The International Cricket Council (ICC) publishes Men’s Test Rankings for Batsmen, Bowlers, and All-Rounders on a regular basis to recognize and honor individual players’ efforts in the game’s longest format. A points system is used to generate these rankings, which take into account a player’s runs, wickets, and overall performance in Test matches. These rankings provide insight into players’ present status as well as a baseline for their future performance. The rankings are updated following each Test series and provide a comprehensive analysis of the world’s greatest players across all three categories. Test cricket is regarded as the sport’s peak, and these rankings represent players who have consistently performed well in the format and have been able to retain their form over time.

Who developed ICC Ranking System?

In 1987, Ted Dexter made a recommendation that led to the creation of the ratings.

When are the rankings updated?

The Test rankings are typically updated by the ICC after each Test match (often within 12 hours) and the ODI ratings at the conclusion of each ODI series. However, if another Test match is taking place, the rankings are typically not released.

How ICC Men’s Test Batsmen Rankings calculated?

Not Out but Not In (Bonus points are given to Not out players)

Ratings of the opposition bowling attack; the value of the batsman’s innings is proportionately increased the higher the total ratings of the bowling attack.

More runs, or bonus points, are determined by runs scored. More credit will be given for a century in the second inning than the first.

Whichever point runs are scored. A player receives more rating points if he or she scores runs during a time of crisis for his or her team.

The number of runs scored during the game. A player’s 100 runs in this innings are worth less than they would in a low-scoring match if both teams score just 150 runs since the algorithm would rank a match as high scoring if both teams score 500 in an innings.

A player receives bonus points if his side wins the game and he scores more runs than the opposition. However, extra points will be awarded if the team defeats a powerful opponent.
