Rating system details

To be included in the rankings, a country must have played seven or more one day or Twenty20 matches, or six or more multi-day matches. At least one of the matches must have been played in the last five years, or last ten years for multi-day matches, and the team must not have lost all of their matches. The ranking system takes into account home ground advantage and the type of match, e.g. World Cup matches are rated for highly than normal ODIs.

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.
