New Zealand aims to climb up rankings

New Zealand will hope to draw level with India in the Reliance Mobile ICC ODI Rankings table when it faces Sri Lanka on Thursday.

A victory will take it above South Africa in the table, although it will remain in third place behind India as both teams will be on 117 points.

However, a defeat for New Zealand will send it down to sixth place in the rankings behind Sri Lanka, who will rise to fifth place.
