Virat Kohli only Indian in top 10 of ICC ODI rankings

Similarly, among bowlers, Bangladesh and England have three each inside the top 20, followed by New Zealand, South Africa and Australia with two each.

All the teams have a lot to play in the coming time.

Finally, South Africa won the match, but it lost the series.

Paceman Kagiso Rabada did the damage for the Proteas, picking up 4-12 from his first three overs.

Roland-Jones' call-up as cover came less than 24 hours ago and the Middlesex paceman responded on his home ground with a battling 37 not out from number nine but had little to bowl at as Hashim Amla (55) kickstarted the untaxing chase.

But they were immediately up against it as Rabada and Parnell exploited conditions expertly.

South Africa needed just five balls to strike, with England opener Jason Roy (four) edging a good length Rabada ball that move down the Lord's slope to Hasim Amla at first slip.

Joe Root's shot was then perhaps a signal of England's mis-adventure when he missed Parnell's full-length inswing to be plumb lbw.

That was the end of the foyrth over and next ball Alex Hales, trying to drive Rabada, got an outside edge to Amla and England were 15 for four. England, courtesy the series win, have achieved two points, but continues to remain fifth in the table. Best of them all arguably was Faf du Plessis' head-high take at second slip to account for Jos Buttler.

England's series win over South Africa helped the side gain two points in the team rankings, also reflecting on the close competition that can be expected in a crisp tournament like the ICC Champions Trophy starting on Thursday.

The paceman also said that his stint with English county side Kent a year ago has helped him adapt quicker to conditions in the United Kingdom, although he did not play at two of the grounds that will be used for the Champions Trophy.

Confirmation of that inadequacy was being swiftly delivered while Amla raced to a 51-ball 50.

Even so, England's untimely trouncing was merely delayed a little.
