Sydney: Australia have reclaimed the number one Test ranking for the first time in five years following their Ashes whitewash of England and a series defeat of South Africa.
Australia also remain the top-rated one day international side in the latest official rankings from the International Cricket Council (ICC).
It is the first time since December 2008 that Australia have been ranked number one in Tests and ODIs at the same time. They last held the top Test ranking in August 2009, when they were displaced after losing the Ashes 2-1 to England.
Darren Lehmann's Australians nudged out South Africa, who had held the top Test spot since August 2012.
