Team India has a chance to rise to No. 1 team in One-day international cricket in a year in which they are scheduled to host the ICC men's 50-over World Cup at home. With a convincing victory in the second ODI on January 21 in Raipur, Rohit Sharma's team has already clinched a 2-0 victory over New Zealand in the three-match ODI series.
On Tuesday, January 24, at the Holkar Stadium in Indore, they will try to sweep the Black Caps in the third one-day international. If they win the third ODI, they will surpass both New Zealand and England and move up to No. 1 spot in the men's ICC ODI rankings. After defeating Sri Lanka 3-0 earlier this month, they will be able to complete the whitewash at home for the second time in a row.
Prior to this match, New Zealand, which had 115 rating points, held the top spot. With 111 rating points, India placed fourth, Australia third, England second, and Australia third with 112 rating points. As a result of their eight-wicket loss to India, New Zealand is now in second place with 113 rating points and 3166 total points. England and India are in first and third place, respectively, with 113 rating points each.
Depending on how ODI world champions England fare in the three-match series against South Africa, India are tipped to remain on top for some time. If India can pull off this feat, they will be the number one side in both T20s and ODIs.
The third and final game of the three-match ODI series between India and New Zealand is a dead rubber because India has an unbeatable 2-0 lead. The final round of league games for the Ranji Trophy 2022–23 will also start on that day, incidentally.
