England, who last topped the ODI rankings in January 2013 have achieved eight points and moved to 125 points.
England's rise up the table is largely because of a forgettable 2014-15 season which saw them winning only seven out of 25 ODIs against other full members.

South Africa, who were second, have dropped down to third place after losing four points, from 117 to 113, leaving them nine points adrift of India and only one point ahead of fourth- placed New Zealand.
The remaining places stay unchanged, meaning that the current top 10 ranked sides are the ones who will be playing in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019.  However, there have been some significant changes in points.
Australia have lost eight points to go down to 104 in fifth position and are only two points ahead of ICC Champions Trophy-2017 winners Pakistan, who have gained six points.
In other changes, Bangladesh (93 points) have gained three points, Sri Lanka (77) have lost seven points, the West Indies (69) have lost five points, Afghanistan (63) have gained five points, Zimbabwe (55) have gained four points and 12th-placed Ireland (38) have lost three points.

Pakistan (130) and Australia (126) remain in the first two positions without a change in their points total while India have gained two points to reach 123. New Zealand (116) are unchanged on points while England (115) have gained a solitary point.
