India has retained its second position in the Women’s ODIs as per the updated rankings released by ICC on Monday. The England team which had lost all the ODIs that they had played at home against Australia as part of the Women’s Ashes, continue to remain one place below India, although the difference between the two teams has widened to a 3-rating gap. (India- 125, England- 122)
West Indies have lost 5 points (79) and remain on 6th while Pakistan is at the 7th position with two points less (77).
New Zealand (110) and South Africa (98) have taken the 4th and 5th positions respectively while dominant Australia continues to top the tables in both ODI and T20I formats.
In T20I, Australian women, who are always a notch above others, have increased their lead (293) over second-placed England (279) to 14 ratings. India continues to remain in the 5th position (252) in this format, below New Zealand (276) and West Indies (258) who are stationed at 3rd and 4th position respectively. India is closely followed by South Africa (241) and Pakistan (228) who are at 6th and 7th positions in the table.
One of the big gainers is Thailand (161) who is ranked 11th on the T20I table, courtesy their consecutive wins in matches earlier this year. They have also qualified for the upcoming Women’s T20 World Cup to be held in Australia next year.
