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 is 106 points for Associates and 139 points for Affiliates. This equates to a 61% winning percentage for a team playing at home against an equally matched opponent.
