    ICC Teams and Player Rankings watch for 2019

    India spinner Kuldeep Yadav has moved up one place to take a career-best second position in the MRF Tyres ICC Menís T20I Player Rankings after grabbing two for 26 in the final match against New Zealand which his side lost by four runs to go 2-1 down in the series.

    The 24-year-old left-arm wrist-spinner accounted for well-set openers Tim Seifert and Colin Munro in the only match he played during the series and reaped immediate dividends. He is now only behind Afghanistan leg-spinner Rashid Khan in the table.

    Spinners Imad Wasim of Pakistan (up five places to fourth position) and Mitchell Santner of New Zealand (up four places to 10th) have also moved up in the latest rankings update that includes two other series which saw South Africa beat Pakistan and Nepal beat the United Arab Emirates by identical 2-1 margins.

    Left-arm spinner Krunal Pandya was another spinner to move up as he advanced 39 places to a career-best 58th while India openers Rohit Sharma (up three places to seventh) and Shikhar Dhawan (up one place to 11th) have made progress with some useful knocks.

    For New Zealand, Kane Williamson (up one place to 12th), Ross Taylor (up seven places to 51st) and Tim Seifert (up 87 places to a career-best 83rd) among batsmen and Tim Southee (up seven places to 30th) among bowlers are some notable gainers.

    For South Africa, left-arm fast bowler Beuran Hendricksís eight wickets against Pakistan have helped him re-enter the rankings at a career-best 81st position while his compatriot Chris Morris has gained seven slots to reach a career-best 21st position after finishing with six wickets. Andile Phehlukwayo has also advanced 15 places to a career-best 23rd position with five wickets.

    Among their batsmen, Faf du Plessis (up from 20th to 17th) and Reeza Hendricks (up from 73rd to 42nd) have been the main gainers.

    Pakistanís Babar Azam continues at the top of the batsmenís list after scoring 151 runs in the series while Hussain Talat has gained 19 places to reach 56th position after aggregating 98 runs. Shaheen Afridi has moved up 28 places to a career-best 48th position among bowlers.


    The UAEís Shaiman Anwar has risen to 15th among batsmen with a gain of two slots while Mohammad Naveed has gained three places to reach 12th position among bowlers. Nepalís Paras Khadka has gained five places to reach 90th position while Basant Regmi (up four places) and Sompal Kami (up 22 places) are in joint 70th position among bowlers.

    In the MRF Tyres ICC Menís T20I Team Rankings, South Africa have overtaken Australia and England to third place while Nepal have overtaken the UAE marginally to be in 14th position even as they come onto the table within a week of similarly crossing the threshold of eight matches and gaining entry in the ODI table.

    He's getting a lot of hate because he is playing on the fake all-rounder quota. Other members in this hall of fame include Bilawal Bhatti and Anwar Ali. Off course Lala is the pioneer of that quota.

    That's your opinion, I think Kohli, Munro, QDK, Butler, Bairstow and Sharma are better. You do not necessarily have to be the best to top the ranking.

    Because ranking is based on recent performances, you can't judge or compare players solely based on ranking. For example you can't seriously believe Fakhar Zaman to be even remotely comparable to someone like Sharma, Dhawan or Kohli but he is ranked higher than all 3 of them, if you still don't understand then I am sorry my friend, I don't think I can dumb it down any further.

    Most of the guy who feature are going to be T20 players who regularly represent their team. You could see from the list, Lewis, Munro, Finch, Maxie are T20 regulars for their country.

    If he is dud in bilateral then he's behind Babar. Otherwise Tendulkar/Richard/Ponting are head and shoulders above Kohli in ODIs due to WC performance.

    It all comes to personal preferences and opinions, I don't care about bilataral t20s, you can rate anyone anyway you want and I got no problems with that.

    ICC Test Teams and Player Rankings watch for 2019

    Sri Lanka batsmen Kusal Mendis and Oshada Fernando have made major gains in the MRF Tyres ICC Test Player Rankings after anchoring their side to a memorable eight-wicket win in Port Elizabeth that helped complete a historic 2-0 series triumph.

    The unbroken 163-run stand from the pair enabled Sri Lanka to become the first Asian team to win a Test series in South Africa and they had individual gains too. An unbeaten 84 from Mendis lifted him to 18th among batsmen while Fernando’s 75 not out helped him jump 35 places and reach 65th position in the list after just two Tests.

    Niroshan Dickwella is another Sri Lanka batsman to make a notable improvement in the latest rankings update, moving up eight slots to reach 37th place with his first innings knock of 42 while left-handed opener Lahiru Tharimanne finds himself in the top 100.

