Sri Lanka's 3-0 win over Australia in the home series helped India climb to the top spot in latest ICC Test rankings.

The Indian cricket team climbed to No. 1 spot in the latest International Cricket Council (ICC) Test rankings after Sri Lanka blanked Australia 3-0 in the home series on Wednesday (August 17).

Sri Lanka whitewashed the three-match Test series against the No. 1 ranked Australian side with a 163-run victory on the fifth and final day of the third Test. Consequently, the visitors slipped to the third spot with 108 rating points, four behind India's 112.

To retain the No.1 rank, though, India will now have to win the final Test of their ongoing four-match Test series in West Indies, which begins in Port of Spain on Thursday (August 18). Their failure to win the fourth Test will propel Pakistan to the top spot for the first time.

If India win, they will finish on 112 points - one ahead of Pakistan - but slip to 110 points if the Test is drawn. In case the West Indies earn a consolation win, India will slip to fourth place with 108 rating points.

Pakistan, who won the fourth and final Test against hosts England at The Oval last week to level the series 2-2, jumped to the second spot with 111 ranking points.

England are placed fourth in the table with 108 rating points while Sri Lanka gained ten points to pip South Africa and climb to the sixth spot.
