The Indian cricket team extended their lead at the top of the ICC Men's T20I Rankings after a historic 2-1 series win over Australia in home conditions. The series win helped the Indian team improve their T20I team ranking by one point to 268 points overall, which is a seven-point lead over their closest rival in England with 261 points.

India chased down the 187-run target in the third T20I to seal a 2-1 series win over Australia in Hyderabad on Sunday. Sixth-placed Australia dropped one point to 250 points overall following their series loss to India, with the reigning T20 World Cup champions still scheduled to play six matches - against West Indies, England and India before they get the chance to defend their trophy at home.

On the other hand, England suffered a close defeat in the fourth T20I against

Pakistan that helped India increase their buffer at the head of proceedings, with Matthew Mott’s team falling to a narrow three-run loss in Karachi.

England will maintain second place in the rankings if they win one of those contests, while South Africa will get the chance to stake their claim when they take on India in a three-match series that commences on Wednesday.

Pakistan are currently tied with South Africa for third place in the team rankings with 258 points, but could rise as high as second by winning the remaining three matches against England.

New Zealand remain in fifth place in the T20I team rankings with a total of 252 points, with Kane Williamson's side next in action just prior to the start of the T20 World Cup when they host Pakistan and Bangladesh for a tri-series on home soil.
