the collection with 119 points, two in the back of South Africa, and needed a minimum of 4 wins to realize a spot in the scores.


No Indian men's side since its first excursion in South Africa again in 1992, has ever gained a sequence across any format. They did win a one-off T20 match in 2006 -- their first ever shortest format but it surely used to be a single match match. The staff under Kohli completed which neither among Mohammed Azharuddin, Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly, Rahul Dravid or Mahendra Singh Dhioni may just ever accomplish -- win a full fledged collection in the Rainbow Nation.


After a sequence of low rankings, Rohit Sharma came excellent when it ultimately mattered as he scored 115 in India's decent overall of 274 for 7 on a gradual St Georege's Park wicket.


South Africa did publish a battle prior to wrist spinners Kuldeep Yadav (4/57 in 10 overs) and Yuzvendra Chahal (2/43 in 9.2 overs) found their bearings after an extraordinary off-day to polish off the lower-order in a few minutes as the home staff have been shot out for 201 in 42.2 overs
