ICC To Combine Women’s Rankings

The ICC have announced that in future their player rankings for women’s cricket will be combined across all three formats of the game – Test, ODI and T20.

This replaces the current system whereby separate rankings were produced for ODIs and T20s.

With fewer matches overall, and almost all leading players playing all formats, it was felt that a combined system made more sense; as well as adding more clarity to the system from a marketing perspective – there will now be just one “Number One” bowler and batsman in women’s cricket.

The new “Combined Number Ones” (not yet officially announced) are likely to be Meg Lanning (Batting) and West Indies’ Anisa Mohammed (Bowling).
