Especially the health of Team India can be greatly affected, if the Indian team loses the first test, but if Team India wins, then even after this it will remain on the number one position.

Team India occupies the number one position in ICC Test rankings.

If we talk about the current ICC Test rankings, Team India is occupying the number one position with a rating of 118. At the same time, the rating of Australian team is also 118 i.e. equal to the Indian team, but it has been placed at the second position. Meanwhile, teams number one and two are currently in the field. Australia has defeated Pakistan in the first match. He has benefited from this. At the same time, in the second test also, the Kangaroo team seems to have a strong hold. If the Australian team also wins the second test against Pakistan, then its rating will increase from 118 to 119 and the Indian team will have to come second. After this, if the Indian team loses the match played between India and South Africa, then its rating will reduce to 114. With this, the Indian team will not go to second place, but directly to third place. Australia will move to number one and England will move to number two with a rating of 115.

Team India can remain number one team by defeating South Africa

If the equations become such that Australia also wins its match and Team India also succeeds in defeating South Africa, then the Indian team will be at number one with a rating of 120 and Australia will be at second place with a rating of 119. . In the third and last match that will be played between Australia and Pakistan, if the Australian team wins then its rating will become 121 and if Team India also wins the second match then it will remain at number one with a rating of 122.

There will be change in ICC test ranking after these two tests

According to the current situation, it seems that Australia has the capability to defeat Pakistan in all three matches of the series, in such a situation the Indian team will have to win both the matches, only then it will retain its hold on the number one position. If this happens, then this will be the first time that the Indian team will be able to win a Test series from South Africa. So far, South Africa is the only place where Team India has not been able to win the Test series. This time too the competition is expected to be tough. It remains to be seen how the results of these two series will be and what changes will happen in the ICC Test rankings after that.
