New Zealand could slip in ODI rankings in series against Sri Lanka

New Zealand face the prospect of slipping down the MRF Tyres ICC Men’s ODI Team Rankingsin their upcoming three-match home series against Sri Lanka starting on Thursday.

Having leapfrogged South Africa to third position in the Test rankings only last week with a 1-0 series win over Sri Lanka, they could now see South Africa overtake them to third place in the ODI table if New Zealand are unable to win all three matches against Sri Lanka.

New Zealand, currently ranked third with 112 points, will slip to 111 points and behind South Africa on decimal points if they win by a margin of 2-1 while a 3-0 win will lift them to 113 points. Sri Lanka will gain four points in the scenario of blanking the opposition but will remain 10 points adrift of seventh-placed Bangladesh even with such a huge verdict.
