After attaining a comfortable 8 wickets victory over West Indies in the final test on Tuesday, South Africa has been able to hold on to their top spot in the latest Test ranking of the ICC. With this win the South African team has won the 3 test series by 2-0. The equation for team India has gone from bad to worse. Due to their pathetic recent performance, team India has already slipped down to 7th spot. The way they are playing, it is unlikely that the ranking will improve for a long while.
