Windies hold steady in ICC ranking

DUBAI – West Indies have held steady in the ICC Men’s World Rankings across all three formats of international cricket after the annual update carried out on Wednesday.

The ICC (International Cricket Council), the sport’s world governing body, revealed in a media release that the Windies were eighth in the Test rankings, ninth in Oneday Internationals, and seventh in Twenty20 Internationals after the rankings update, remaining firmly fixed in the positions they held before the update.

Rating points earned from winning matches during the 2018-19 season were dropped in the annual update, the ICC media release stated, and the rankings now reflect all series completed since May 2019.

The ICC media release noted that series completed prior to May 2021 are now weighted at 50 per cent and subsequent series at 100 per cent. (CMC)
