ICC Test and One Day Championship Table

About the ICC Test Cricket Championship

A rating for each team is obtained by dividing their total points by their match/series total, with the answer given to the nearest whole number.

The match/series total for each team combines the number of Tests played and the number of series played (minimum series length two Tests). It includes all Tests played since August 2000 but for series completed prior to August 2002, this number is halved, so these earlier matches have a lower 'weighting'.

The number of points earned by a team for any given Test or series depends on two factors: the result (won, drawn/tied or lost) and the rating of the opponent against whom the result was achieved. The higher an opponent's rating, the more points are earned for beating them. Points are ‘weighted’ in the same way as the match/series total. A team that over the period being rated wins as often as it loses while playing an average mix of strong and weak opponents will have a rating of close to 100.

The Test Championship has been introduced to add interest, context and excitement to the game at the highest level. It will run on a rolling league basis, with the system used for calculating positions based on the results of the most recent series (a minimum of two Test series applies), home and away, between each of the teams.

The adoption of a co-ordinated 10 year calendar of future tours by all ICC members has created the long term structure on which to base the Test Championship. Source ICC

Test and One Day Cricket Table

About the ICC One Day Cricket  Championship

A team’s rating is worked out by dividing the points scored by the matches played, with the answer given to the nearest whole number.

After every ODI, the two competing teams each receive a certain number of  points, based on a mathematical formula. Each team's new points total is then  divided by its new matches total to give an updated rating.

Matches abandoned with no result are always ignored. Also, only ODIs between full members are rated, so matches involving the Netherlands, Canada or Namibia at the ICC Champions Trophy, World Cup or other such tournaments will not be  included.

The amount by which a team rating improves after winning an ODI depends on the rating of their opponent.

A win over a much stronger team (ie. one with a much higher rating than the  actual winning team) boosts the winner’s rating far more than beating a much weaker opponent.

Conversely, losing to a much stronger team will not cause the rating to drop too far, but losing to a weaker side would. The country with the highest rating  is officially regarded as the best ODI team in world cricket, and will hold a  specially commissioned ICC ODI Trophy, while it is in top position on the table.

Ratings Formula

After each match, the two teams each score a certain number of rating points. These points are then added to their existing total and used to generate their  updated ratings. The number of points a team scores is based on two factors:

  • the result of the match and
  • the gap between the ratings of the two teams going into the match.

There are two different formulas. One applies if the gap between the two teams' ratings is less than 40 points, the other if the gap is 40 points or more. The rating points you score from a particular ODI is as follows:

Case 1 - gap between the two teams' ratings is less than 40  points:

  • If you win, you score 50 points more than your opponent's rating
  • If you lose, you score 50 points less than your opponent's rating
  • If you tie, you score your opponent's rating


Case 2 - gap between the two teams' ratings is 40 points or  more:

  • If the stronger team wins, it scores 10 points more than its own rating  while the weaker team scores 10 points less than its own rating
  • If the weaker team wins, it scores 90 points more than its own rating while  the stronger team scores 90 points less than its own rating
  • If the match is tied, the stronger team scores 40 points less than its own rating and the weaker team scores 40 points more than its own rating
