Cape Town - The Proteas will be looking to retain their No 1 spot on the ICC ODI team rankings in the upcoming six-match ODI series against India.

After a triumphant 2-1 Test series victory over India, Faf du Plessis and his charges now turn their attention to the 50-over format of the game, which starts in Durban on Thursday, February 1.

To retain the top spot, the Proteas will have to win or draw the series.

India, currently ranked second, can top the ODI table if they win the series 4-2 or better.

However, Virat Kohli and his charges will slip behind England into third place by a fraction of a point if South Africa win the series 5-1 or better.
