Kiwis snach No.1 ODI Ranking from England


Dubai: New Zealand have replaced England as the No.1 ranked ODI side in the latest annual update of ICC ODI Team Rankings.
Blackcaps climbed two spots to first while England has slipped from the top spot down to fourth. Australia has also climbed two positions to second, with India sliding to third, just ahead of England by decimal points.
South Africa stands at fifth while Pakistan and Bangladesh are at 6, 7 respectively. Further down the rankings, West Indies have climbed to eighth from ninth, with Sri Lanka going the other way.
Note, the annual rankings are updated at the start of May each year, the rating period is recalibrated so only results from the past three years are taken into consideration.
Results prior to 1 May 2018 no longer influence the rating method. Results from the 2018/19 and 2019/20 seasons are weighted at 50 percent, with matches since May 2020 given their full weighting.
In T20Is, England remain No.1 and have extended their lead over India to five points. New Zealand have moved up from fifth to third, swapping places with Australia while Pakistan retain the fourth spot.
The Test rankings update will be carried out following the conclusion of the ongoing Pakistan v Zimbabwe series.