    Among their bowlers, Suranga Lakmal (up three places to 30th) and Vishwa Fernando (up six places to a career-best 43rd) have advanced after taking four wickets each in the second Test while Kasun Rajitha’s five wickets in the match have helped him move up eight places to 51st position.

    The bright spot for South Africa is the continued progress of fast bowler Duanne Olivier, who has moved into the top 20 after only 10 Tests. The 26-year-old’s four wickets in the match have helped him gain three slots to reach 19th position in the list, which has two others fast bowlers from his team ahead of him – Kagiso Rabada in third place and Vernon Philander in fourth.

    Meanwhile, South Africa have slipped to third place in the MRF Tyres ICC Test Team Rankings, losing five points and finishing at 105 after losing both Tests to their lower-ranked opposition. Sri Lanka remain in sixth place, but have moved up to 93 points.

    New Zealand are second with 107 points and will need to win an upcoming three-Test home series against Bangladesh, starting Thursday, in order to retain second place. The predictor function is available here.

    India well ahead of the rest as far as test ranking is concerned.

    What is most impressive is we have come out to this position after finishing off the tours of South Africa, England and Australia. Up next are the tours of Windies, home season vs SA and New Zealand tour. And then possibly the complete home season against rest of teams.

    We need to beat Bangladesh at least 2-0 and hope England loses at least one test to retain the 2nd place. It is amazing how we are 2nd though we barely play tests (Thanks NZC!).


    2 possibilities exist: Either we are alone in the Universe or we are not. Both are terrifying.

    You are deservedly 2nd. An India Vs New Zealand series in NZ would be the competitive test series in the world right now imho.

    Maxwell, Hazratullah make huge gains in T20I rankings

    Australia batsman Glenn Maxwell and Afghanistan’s Hazratullah Zazai have risen in the MRF Tyres ICC T20I Player Rankings after superb shows with the bat in their series against India and Ireland, respectively.

    Maxwell, who was the top-ranked batsman in the format a year ago, has gained two slots to reach third position after scores of 56 and 113* that helped complete a 2-0 victory in India, Australia’s first series win in over a decade against the winners of the inaugural ICC Men’s T20 World Cup in 2007.

    Hazratullah has gained a whopping 31 slots to reach a career-best seventh position after aggregating 204 runs in the 3-0 series victory, that included an incredible 162*, the second highest score in T20Is. The left-hander slammed 11 fours and 16 sixes during the 62-ball knock and helped his team post the highest ever T20I total of 278/3.

    For Australia, D’Arcy Short has gained eight slots to reach eighth position among batsmen while Nathan Coulter-Nile has gained four slots to reach 45th position among bowlers after taking four wickets against India, including a player of the match haul of 3/26 in the first match.

    India opener Lokesh Rahul has gained four berths to reach sixth position while formerly top-ranked Virat Kohli (up two places to 17th) and former captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni (up seven places to 56th) have gained among batsmen. Fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah (up 12 places to 15th) and left-arm spinner Krunal Pandya (up 18 places to a career-best 43rd) have also advanced.

    Afghanistan’s Mohammad Nabi has gained 12 slots to reach 30th place and Usman Ghani has moved up 25 slots to 79th among batsmen while Mujeeb-ur-Rehman has moved from 42nd to 40th in the bowlers’ list.

    For Ireland, Kevin O’Brien has gained 10 places to reach 61st among batsmen while Peter Chase has moved up 22 slots and is now ranked 99th among bowlers.

    In the MRF Tyres ICC Men’sT20I Team Rankings, India have retained second position while Australia have overtaken South Africa and England to reach third place and to within two points of India. Afghanistan and Ireland retain eighth and 17th positions, respectively.

    Kane Williamson reaches career-best of 915 rating points after New Zealand's win over Bangladesh; Neil Wagner and Tom Latham also climb up the rankings

    Latham and Wagner move towards top 10 after Hamilton Test
    Tamim, Mahmudullah and Soumya make significant gains

    New Zealand captain Kane Williamson has reached a career-best 915 rating points after an unbeaten double-century in the first Test against Bangladesh in Hamilton, which was the centerpiece of a victory by an innings and 52 runs.

    Williamson’s 200 not out, which earned him the Player of the Match award, has lifted him from 897 points to within seven points of India captain Virat Kohli, who is perched at the top of the MRF Tyres ICC Test Player Rankings with 922 points. With two more Tests to go in the series, Williamson has a chance to regain the top spot, which he occupied briefly towards the end of 2015.

