New Zealanda��sA�1-0 series win over EnglandA�and Australiaa��s 3-1 loss to South Africa have resulted in both teams finishing on 102 points in the team rankings. However, New Zealand is ahead by a wafer-thin margin, as they are now on 102.263 points and Australia are on 102.2 points.

The change in rankings means that New Zealand will now get a prize money of $200,000 for finishing third while Australia will have to be content with $100,000.

South Africa had already assured themselves of the second place and $500,000 after having taken up a 2-1 lead in the series since only Australia could overtake them in the team list. Australia needed to win 3-0 or better to overtake South Africa while they had to avoid losing 3-1 or worse to ensure that neither New Zealand nor England could overtake them.

India has already been presented with theA�ICC Test Championship MaceA�and a $1 million prize money after they sealed the top spot following victory in the Johannesburg Test against South Africa in January. South Africa had won the series 2-1. India and South Africa had also finished in similar rankings in 2017.
