England vs Ireland series will affect the ICC ODI rankings
With defending World Cup champions England set to begin their ICC Cricket World Cup Super League with a three-match ODI series against Ireland, a lot of England's limited-overs specialists will be looking to rise higher in the ICC ODI rankings.
Jason Roy and Jonny Bairstow have been the undisputed opening pair for England ever since the 2019 World Cup and have destroyed many bowling attacks. They will be looking to enter the top 10 among batsmen with their current ranks being 11th and 14th respectively.
England skipper Eoin Morgan will be leading England for the first time against the country that he played for earlier and will also be looking to improve on his 23rd rank.Published 28 Jul 2020, 22:46 IST
