July 9 (CNMSPORTS) - India have overtaken Australia to take second place after clinching their three-match series against England 2-1. The top three sides are now separated by 10 points, while three points separate fourth-ranked England and seventh-ranked West Indies. Pakistan have retained the top position with their tri-series victory.