    Williamson’s rating points are the highest by any New Zealander in Test cricket with Richard Hadlee the only other player from his country to cross the 900-point mark with a best of 909 points in bowling.

    Openers Tom Latham and Jeet Raval have also made good progress after their centuries in Hamilton. Latham’s score of 161 has lifted him one place to a career-best 11th position and just three points shy of South Africa’s Faf du Plessis, who is in 10th place with 702 points. Raval’s maiden century, after seven fifties, has helped him gain five slots and reach 33rd position.

    Among their bowlers, the pair of Trent Boult (down two places to eighth) and Tim Southee (ninth) remain in the top 10 while Neil Wagner is also moving in the right direction, gaining three places and reaching 11th position after finishing with seven wickets in the match, including a five-wicket haul in the first innings.

    For Bangladesh, left-handed opener Tamim Iqbal has gained 11 slots to reach 25th position after scores of 126 and 74, overtaking Shakib Al Hasan to become the top-ranked batsman from his country in this format. Mahmudullah has moved up 12 places to reach a career-best 40th after scoring 22 and 146 while Soumya Sarkar’s one and 149 in Hamilton have lifted him 25 places to 67th position.

    Mahmudullah has also gained three places to reach 63rd position among bowlers.

    Rashid, Jordan and Willey attain career-best T20I rankings

    • Bairstow, Billlings, Pooran the batsmen to move up after West Indies-England series

    Leg-spinner Adil Rashid has equaled his career-best third place in the MRF Tyres ICC Men’s T20I Player Rankings for bowlers even as a host of England bowlers strode up the list after their comprehensive 3-0 series victory over the West Indies.

    Rashid’s five wickets in the series have helped him gain two slots and cross the 700-point mark for the first time in his career during this series. Chris Jordan has also equaled his career-best 10th position after grabbing six wickets in the series, the first time he finds himself in the top 10 since September 2017, while David Willey is at a career-best 11th position after also finishing with six wickets.

    Among their batsmen, Jonny Bairstow’s 117 runs in the series have seen him reach 55th place with a career-best points tally of 445. Sam Billings’s match-winning knock of 87 in the second T20I and an aggregate of 105 runs have lifted him 56 places to 84th position.

    For the West Indies, left-hander Nicholas Pooran has gained 18 slots to reach 79th place among batsmen, while left-arm spinner Fabian Allen (up 33 places to 72nd) and left-arm fast bowler Sheldon Cottrell (up 15 places to 79th) are the notable gainers in the bowlers’ list.

    In the MRF Tyres ICC Men’s T20I Team Rankings, England have leapfrogged South Africa and Australia to reach third position while the West Indies remain in seventh position despite losing three points. In an upcoming series, South Africa have a chance to move up to 120 points if they win 3-0 against Sri Lanka. On the other hand, Sri Lanka can gain as many as seven points if they are able to win by the same margin.

    Taylor, Nicholls and Mahmudullah move up in rankings after Wellington Test

    Neil Wagner has attained a career-best fifth position among bowlers in the MRF Tyres ICC Test Player Rankings after grabbing nine wickets in the Wellington Test and contributing in his team’s win over Bangladesh by an innings and 12 runs.

    The 32-year-old left-arm fast bowler has not only gained six slots but also crossed the 800-point mark, becoming only the third bowler from his country to do so. He is now on 801 points, with only Trent Boult (825) and ICC Cricket Hall of Famer Richard Hadlee (909) having done better in terms of rating points. His teammate Tim Southee is another one to get close to the mark, having reached 799 points in June 2014.

    Wagner is now the top ranked bowler from his side but Boult too has gained one slot to reach seventh position after taking seven wickets in the victory in Wellington, which wrapped a winning 2-0 lead in the three-Test series and ensured they stay second in the MRF Tyres ICC Test Team Rankings after the series.

    New Zealand claimed a series win over Bangladesh New Zealand claimed a series win over Bangladesh
    Ross Taylor has moved up 11 places to 13th position in the list for batsmen after his score of 200 while Henry Nicholls’s knock of 107 has lifted him two places to fifth position with a career-best tally of 778 rating points. Captain Kane Williamson remains their highest ranked batsman, at second position in the list led by India captain Virat Kohli.

    For Bangladesh, Mahmudullah has reached a career-best 34th position, moving up six slots after scores of 13 and 67. Shadman Islam (up from 102nd to 98th) and Mohammad Mithun (up from 140th to 115th) have also moved up in the list for batsmen while fast bowler Abu Jayed has advanced 18 places to 77th position after taking three wickets in the match.

