India vs Australia 2018: Possible results and their impact on Test Ranking

Impact of result on Test Ranking
India vs Australia

All the talk of the town is about India’s tour of Australia. The 2 big guns of the cricketing world are set to go head to head. This time, it’s Australia that’s playing the host. The Border-Gavaskar Trophy, currently held by India, will be on the line yet again. The result of the series will have a massive impact on the Test Ranking.

Team India is currently the top-ranked side in ICC Rankings. Virat Kohli & Co. have 116 rating points in their credit. On the other hand, Australia occupies the 5th spot with 102 points. The hosts have a chance to climb up the rankings even if the series is drawn. India will hold on to the top spot unless they lose all the 4 Test matches. In that case, Australia will move to the top.

India’s top spot will remain intact in most cases but a loss of any kind would see them dropping in terms of rating points. Even though the visitors are being termed as the favorites to win, it’s going to be tough in the Australian conditions. Australia would hope to get back to winning ways after a string of losses of late.
