India still lead the ICC World Test Championship, a league comprising
six series played by each of the top nine test sides, with Australia

The Black Caps are ranked third in one-day internationals, and sixth in Twenty20 cricket.
The Australians moved to the top of the T20 rankings for the first time since they were introduced in 2011.
The Aussies have replaced Pakistan, who had occupied the top spot for 27 months. The English team are second, with India third.
