Australia remain on top of both tables with Thailand, Denmark and Mexico big movers
Dubai: Australia’s consistent performances have ensured a tight grasp on the top spots of both women’s ODI and T20I rankings tables’ after the annual updates carried out on Monday.
In the first annual updates since the introduction of the women’s global T20I rankings in October last year led to separate rankings for the two formats, Australia have retained their lead of 26 points over India in the MRF Tyres ICC Women’s ODI Player Rankings and done even better in the shorter format.
Australia, who won the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup in the West Indies last year, have increased their lead over England from 10 to 14 points in the MRF Tyres ICC Women’s T20I Player rankings, a table that has increased from 46 to 55 teams over the past year.
Though there are no changes at the top of the T20I table, Thailand have moved to within four points of 10th placed Ireland after a remarkable run saw them win a world record 17 consecutive matches earlier this year, breaking the previous record of 16 successive wins by Australia.
