India just one win away to claim No.1 position in Tests

Karachi—After the Indian spin-duo of Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja spun a web around New Zealand batsmen in the first of the three-Test series, Virat Kohli’s men are eyeing the top spot in the ICC Test rankings.
India celebrated their 500th Test in style on Monday when they overcame New Zealand’s final dogged resistance to win the series opener by 197 runs and go 1-0 up.
Trailing Pakistan by just one point, India is just one win away to grab the number one position. If India leapfrogs Pakistan, Misbah’s men will have to cleansweep the West Indies to reclaim the top spot. However, if India beats the Kiwis 3-0 then Pakistan will only manage to grab the second spot.—AFP
