The ICC T20I Rankings, also known as the ICC T20I Championship is a ranking system devised by the International Cricket Council (ICC) to rank every T20 international team according to a mathematical algorithm. Only those teams which have played a minimum of eight T20Is between 1st August of last three to four years are awarded a place in the ranking system.
In the system, the total of each team’s points is divided by the total number of matches played by the team to give a rating.
Having won the T20I home series against Sri Lanka and the away series against South Africa in 2017-18, India began to assert their supremacy in the shortest format. They went on to win the Nidahas Trophy before winning 2-1 in England. India whitewashed the West Indies 3-0 at home and drew 1-1 in Australia to secure the second spot in the ICC T20 rating. With so many matches to be played ahead of the next year's T20 world cup, it would be interesting to see who sits at the top by the end of next year.
India holds the top spot in ICC T20 Ratings after beating England who were on a winning streak of 8 T20 Series. Pakistan currently holds the third spot.
