Black Caps up in rankings

12:42 pm on 19 February 2014

New Zealand has moved up one spot to seventh in the ICC Test cricket rankings after beating India.

The drawn second Test at the Basin Reserve gave the Black Caps a 1-0 series victory, their second series triumph of the summer after their win over the West Indies in December.

The New Zealanders are now just ahead of the eighth-placed West Indies.

India remain second, but will lose that spot if Australia at least draw their series against South Africa.
