<p>In all three forms of the game, India is currently atop the ICC rankings and leads the World Test Championship (WTC) standings.</p>
<p>Remarkably, Rohit’s team will continue to lead the table regardless of the outcome of the New Zealand vs Australia second Test, which is under underway in Christchurch.</p>
<p>Australia, the defending World Test Championship victors, won by 172 runs in Wellington to take a 1-0 lead in the two-Test series.</p>
<p>In the Test standings, India leads Australia by five points with 122 rating points, while England comes in third with 111 rating points.</p>
<p>India leads Australia by a narrow margin in One-Day Internationals (ODIs), with 121 rating points.</p>
<p>India leads the T20Is with 266 rating points, followed by England (256).</p>
<p>From September 2023 until January 2024, India was the top-ranked Test team in the world. However, after a tie in their away series against South Africa, they dropped to second place.</p>
<p>Following their home victory in the three-Test series against Pakistan, Australia surpassed India to take the top spot in the Test rankings.</p>
<p>India lost the first Test in Hyderabad by 28 runs in their five-Test series against England. However, the home side won the next four Test matches after mounting a strong comeback.</p>
<p>Their triumphs at Ranchi, Dharamsala, Rajkot, Visakhapatnam, and other locations enabled them to take the top spot in the Test rankings again.</p>
