The winning stream of Zimbabwe over Australia in the last ODI proves very vital for Team India, who have now reached top by grabbing first place in ICC ranking for ODI. Although Team India has yet to play two more ODIs in England but keeping in view their recent performance, Indian fans are hoping that India will win both of them. The equation to hold first place in ranking has also become interesting as there is a minor difference of just a marginal 3 points amongst the first four teams and Australia, South Africa and Zimbabwe have yet to play their remaining three matches and the end result becomes crucial.
