Dubai: India have a great chance of climbing to the top of the ICC T20I championship table if they manage to win all four matches scheduled to be played against England and Pakistan before the end this year.

India are all set to play England in a two-match Twenty20 International series, starting in Pune tomorrow, before squaring off against arch-rivals Pakistan, in another two-match series, commencing in Bangalore on December 25.

Victory in all four games for India, currently ranked third on the T20I table with 120 ratings points, will not only propel them to number one position with a gain of 12 rating points but will also open up a five-point lead over current table toppers, Sri Lanka.
