The International Cricket Council (ICC) has apologized for the technical glitch, which saw India displace Australia to attain the No.1 spot in the men’s Test team rankings on Wednesday.
Hours after India had ‘ended’ the Test ranking, the ICC issued another updated list that led Rohit Sharma’s side around at No.2. It gave the image that Rohit’s team had briefly asserted the top spot following its innings and 132-run win over the Pat Cummins-led Australia in Nagpur.
On Thursday, the game’s international body acknowledged the fallacy and said in a statement that the “ICC acknowledges, for a short period of time on February 15, 2023, that, due to a technical error, India was erroneously displayed as the No.1 Test team on the ICC website.
“We apologize for any inconvenience caused.” “Australia remains on top of the ICC Test Team Rankings after the latest update following the conclusion of Zimbabwe’s two-match series against West Indies.” “Australia will head into the second Test against India in Delhi, starting on Friday, January 17, as the No.1-ranked team with 126 rating points, 11 above India’s 115,” the ICC statement added.
An argument over selfies quickly escalated into combat with a baseball bat and a car chase in Mumbai for cricketer Prithvi Shaw, according to a police complaint.
Eight people have been named in the police case for allegedly charging Mr. Shaw and his friend, breaking the windshield of their car and demanding ₹ 50,000.
