It is very interesting to see that Sri Lanka and South Africa are sitting at the same rating level but South Africa seems to be doing well in Australia. However There is an ongoing test series between India and England and the 2nd test match Between Australia  to be held in Hobart. The results might change the whole complexion of the rating and it is interesting to see whether Sri Lanka can climb up the ranking ladder by beating South Africa in December.
