New Zealand has slipped to fourth place in the ICC ODI Team Rankings after their 35-run loss to India in the fifth ODI in Wellington.
New Zealand are now on 111 points, the same as South Africa, but behind on decimal points, even as second-placed India gained one point to bridge the gap with ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 hosts England. England leads the table with 126 points, while India has reached 122.
Pakistan, who lost a close series to South Africa 3-2 last week, sit in fifth position with 102 points, while World champions Australia lie in sixth place with 100 points.
