Sri Lanka has dropped two places to fifth spot in the Reliance Mobile ICC Test Championship table following its drawn series with the West Indies, which concluded in Pallekele on Sunday.
The three-match series ended 0-0 after a combination of bad weather and a resurgent West Indies performance with both bat and ball deprived the home team of a single victory.
With the men from the Caribbean ranked four places below Kumar Sangakkara’s side prior to the first match, a drawn series has knocked SL down to 109 ratings points, behind England and Australia, which in turn both gain one place as a result.
