The Champions Trophy kicked-off today starting with South Africa vs Sri Lanka. The tournament though won't just be a race for a trophy but also a race for the number one spot in the ODI rankings.
In the past ten days, three teams have been the top ranked ODI side in the world.
The Proteas are currently on top of both the Test and one-day rankings.
With Australia, India and South Africa breathing on each other's necks, everyone eye is on that Number 1 spot. And getting their now will be relatively easier, but staying put there will be a huge challenge for any of these three teams.
