Australia slips to lowest rank in 34 years

Team Australia which has been dominating the cricketing fraternity for several decades seems no longer an invincible team. The five-time World cup winner slips to its lowest ranking in the ODIs for the first time in 34 years.

 

 

Team Australia which won the World cup in 2015 and whitewashed South Africa 5-0, had now lost 13 of their 15 ODIs. The team which lost the first 2 ODIs against England need to win the remaining 3 ODIs to climb to fifth place from Sixth ranking.

 

 

After winning the World Cup, Australia had lost three successive bilateral series — to New Zealand, India, and England and exited the Champions Trophy at the group stage.

 

 

England, India and South Africa currently are currently at the top three spots in the ICC One-Day International (ODI) rankings. The last time Australia ranked 6th in the ODIs was way back in 1984.
