England have completed their ascent to the top of the one-day international rankings.

In the International Cricket Council's annual update, Eoin Morgan's side have leapfrogged India after a successful winter Down Under to reach the summit for the first time since January 2013.

England cruised to a 4-1 success in Australia before edging New Zealand 3-2 to make it six straight series victories.

It completes a remarkable turnaround in fortunes after England dropped to sixth in the rankings following their wretched 2015 World Cup campaign.

South Africa have fallen a place to third with New Zealand and Australia making up the top five.
