Rankings in Women’s T20I cricket

Now that the world T20I championship is over, we look at the ICC rankings which take these results into account:

Womens T20I top

Here we see India is 4th, after Australia, England and New Zealand and above semi-finalist South Africa.

An interesting point is that Thailand is ranked 11th, which is creditable as the country has little cricketing tradition. Their men’s team is ranked 66th !

Looking at the bottom of the same table:

Womens T20I top

Four teams (ranked 56 to 59) have zero points. However, Fiji really deserves the bottom position as their team has played 12 matches for zero points. Norway and Mali played 6 matches each and Lesotho 3, so they can be said to be marginally better 🙂

Looking at ODI rankings, India’s women fare a little better:
