Johannesburg - South Africa and Australia have retained the top two positions on the ICC ODI Team rankings following the May 1 annual update.

Eighth-ranked Pakistan have opened up a nine-point advantage over ninth-ranked the West Indies however which could prove decisive since England plus the next seven highest-ranked sides as on September 30, 2017 will qualify automatically for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019.

The annual update is carried out to ensure the table continues to reflect teams’ recent form with older results being discarded. As such, the table now reflects all matches from May 1, 2014, with matches played from May 1, 2016 carrying 100 percent weighting.
