Potchefstroom - South Africa have a chance to move to second in the ICC One Day International Championship on Sunday after the first ODI between India and Australia in Kochi was abandoned.

"To achieve this, they will have to beat Zimbabwe in the second ODI being played (on Sunday) in Potchefstroom," said the International Cricket Council.

"However, if they lose the match, the Proteas will drop to as low as fifth - one point behind fourth-placed England."

The ICC said Bangladesh was still in ninth place after beating New Zealand 4-0 in the five-match series in Mirpur on Sunday, but that New Zealand had slipped to seventh, behind sixth-placed Pakistan.

It said Bangladesh could move into eighth place when they host Zimbabwe in a five-match ODI series from December 1 to 15.

At the moment, the West Indies are ranked eighth. They play five ODIs against Sri Lanka from December 9.


1 Australia
2 India
3 Sri Lanka
4 South Africa

11 Zimbabwe