    Meanwhile, Afghanistan host Ireland for a one-off Test in the northern Indian city of Dehradun from Friday, which will be the second Test for both teams. It will give the likes of captain William Porterfield (72nd among batsmen) and Tim Murtagh (67th among bowlers) of Ireland, and Afghanistan’s captain Asgar Afghan (130th among batsmen) and leg-spinner Rashid Khan (117th among bowlers) a chance to move up the rankings.

    South Africa opener Quinton de Kock has grabbed fourth position among batsmen in the MRF Tyres ICC Men’s ODI Player Rankings after playing a huge part in his team’s 5-0 victory over Sri Lanka in a home series that ended in Cape Town on Saturday.

    The 26-year-old left-handed wicketkeeper-batsman’s 353 runs in the series, which included one century and three half-centuries, have helped him win the player of the series award and gain four slots in the latest rankings, which also see his captain Faf du Plessis move up to fifth position after scoring 272 runs.

    India captain Virat Kohli and vice-captain Rohit Sharma remain at number one and two after scoring 310 and 202 runs, respectively, in the home series against Australia, which they lost 3-2. The latest rankings update carried out on Sunday also includes performances from series that saw New Zealand defeat Bangladesh 3-0 and the two drawn series between the West Indies and England, and Afghanistan and Ireland.

    In the list for bowlers, two formerly top-ranked players have made significant gains. New Zealand fast bowler Trent Boult has moved up one place to second after finishing with six wickets against Bangladesh while South Africa leg-spinner Imran Tahir has gained seven slots to reach fourth place after taking nine wickets against Sri Lanka.

    Rahmat advances 88 places after scripting Afghanistan's maiden Test win

    Afghanistan batsman Rahmat Shah has made quick progress in the MRF Tyres ICC Test Player Rankings after starring in his side’s seven-wicket victory over Ireland in the one-off Test played in the northern Indian city of Dehradun.

    Yamin, Rashid, O’Brien and Murtagh others to gain after Dehradun Test match.

    The 25-year-old has advanced 88 places to reach 89th position in the rankings after scores of 98 and 76. The player of the match in his country’s second Test is now the highest-ranked batsman from his team, ahead of captain Asghar Afghan, who is in 106th place after gaining 24 places with a knock of 67. Hashmatullah Shahidi is another Afghanistan batsman to advance, moving up three slots to 110.

    Fast bowler Yamin Ahmadzai and leg-spinner Rashid Khan have made rapid strides in the bowlers’ list.

    Yamin, who grabbed three wickets in Afghanistan’s inaugural Test against India last year, has gained 45 places to reach 50th position after finishing with six wickets in Dehradun. Rashid, who is top-ranked in T20Is and third in ODIs, has gained 50 places to reach 67th position after claiming seven wickets including the first five-wicket Test haul by an Afghanistan bowler.

    For Ireland, Kevin O-Brien has moved up four places to 68th while fast bowler Tim Murtagh has also gained in the list for batsmen after a rare Test half-century batting at No.11, his scores of 54* and 27 lifting him 59 places to 140th.

    Debutant Andy Balbirnie has gained 73 slots to reach 145th position after a second-innings knock of 82 while among bowlers, Stuart Thompson has gained 18 slots to reach 64th position after taking three wickets in the match.

    The second Test for both teams meant a step towards a full place in the MRF Tyres ICC Test Team Rankings, for which they need another six matches.

    Finch moves into top 10 after Pakistan series

    Australia captain Aaron Finch has moved into the top 10 of the MRF Tyres ICC Men’s ODI Player Rankings after a superb run in the series against Pakistan which his side won 5-0 to bolster its confidence just two months before the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2019.

    The 32-year-old’s player of the series effort of 451 runs, with two centuries and at an average of 112.75, has seen him gain 12 slots to reach joint-ninth position, even as his other team-mates too made important gains in the list of batsmen with memorable efforts in the five-match series in the United Arab Emirates.

    Finch’s opening partner Usman Khawaja has gained six slots to reach 19th position after scoring 272 runs in the series while Glenn Maxwell has advanced 10 places to reach 23rd place with 258 runs. Shaun Marsh has gained three slots to reach 44th after an aggregate of 182 runs.

    Among their bowlers, leg-spinner Adam Zampa (up from 49th to 45th) and fast bowler Nathan Coulter-Nile (up from 60th to 49th) have reaped the rewards of taking seven wickets each in the series while Jhye Richardson (up from 47th to 38th) is another one to move up.

