NZ cricketers can drop in test rankings

9:06 am on 20 November 2008

Australia can relegate New Zealand to eighth place in the ICC Test Cricket Championship if they win both matches which starts in Brisbane today.

Currently in seventh place behind Pakistan and ahead of the West Indies, Daniel Vettori's team will at least have to draw one match if it is to remain above the men from the Caribbean.

If the top-ranked Australians win the series 2-nil it will gain just one ratings point.
