ICC Rankings Team India No.1 : After the crushing defeat at the hands of England in the semi-finals of the T20 World Cup 2022, Team India is now preparing for its next mission. Indian team is going to play T20 series with New Zealand. The special thing is that New Zealand also got defeated in the semi-finals and the dream of winning the World Cup for both the teams remained incomplete. Now again the teams are preparing to clash in their second series. The star players of the Indian team are resting from this series, that is, they are not playing. At the same time, the command has been handed over to Hardik Pandya. On the other hand, if we talk about New Zealand, the team is taking the field with full strength and a strong team, in such a situation, this series is not going to be easy for Team India. On the other hand, if Team India gets defeated in this series, then its number one crown will also be in trouble.
Team India number one in ICC rankings
Team India is currently occupying the number one position in ICC’s T20. No one has been able to beat him for a long time, it is another matter that Team India has neither won the ICC trophy nor captured the Asia Cup title, but Team India is winning the rest of the series continuously and the number Sitting on the chair of the forest. But now the world champion team England seems to be trying to challenge the Indian team. Talking about the rating points of Team India, it is 268. At the same time, the England team has now reached the second number, its points have now increased to 265. That means England is now only three points away from Team India. At number three is Pakistan’s team, which was defeated by England by five wickets in the final. He has 258 rating points. Pakistan team is far behind. But England team can become a threat to India. Let us now tell you how the number one crown of Team India can be saved.
The chair will be snatched only if Team India is cleared in the series
Team India is going to play three T20 matches series from New Zealand. New Zealand currently has 253 rating points. That means New Zealand will not be able to challenge India, at least in terms of rankings. If Team India loses all the three matches of this T20 series, then its number one crown will be snatched away, but if the Indian team wins even one match then India will still be number one. Even if the Indian team wins two matches and captures the series, India will remain number one. That is, if Team India has a clean sweep in the series, then only India will be in danger and England will become the number one team. The special thing is that England does not have to play a single T20 match soon. Means his points will not increase, when Team India loses then his points will definitely decrease, this is a big problem. But it should be expected that under the captaincy of Hardik Pandya, the Indian team will not only be able to retain its number one position, but will also return to the country after winning the series and the players will perform better.
