Who Invented ICC Team Rankings?

David Kendix created the  ICC Team Rankings, a grading system for men’s and women’s teams competing in Test, ODI, and T20I formats.

How does Men’s ODI Team Ranking Calculated?

  • The two teams engaged in each ODI match are awarded points based on a formula following the game.
  • All the teams are ranked in a table according to their ratings after dividing their combined point totals by the total number of matches they have played.
  • The points for winning an ODI match are always higher than the team’s rating, raising the rating, and the points for losing an ODI match are always lower than the rating, lowering the rating, using the analogy of cricket batting averages.
  • In a match between two teams with different rankings, the lower-ranked team will win and the higher-ranked team will lose.
  • A team with a rating of 100 should play a mix of stronger and weaker teams, winning as frequently as it loses.

Men’s ODI Team Ranking Calculation

  • Each team receives points based on the outcomes of its games played over the previous three to four years, with the matches played in the 12 to 24 months since May of the previous year and the 24 months prior counting equally for both the matches played and the points earned.
  • Every May, the matches and points from three to four years ago are eliminated, while the matches and points from one to two years ago are reduced from 100% to 50% weighting.

  • For instance, in May 2014, the matches from May 2010 and May 2011 were eliminated, while the matches from May 2012 and May 2013 were given a 50% weight.
  • This occurs overnight, therefore despite there being no games, teams’ rankings in the standings may change.

After a certain match, compute the teams’ new ratings for each team by first figuring out the points won.

If the difference between the two teams’ ratings prior to the game was less than 40 points

Match result Points earned
Win Opponent’s rating + 50
Tie Opponent’s rating
Lose Opponent’s rating − 50


If there was at least a 40-point difference in the two teams’ ratings before to the game:

Match result Points earned
Stronger team wins Own rating + 10
Stronger team loses Own rating − 90
Weaker team wins Own rating + 90
Weaker team loses Own rating − 10
Stronger team ties Own rating − 40
Weaker team ties Own rating + 40
  • Each team’s rating is calculated by dividing its total points by the total number of games it has participated in. (Series are not taken into account in these calculations.)
  • The match points are multiplied by the points already obtained (in prior matches, as represented by the Table), one is added to the total number of matches played, and the result is the new rating.
  • Because opponents’ ratings affect teams’ point totals, this method had to first give each team a starting base rating.
