ICC confirms Bangladesh promotion in ODI ranking
The ICC has confirmed Bangladesh's rise to sixth position in the ODI team ranking. Cricket's world governing body made the confirmation with a media release on Thursday. The Tigers made history in Dublin on Wednesday by moving to sixth in the ranking for the first time following their five-wicket victory over fourth-ranked New Zealand. The victory put Bangladesh on par with Sri Lanka on 93 rating points. But when the ratings are calculated beyond the decimal point, Bangladesh are ranked above Sri Lanka as the former have 93.3 rating points compared to the latter's 92.8 rating points. This is the first time Bangladesh have been ranked ahead of three former world champions - Sri Lanka, Pakistan, the West Indies – and Zimbabwe. Bangladesh now lead eighth-ranked Pakistan by five rating points and the ninth-placed West Indies by 14 rating points. This timely boost in ranking will further provide impetus to the young Bangladesh side which will go head-to-head with host England in the 2017 Champions Trophy opener on Thursday. With September 30, 2017 being the cut-off date for direct qualification for the 2019 World Cup, Bangladesh are in a strong position to be one of the seven automatic qualifiers, apart from host England, to make it to the prestigious event.
