The South Africa vs India 2-match test series ended drawn and because of this Australia became the No 1 test team in the latest ICC test team rankings 2024.

The Australian team has been on an exceptional streak, including a series of victories at home against Shan Masood-led Pakistan, which played a crucial role in propelling them back to the top-ranked test team. This also includes their monumental World Test Championship (WTC) 2021-23 win over India last year in England. The win had helped Australia to secure the No.1 briefly.