    For Pakistan, Imad Wasim has made huge gains after scoring 141 runs in the series and taking three wickets. The left-hander, who led his side in the last two matches after Shoaib Malik had to withdraw due to an injury, has gained 16 places to reach 68th among batsmen, advanced seven places to reach 37th in the list of bowlers and moved from 16th to joint-sixth among all-rounders along with West Indies captain Jason Holder.

    Others to advance for Pakistan include Haris Sohail (up 33 places to 58th) and Mohammad Rizwan (up 45 places to 101st) among batsmen and Yasir Shah (up four places to 62nd) and Faheem Ashraf (up nine places to 70th) among bowlers.

    There has been no change of positions in the MRF Tyres ICC Men’s ODI Team Rankings but Australia have increased the gap over Pakistan from one to 11 points.

    India and England have retained their top positions in the team rankings for Tests and ODIs, respectively, after the annual update today in which series results from 2015-16 are removed, and outcomes from 2016-17 and 2017-18 are weighted at 50 per cent.
    New Zealand close in to within two points of top-ranked India in Tests

    England remain the number one ranked ODI team with less than a month to go until the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2019, but India narrow gap to just two points

    India and England have retained their top positions in the team rankings for Tests and ODIs, respectively, after the annual update today in which series results from 2015-16 are removed, and outcomes from 2016-17 and 2017-18 are weighted at 50 per cent.

    India’s lead over New Zealand in the MRF Tyres ICC Test Team Rankings has narrowed from eight to two points and England remain at the top of the MRF Tyres ICC ODI Team Rankings with their gap over India reduced to just two points in an expanded table.

    Test rankings: India were on 116 points and New Zealand on 108 before the update but India’s 3-0 win over South Africa and 2-1 win in Sri Lanka being purged as part of the 2015-16 season sees them losing three points while New Zealand’s two 2-0 defeats to Australia being removed sees them gain three points.

    In the only change of positions on the table, England have overtaken Australia to fourth position and are on 105 points. Australia are on 98 points after dropping six points as they had won four of the five series in 2015-16, no more part of the calculations. In another significant movement, the gap between seventh-placed Pakistan and eighth-placed West Indies has trimmed from 11 to two points.

    ODI rankings: England have retained the No. 1 ranking but to go into the World Cup as the top-ranked side, they will need to beat Ireland in an upcoming one-off ODI and then beat Pakistan 3-2 or better in a home series, or lose to Ireland but then beat Pakistan 4-1 or better.

    South Africa have overtaken New Zealand into third position while another change in positions sees the West Indies moving ahead of Sri Lanka to seventh place. No team has dropped out of the top 10, thus ensuring that the World Cup will see the 10 top-ranked sides in action.

    Three of the four teams awarded ODI status at the end of the World Cricket League Division 2 will join the rankings once they have played the requisite eight qualifying matches. However, PNG join the rankings immediately having played several ODIs prior to April 2018. The Netherlands, who already had ODI status, will need to play two more ODIs to achieve a ranking.

    The annual update for the MRF Tyres ICC Men’s T20I Team Rankings will be made on Friday, 3 May.

    Pakistan lost a lot of points in test match cricket. But it's justified considering how badly we've played in the recent past.

    Six months ago, I would have put Pakistan atleast at 6 considering how bad SL had been. But since then, SL whitewashed SA in SA , Windies smashed England and Pakistan lost to NZ in UAE. So I suppose it's a fairly accurate reflection where the teams stand. Only India and NZ have been decent for any consistent period. Rest have been wildly inconsistent.

    Agree.

    Though these rankings would become irrelevant once test championship starts, with only those 6 series deciding the top 2 teams

    Icc t20i rankings update

    ICC UNVEILS GLOBAL MEN’S T20I RANKINGS TABLE FEATURING 80 TEAMS

    ∑ Pakistan consolidate position at the top with teams from all five regions also ranked in the most accessible form of the game

    The International Cricket Council today unveiled an expanded MRF Tyres ICC Men’s T20I Team Rankings table with 80 teams who will now be able to gauge their progress in a format recognised by the world body as the vehicle for the growth of the game.

    Teams like Austria, Botswana, Luxembourg and Mozambique are among the sides figuring in the first men’s T20I ranking table that features all Members meeting the criteria of having played six matches against other ICC members since May 2016.

    The move to expand the table follows ICC’s decision last year that all men’s T20 matches between Members from 1 January 2019 will be classified as internationals. As with the ICC Women’s T20I Team Rankings, which were launched in October 2018, teams will need to play six matches against other teams in the previous three to four years to remain in the rankings table

    The qualification process for the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup which is underway includes 58 T20I matches across five regional finals is likely to mean significant movements on the rankings over the coming months. The first final was held in Papua New Guinea last month whilst the Africa final in Uganda (19-24 May), the Europe final in the Guernsey (15-19 June), the Asia final in Singapore (22-28 July) and the Americas final in the USA (19-25 August) are still to come.

