India enter ICC World T20 as number one ranked side

DUBAI: India on Monday sealed the numero uno spot in the ICC Twenty20 rankings after Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s side won the Asia Cup in Mirpur and will now enter the World T20 as the top team.
India clinched the Asia Cup trophy after beating hosts Bangladesh by eight wickets in Mirpur last night and strengthened their reputation as a strong title contender for the upcoming ICC World Twenty20.
In Johannesburg, Australia had chased down South Africa’s 204 to level the three-match T20 series 1-1 on Sunday. But irrespective of which side now wins the series in Cape Town on Wednesday, it will not be enough to dislodge India from the top pedestal.
