Now that the world T20I championship is over, we look at the ICC rankings which take these results into account:
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:
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:
Here they are ranked second, after Australia but ahead of England and New Zealand.
We also look at individual rankings in T20I as on March 10:
