The New Zealand men's cricket team has risen one place in the international Test rankings, climbing above Sri Lanka to sixth place - while Australia have overtaken South Africa in top spot.

The stunning Ashes win and series defeat of South Africa has seen Australia reclaim the No.1 Test ranking for the first time in five years.

England and Pakistan have climbed a place each on the Test list, to third and fourth respectively, while India's dropped two places to fifth.

The Black Caps remain seventh on the one day international rankings - the Australians also top the ODI list.
