New Zealand could slip in ODI rankings in series against Sri Lanka

New Zealand
Kane Williamson's men take on Sri Lanka in three one-day internationals.

• Taylor top-ranked ODI player from either side, Boult, Williamson and Dickwella other leading names who would be looking to better their rankings in upcoming three-match series

New Zealand face the prospect of slipping down the MRF Tyres ICC Men’s ODI Team Rankings in their upcoming three-match home series against Sri Lanka starting on Thursday.

Having leapfrogged South Africa to third position in the Test rankings only last week with a 1-0 series win over Sri Lanka, they could now see South Africa overtake them to third place in the ODI table if New Zealand are unable to win all three matches against Sri Lanka.

New Zealand, currently ranked third with 112 points, will slip to 111 points and behind South Africa on decimal points if they win by a margin of 2-1 while a 3-0 win will lift them to 113 points. Sri Lanka will gain four points in the scenario of blanking the opposition but will remain 10 points adrift of seventh-placed Bangladesh even with such a huge verdict.

Series scenarios:

• New Zealand win 3-0 – New Zealand 113 points, Sri Lanka 78 points
• New Zealand win 2-1 – New Zealand 111, Sri Lanka 79
• Sri Lanka win 2-1 – New Zealand 108, Sri Lanka 81
• Sri Lanka win 3-0 – New Zealand 106, Sri Lanka 83

In the MRF Tyres ICC Men’s ODI Player Rankings, New Zealand’s experienced batsman Ross Taylor is top-ranked from either side in third position and would be looking to bridge the gap with the leading India pair of Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma. Captain Kane Williamson (10th) and Martin Guptill (14th) are the other two leading batsmen for the home side.

New Zealand’s fast bowlers Trent Boult (eighth) and Tim Southee (35th) would be looking to carry their form from the preceding Test series with Matt Henry (22nd) eyeing the chance to advance a couple of places with Tim Murtagh of Ireland and Moeen Ali of England within four points of his tally of 598 rating points.

For Sri Lanka, Niroshan Dickwella is the leading batsman in 27th position. Nuwan Pradeep (48th) and captain Lasith Malinga (49th) will be the leading bowlers in the absence of 12th-ranked spinner Akila Dananjaya, suspended from international cricket due to an illegal bowling action.
