Rating system details

The rankings take into account the final result of a match (win, draw, loss, tie) as well as whether the match was played on a home, away or neutral ground. The home team is considered to have a 131 point advantage for a one day match or a 60 point advantage for a Twenty20 match. Between two equally matched teams, this equates to the home side scoring 61% in one day internationals or 56% in Twenty20 matches.
