    Australia have conceded the No. 1 Test ranking to India after losing all three Tests on their tour of Sri Lanka. Virat Kohli's team - currently ahead of Pakistan by one point - must win the fourth Test against West Indies, beginning on August 18 in Trinidad, to retain their top ranking.
    Australia slipped to No. 3 after the 163-run defeat at the SSC; they had begun the series with 118 points but finished the contest just ahead of England, who also have 108 points at No. 4, on the ICC's rankings.

    The farce in Port of Spain ended in bright sunshine with no play possible, just like the earlier three days. Called off at 9.30am on the fifth day, this was the third-shortest non-abandoned Test ever.
    This was the first Test played in August in Trinidad, which is the rainy season. The outfield had taken a lot of beating in the days leading up to the Test, but the ground staff was economical with covering the ground when it rained, leaving the bowlers' run-up exposed. There was no super sopper available either. As a result the field didn't recover from the rain on day one, and only 22 overs - all in the first session of the Test - were bowled.

    Sri Lanka batsman Tillakaratne Dilshan, who pioneered the "Dilscoop" flick over the wicketkeeper's head, has announced his international retirement.
    Dilshan, 39, will step down after a final one-day international on Sunday and two more Twenty20 internationals next month against Australia

    Australia captain Steven Smith will miss the remainder of the tour of Sri Lanka - three ODIs and two T20Is - as he returns home to rest ahead of the tour of South Africa. David Warner will lead the side in the rest of the fixtures in Sri Lanka
