IND vs NZ LIVE: India vs NewZealand ODI Series ‘BATTLE for No. 1’, Rohit Sharma led team need to win all 3 to replace Kiwis as new World No. 1 ODI TEAM in ICC Rankings: Follow IND vs SL LIVE

Team India are on the brink of creating history. Rohit Sharma & Co are just two series away from becoming World No 1 across all three formats of the game in ICC Rankings. India are already ranked No 1 in T20Is. If India beat NewZealand 3-0 at home in the ODI series, India will dethrone Kiwis for the World No 1 spot. Furthermore, India can also become World No 1 side in Tests if they claim the 4-match Test series 1-0 or 3-1. 

After the 3rd ODI against SriLanka, India will take on NewZealand in a three-match ODI series. Currently, ranked 4th, Team India have 109 rating points. But if Rohit Sharma & Co beat SriLanka in the final match and clean sweep NewZealand 3-0 in their next series, India will get to World No 1 rank in ODIs. They can surpass the Kiwis for the top spot in ODI rankings. However, the task won’t be that easy as the Kiwis recently defeated Pakistan in an ODI series.
