Internet Desk: Mithali Raj led Indian cricket team have retained their No.4 spot but gained three crucial points as they reach to 116 points in the ICC Women’s ODI rankings for the very first time after the annual rankings update.

The Indian Women’s team which played the final of the ICC Women’s World Cup back in July, is just a few points behind New Zealand who are holding the third spot in the rankings.

The Blackcaps have maintained their third position with 118 points.

India captain Mithali Raj said her team is aiming to climb up to No. 3 position.

"Gaining these valuable points is no mean achievement and have come after some fine performances over the past year, including at the World Cup. I'm sure this will inspire our team in matches ahead," said Mithali.

"We are now close to New Zealand in the rankings and will aim to be number three," she added.

The table is headed by England, who have dethroned Australia from the top position.

England are now level with Australia on 128 points but ahead on decimal points after the annual update, following which results from the 2013-14 season are no longer included.

The rankings now take into account 2014-15 and 2015-16 seasons at 50 per cent each while the 2016-17 season accounts for 100 per cent.

England and Australia are the only sides to see a change in the rankings.

The West Indies are in fifth position but have lost four points to be at 101, South Africa at sixth are on 93 points, Pakistan have lost one point and are on 72 while Sri Lanka too are unchanged in points to be at eighth position.
