Dawid Malan from England ranked top in the list of men’s T20I batting rankings. After that, ICC placed L Rahul and veteran Aaron Finch stand at third position.
KL also performed well in IPL and the player continued his form. The player is expected to score more with his wide range of shot selection. Glen Maxwell and Babar Azam are now in fourth and fifth position.
Maxwell disappoints KXIP with his performance in IPL. However, in an encounter with team India, the player performed really well and managed to climb in ranking. On the other hand, Babar Azam with his consistency stays in the ranking. In the bowling section, Rashid Khan is now in top position.
The bowler is known for troubling batsmen for versatility even in death over. He also takes wickets regularly. That’s why he stays at the top for some years. For recent good performance, Tabraiz Shamsi is now in the second position. Mujeeb and Adil are now at third and fourth positions.
England topped the ICC T20 rankings released this year with 275 points. Team Australia is known for consistent performance in all forms of cricket. The team finished second in the T20 with 272 points. Team Virat Kohli finished third with 268 points. Team Pakistan came after Team India. Pakistan, South Africa, and New Zealand are sixth on the list. It can be said that all six teams are strong enough to change their position.
In particular, Team New Zealand can quickly move up the rankings. Meanwhile, the team has improved its performance in Sri Lanka and is currently seventh. The team has a handful of experienced skills. So we believe the team cannot improve in the near future. Bangladesh, which may be disappointing, is currently ranked eighth. However, with Shakib’s return, the team could improve its position.
At the very least, they can put them ahead of the Sri Lankan team. Afghanistan can hurt any team in T20 cricket. The team has improved considerably and the team has a lot of stars, especially the spinners. However, the team is repeatedly disappointed when they play against teams like India, Australia, England, and New Zealand.
Now I am in ninth place. Team West Indies finished last in the top ten due to lack of access to many players. Yet top players don’t want to play regularly. As a result, they do not expect to improve their position anytime soon.
How to calculate team rankings
The ranking system of the ICC team is a bit difficult for many to understand, especially the grade of points after each match. All ICC calculations are automated and the ranking algorithm is maintained accordingly. You can only understand how the system works.
For this reason, it is important to understand the methods and factors before criticizing the rankings. Or, the rankings may be a little surprising, especially if the top five teams are always in the next game. Teams are rated based on 0-100 points in the ICC rankings.
