Bangladesh rise to 7th spot in ODI rankings

Dubai, June 25 (IANS) Bangladesh moved up a place to seventh in the One-Day International (ODI) team rankings following its series win against India in Mirpur.

The 2-1 series win put Bangladesh on 93 points — five behind sixth ranked England and five ahead of eighth ranked West Indies.

With England, plus seven next highest-ranked sides as on September 30 to qualify for the Champions Trophy 2017, Bangladesh now look set to qualify ahead of the West Indies, who have no ODI series planned until the cut-off date, and eighth-ranked Pakistan, who play Sri Lanka in a five-ODI series next month.

Mashrafe Mortaza’s men entered the India series in eighth position on 88 points, fraction of a point behind the West Indies.

In contrast, the 1-2 defeat means India have dropped from 117 to 115 but still retained their second position on the table. However, the series result means only 28 points separate India from ninth-ranked Pakistan. World Champions Australia lead the field, sitting pretty on 129 points.

Meanwhile, Brendon McCullum’s side entered the series on 115 points and were eyeing second place. However, they have remained in third position, marginally ahead of South Africa. On the other side, England, under the guidance of Eoin Morgan, have reduced fifth placed Sri Lanka’s advantage by four points to eight as they now sit on 98 points.

ODI Championship table:

1. Australia 129 points
2. India 115
3. New Zealand 112
4. South Africa 112
5. Sri Lanka 106
6. England 98
7. Bangladesh 93
8. West Indies 88
9. Pakistan 87
10. Ireland 50
