Rating system details

The following table shows the conversion from rating difference to expected winning chances. Click here to view the table.

One day matches against and between test-playing nations are included in the rankings to try to provide an estimate of the difference in playing strength between the weaker test-playing nations and the stronger Associates.

The home ground advantage used for one-day matches is 152 points for Associates and 192 points for Affiliates. This equates to a 66% winning percentage for an Associate team playing at home against an equally matched opponent or 65% for an Affiliate.

The home ground advantage for Twenty20 matches is 84 points for Associates and 134 points for Affiliates. This equates to a 59% winning percentage for an Associate team playing at home against an equally matched opponent or 61% for an Affiliate.
