The ICC has issued a statement regarding the Indian team being shown number one in the ICC Test rankings a day before and then being removed shortly after. The International Cricket Council (ICC) on Wednesday showed India number one in the men’s Test team rankings, while Australia was demoted to number two. However, shortly afterwards he made Australia number one again. He was criticized a lot for this.
Now the ICC has apologized for the technical glitch. Hours after India climbed to the ‘top’ of the Test rankings, the ICC released another list that showed Rohit Sharma’s team back at No.2. It gave an impression that Rohit’s men had regained the top spot for a while after their innings and 132-run win over the Pat Cummins-led Australia in Nagpur.
The ICC acknowledged the mistake and said in a statement that the ICC accepts that on February 15, 2023, India was shown as the No. 1 Test on the ICC website due to a technical glitch for a short period of time. The statement said – We apologize for any inconvenience. Australia remain at the top of the ICC Test Team Rankings following the latest update following the conclusion of Zimbabwe’s two-match series against the West Indies.
According to the statement, for now Australia will remain on top. Australia are the No. 1 ranked team with 126 rating points, up 11 from India’s 115, in the second Test against India in Delhi from Friday January 17. Australia are also in the running for a place in the final of the ICC World Test Championship 2021-23, which will be played at The Oval in London from June 7 to 11.
