ICC ODI Rankings

In the most recent annual update of the ICC ODI Team Rankings, New Zealand has replaced England as the top-ranked ODI team.

The Blackcaps have climbed two places to first, while England has dropped from first to fourth. Australia has climbed two places to second place, while India has dropped to third place, just a few decimal points ahead of England.

South Africa is in fifth place, while Pakistan and Bangladesh are in sixth and seventh place, respectively. West Indies has risen to eighth place from ninth, while Sri Lanka has slipped to ninth place.

Note that the annual rankings are revised at the beginning of May each year, and the rating period is re-calibrated to include only results from the previous three years.

The rating system is no longer influenced by results prior to May 1, 2018. Matches played after May 2020 are given their maximum weighting, with results from the 2018/19 and 2019/20 seasons weighted at 50%.

In T20Is, England is still in first place and has a five-point advantage over India. New Zealand has advanced up to third place, replacing Australia, while Pakistan remains in fourth place.

Following the end of the ongoing Pakistan v Zimbabwe series, the Test rankings will be updated.
