Sri Lanka eye ODI top spot

World Cricket

Colombo, Sri Lanka – Sri Lanka captain Angelo Mathews says his team wants to use the forthcoming series against South Africa as a stepping stone toward the No. 1 spot in the one day international rankings, ahead of next year's World Cup.

“That's at the back of our mind,” Mathews said of the top spot ahead of a three match series against South Africa. “But we just want to take it game by game, series by series, play positive cricket.”
