ICC Confirms Tigers’ ranking position

Bangladesh cricket team reached their best ever ranking position as they ascended to sixth in the ICC one-day international team rankings for the first time overtaking Sri Lanka, said an ICC press release on Thursday.

Bangladesh made history in Dublin on Wednesday when they clinched a five- wicket victory over fourth-ranked New Zealand to jump in the ranking.

The victory has put Bangladesh at par with Sri Lanka on 93 points, but when the ratings are calculated beyond the decimal point, Bangladesh are ranked above Sri Lanka as they 93.3 points as compared to Sri Lanka’s 92.8.

This is the first time Bangladesh have been ranked ahead of three former world champions – Sri Lanka, Pakistan, the West Indies.