    Six of these teams will join hosts UAE, Hong Kong, Ireland, Netherlands, Oman, Papua New Guinea, Scotland and Zimbabwe in the global qualifier in what will be another chance to improve their standings on the table as they try to qualify for the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2020 in Australia.

    Meanwhile, Pakistan have consolidated their position at the top of the table, which has a wider spread of points to accommodate the additional teams. Pakistan, ICC T20 World Cup champions in 2009, are now on 286 points while the next four teams are within two points of each other – South Africa (262), England (261), Australia (261) and India (260).

    South Africa and India have swapped positions two and five in the expanded table, whose launch coincides with the annual rankings update in which series results from 2015-16 are removed and outcomes from 2016-17 and 2017-18 are weighted at 50 per cent.

    In other significant changes, Afghanistan and Sri Lanka have moved up one place each to seventh and eighth positions, respectively, with the West Indies going down to ninth position. In what will be big news for their passionate fans, Nepal have moved from 14th to 11th position while Namibia have grabbed 20th position.

    Imad moves to second position in T20I rankings

    Pakistan’s left-arm spinner Imad Wasim has moved up to second position in the MRF Tyres ICC T20I Player Rankings after the one-off match against England, which his side lost by seven wickets in Cardiff on Sunday.

    Imad, who had topped the rankings two years ago, has leapfrogged leg-spinners Shadab Khan of Pakistan and Adil Rashid of England, after taking one for 24. Shadab missed the Cardiff match due to an illness while Rashid failed to grab a wicket. Left-arm fast bowler Shaheen Afridi is another one to advance in the rankings - from 50th to 47th position.

    Babar Azam has consolidated his position as the number one batsman after top-scoring in the match with 65, a knock that helped him gain 11 points and take his tally to a career-best 896 rating points. Harris Sohail has also moved up in the list, his knock of 50 lifting him from 218th to 141st place.

    For England, Joe Root has moved up two places to 19th place among batsmen after scoring 47 and captain Eoin Morgan has advanced three places to 22nd after an unbeaten knock of 51, which earned him the player of the match award.

    In other movements, opener James Vince has reentered the rankings at 89th position and Joe Denly has gained 39 slots to reach 134th among batsmen, while Tom Curran has advanced 21 places to reach 85th among bowlers.

    In the MRF Tyres ICC T20I Team Rankings, England have overtaken South Africa to second place in the list led by Pakistan with 283 points. England now have 266 points with South Africa (262), Australia (261) and India (260) following in that order.

    Shai Hope breaks into top five batting rankings

    Shai Hope, the West Indies batsman, jumped five places to enter the top five of the MRF Tyres ICC ODI Rankings for batting after his splendid performances in the recent tri-nation series in Ireland.

    The top-order batsman, who now has a career-best points tally of 808 and sits at No.4 in the batting rankings, accumulated 470 runs at 94.00. He recorded two fifties and two centuries, one of which was a match-winning 170 against the hosts in Dublin.

    Such was the quality of Hope's batting that skipper Jason Holder said he could become the country's greatest ODI cricketer of all time. ďShai has been our most consistent player over the last two years and if he continues in that vein, he could be arguably one of our best ODI players to ever play," he had said.

    Fakhar Zaman, the new entrant in the top 10, ascended two places to reach No.9 after scores of 138 and 57 in the series against England. Other significant gainers in the top 50 include Pakistan's Imam-ul-Haq at No.14 (up eight places) and Sarfaraz Ahmed at No.47 (up nine), Bangladesh's Soumya Sarkar at No.28 (up 10 places) and Ireland's Andrew Balbirnie at No.50 (up eight).

    India skipper Virat Kohli and his deputy, Rohit Sharma, have retained their spots at the apex of the list. Ross Taylor, who is set to play in his fourth 50-over World Cup, has also maintained his position at No.3 to make for a formidable top five going into the World Cup.

    Chris Woakes, the leading wicket-taker in the Pakistan series with 10 scalps in four games, entered the top 10 in the bowling rankings. The England all-rounder jumped nine spots to slot into No.9 with 657 points.

    India's Jasprit Bumrah, New Zealand's Trent Boult and Afghanistan's Rashid Khan remained at the top of the pile with 774, 759 and 726 points respectively.

