As a result of their 3–0 series loss to Australia, England dropped to No. 2 on the ICC Men’s ODI Team Rankings, allowing New Zealand to take first place. The current ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup champions have faced back-to-back defeats and the journey from winning the 2022 ICC Men’s T20 World Cup to defeat in Australia happened in just 10 days. The number 1 spot in the ODI Team Rankings list has been reclaimed by New Zealand according to the latest ICC ODI rankings.
England were comfortably leading before the series began with 119 rating points, five more than New Zealand. However, they dropped six points after three consecutive defeats and eventually trailed New Zealand (114) with 113.
Australia were also rewarded for their outstanding performance. They moved up one spot, passing Pakistan, who had 107 rating points, to take over fourth place with 112 points. As a result, India and Australia are now tied in rating points with India having a higher overall score.
With 112 rating points and 3802 total points, India ranks third. Australia is in fourth place with 112 and 3572 points in total.
England will have another chance to regain top spot in January 2023 when they head to South Africa for a three-match series.
