South Africa climb to top of ICC one-day rankings for first time in five years

South Africa move to the top of the ICC one-day rankings for the first time in five years following their 2-0 series win over New Zealand.

South Africa have climbed to the top of the International Cricket Council one-day rankings for the first time in five years.

Following their recent 2-0 series win over New Zealand, the Proteas have leapfrogged Australia into top spot.

Back in September 2009, South Africa led the way in the one-day rankings, but fell from the top spot after their first-round exit at the ICC Champions Trophy in their homeland later that month.

India sit third in the standings, while England's ODI side are placed fifth in the list.
