England are the fourth team after Australia, South Africa and India to achieve the number-one position on the Reliance ICC Test rankings table.

England had sealed the number-one position after taking an unbeatable 3-0 at Edgbaston but victory in the fourth Test not only strengthened their position at the top but also dropped India into third position with 117 ratings points, one behind second-placed South Africa.

The Championship table will now be updated at the end of Sri Lanka and Australia series which starts on Wednesday in Galle.