    Mehidy Hasan, the Bangladesh pacer, gained eight spots to join Australia's Mitchell Starc at No.22, while Mashrafe Mortaza, his skipper, moved up to No.24 (up four places). Pakistan's Imad Wasim climbed nine spots to enter the top 30 at No.28 after adding six England scalps to his name.

    Every ranking system works like that - nothing wrong.

    It's called a set per - No. 1 team against No. 6 team are set at a per of may be 4-1 (4-0 here), which means they need to win 3/4 games just to keep their average base. Had PAK won a game (3-1), I guess ENG could have lost points here. Few years back, PAK became No. 1 Test team, after IND's Test was washed-out, even a 2-0 win didn't earn them positive point.

    Opposite is true as well - from September 2014 to August 2015, we covered 29 points after winning 5-0, 3-0, 2-1, 2-1 and a WC QF to make the CT as 7th team ... because the starting base was 9th and probably 58 points.

    It's perfect system, which allows bottom half teams to catch-up easily, but makes it really tough to hold on to top 5 spots.

    I think, most people don't know how the ranking calculation is done. I am explaining it with reference to Tennis, similar logic is used for Golf, Badminton, ICC or FIFA ranking as well. However, FIFA does recognize Home & Away (& Neutral) venue and "Importance" factor as well (Put multiplier greater than 1 for away wins or competition/qualifier games and <1.00 for home & friendly games).

    For Tennis, say for a Tournament, there is a preset point for every round (higher for GS tournaments, then ATP events and then others ...) - may be for a GS, Winner 1,200; Finalist 1,000; SF (Exit) 800, QF 600, 4th round 400, 3rd round 200, 2nd round 100 and 1st round 50. These are the points to be earned from that tournament.

    Now, for every player, there is a default deduction of points when a player enters in a tournament (Some deduction for not playing as well, but much lesser). These deductions are not random, rather based on standard mathematical models, which is applicable for every player at same formula. For the sake of saying, say Top seed/No. 1 has a default deduction of 900, while a qualifier (Ranked may be 256 in world) has a deduction calculated at 25. That means, if the No. 1 even exits at SF, he'll lose some point (earning 800, losing 900), while a qualifier even if he loses in 1st round, still he is earning 25 points, which might pull his ranking from 256 to 250, while the No. 1 might drop to No. 3.

    I am sure similar formula is used by ICC as well, but unlike Tennis, they present the point on per match basis (total points/no. of games). Take, for this series for ENG (No. 1), default deduction was 90 per complete (result) game against No. 6 team (PAK), or 400 for series; while PAK (No. 6) default deduction was 30/game or 150 for Series against No. 1. This is based on standard formula, therefore the model will determine what will be deduction for two participants by every series. Now, consider every ODI is worth 100 points, means -

    - a 5-0 by Poms would have earned them 50 points (500-450), divided by total games (say 50 games considered in the ranking period), that's 1 point addition. However, they calculate retrospective 3 years as well with different weight, therefore effective ranking might be a little higher than 1 (since higher weight for recent games).

    - for PCT, it will earn 350 points for a 5-0, divided by games (say again 50, like Poms), that's a jump of 7 points per game compared to 1 by Poms; effectively should be more than 7, for the higher weight on recent wins.

    Opposite end, if Poms had lost it 0-5, they are loosing 450 points, which is a drop of 9 ranking points on per game basis (should be much higher, because this time recent game will cost Poms at much higher multiplier, as they are No. 1 based on the higher contribution of recent results) .... for PAK a 0-5 loss is a loss of just 3 (should be LOWER!!! because of the low rank, PAK's share from past should be higher) ranking points loss.

    ICC's ranking system is quite good actually - that's why despite 3-18, PAK's ranking point hasn't dropped that much, but being lower ranked team before the series, Aussies have rocketed past PAK after 5-0 (And, the annualization also had it's impact - PAK's CT went 1 year further back, so did Aussie's 0-5 against SAF). Only two things I would like to add in ICC's ranking system - 1. Home and away (& neutral) factor and 2. Tournament weight-age. If ENG beats PAK in 2019 WC Final, in terms of point, it'll be same as the 5th ODI (Dead rubber after 0-3), which shouldn't be the case.

    I agree that it is better system than soccer which is completely useless ranking system. The bold is actually one of the things that didn't make sense to me. How can you lose that many games yet have negligible impact on your rating?

    The best rating system I see is in Chess. For example, Carlsen who is rated at 2861 would demolish anyone below 2800. In Cricket, you have a supposed 8th/9th rated WI almost winning a series against number 2 IND followed by literally toying with number 1 rated England.

