India’s back-to-back title triumphs has helped the world champion team retain its top position in the ICC ODI rankings following the annual update of the list announced on Friday. India, which recently won the ICC Champions Trophy, has been in the number one position since February 2013, when it beat England 3-2 at home to regain the top place.

The annual update was released after the conclusion of the tri-series, featuring the hosts, India and Sri Lanka. India won the tri-series after beating Sri Lanka by one wicket in a thrilling final on Thursday at Port of Spain.

At the June ICC board meeting, the ICC board agreed to change the ODI rankings period from three years to four years to ensure that all ODIs played over the four-year cycle between ICC Cricket World Cups count towards a team’s ranking at the next event.

The ICC board also decided that the annual update to the Test, ODI and T20I rankings should now take place on May 1 each year, rather than August 1, to better align with the current international calendar. This change has been incorporated in the latest update, and has been backdated to May 1, 2013, a statement from the world body said.
