However South Africa is still at ease ahead of the remaining sides.

Other significant changes on the T20I table see South Africa (114) and the Windies (114) both gain three points with the former ahead on decimals in sixth position, Sri Lanka (85, ninth position) lose four points, Zimbabwe (58, 12th) lose three points, the Netherlands (53, 13th) gain four points, Hong Kong (42, 15th) lose four points and Ireland (33, 17th) lose three points. India and South Africa had won 1 million dollars and five lakh dollars, respectively for finishing first and second at the cut-off date.

England cruised to a 4-1 success in Australia before edging New Zealand 3-2 to make it six straight series victories.

The major setback came to West Indies for even Bangladesh moved one notch up pushing the Caribbean team at No. 9.

The Windies have lost five points and are now on 67 points while Bangladesh have gained four points to reach 75, eight points clear of the Windies.

India attained the third position after gaining two points to reach 123, and are followed by New Zealand, who have retained their 116 points.

In the next annual update, Afghanistan and Ireland will join, making it 12-team table.

Nepal, meanwhile, have rejoined the T20I ratings but will need to play one more match before they can be placed on the ICC T20I Rankings, which is now led by Pakistan.

That 2014-15 season, which also featured the removal of Alastair Cook as ODI captain in the wake of a losing tour of Sri Lanka, is now widely recognised as a watershed moment for English cricket. Against New Zealand at Edgbaston, in their first completed fixture of the post-World Cup era, England posted their first 400-plus total in ODIs, and have made 300 or more in 27 of their 60 completed innings.

The Proteas lost four points to slip to 112 while Australia are now on 106 after moving up four points.