    That's because of the type of game you are playing. For Chess, a difference of FIDE ranking 100, is lot, because in chess better players can take their time and plan. Make Chess a 16 move game there are many players even 2300 points might draw 2700+ player (or in rapid chess even can beat them).

    In Soccer, the scoring is different - 90 minutes hardly results in 3 goals, and lower ranked teams can survive with a draw. There are very few games where a lower ranked team actually has beaten directly within 90 minutes in International soccer.

    For cricket, the shorter the duration, it reduces the gap between teams. Today, I am sure IRL, SCT will be quite decent T20 team and they are surprising higher ranked teams in ODI as well .... in Test history, the biggest surprise was Robert Mughabe's ZIM beating PAK. In Test, higher ranked team gets 3 innings to recover one damaging innings - make Test matches 6 innings affair, that WIN or AUS side might not have lost a single Test in 12 years!!!!!

    By the way, FIFA has changed it's ranking system, it's much better now - friendlies hardly carry any point these days.

    Pakistan and India are the only two countries who have their top 3 in the top 15.
    Who would have thought that there would be a time where 3 of pakistan's batsmen will be in the top 15 but not a single pak bowler would even make the top 25??
    Disappointing to see Hasan go from no.1 to no.26.

    India captain Virat Kohli and fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah lead in the MRF Tyres ICC ODI Player Rankings going into the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2019 in England and Wales.

    Kohli enjoys a comfortable 41-point lead over his second-placed team-mate Rohit Sharma in the current rankings, which were updated last week after England’s 4-0 series victory over Pakistan, the Tri-series in Ireland, and Sri Lanka and Afghanistan’s tours of the British Isles.

    The top 10 for batsmen also has two each from New Zealand (Ross Taylor at third and Martin Guptill at 10th), South Africa (Quinton de Kock at fifth) and Faf du Plessis at sixth) and Pakistan (Babar Azam at seventh and Fakhar Zaman at ninth). Shai Hope of the West Indies and Joe Root of England are in fourth and eighth positions, respectively.

    Hope scored 470 runs in the Tri-series in Ireland, more than 200 runs more than anyone else, which propelled him up to a career-best fourth place with 808 points. The home side’s Paul Stirling – who struck 130 against Bangladesh – moved up five places to 25th and Soumya Sarkar – who helped Bangladesh win the tournament with a quick-fire innings of 66 from just 41 balls in the final at Malahide gained 10 places to reach 28th place.

    In the bowlers’ list, Bumrah also has compatriot wrist-spinners Kuldeep Yadav (seventh) and Yuzvendra Chahal (eighth) for company while South Africa has the pair of Imran Tahir and Kagiso Rabada in third and fourth positions. Trent Boult of New Zealand (second), Rashid Khan of Afghanistan (third), Pat Cummins of Australia (sixth), Chris Woakes of England (ninth) and Mujeeb Ur Rahman (10th) are the others in the top 10 dominated by wrist spinners.

    The Bangladesh spin twins Shakib and Mehedy Hasan Miraz also performed well in the Tri-series tournament, which resulted in useful gains. Shakib bowled economically, conceding just 4.31 runs per over to move up 10 places and back into the world’s top 20 bowlers. Mehedy conceded only 4.20 runs per over in the tournament, and ended in a career-best 22nd place.

    Jason Roy was the star in England’s high-scoring series win over Pakistan. He scored 277 runs in the series to move back into the world’s top 20, and is on the verge of moving past 700 points for the first time. Roy is part of a group of four England batsmen between 15th and 20th, which also includes Jonny Bairstow, Jos Buttler and Eoin Morgan.

    Each of Pakistan’s top three scored a century in the series, with Imam-ul-Haq moving up to a career-best 14th place as his career batting average moved past sixty. His opening partner Fakhar Zaman also reached a career-high with 768 points over the course of the series, and Babar Azam is also in the top 10 with the bat.

    Bowlers had a tougher time in the England v Pakistan series, with Chris Woakes a notable exception, as his figures of four for 67 at Bristol and five for 54 at Leeds took him back into the top ten for the first time since March 2018.

    Imad Wasim’s six wickets in the series have taken him up to a career-best 570 points in 28th place. Shaheen Shah Afridi was expensive but at least had the consolation of reaching a career-best 57th place with 473 points at the end of the series.

    Shakib is the top-ranked all-rounder at 559 points with Rashid only 20 behind and his compatriot Mohammad Nabi a further 20 behind at 519 points.

    The player rankings will be updated after the league phase of the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2019 and then again at the end of the tournament.

    England go into the 10-team tournament as the top side in the MRF Tyres ICC ODI Team Rankings with 125 points and India in second position four points behind.
