With new teams like Afghanistan, Nepal, and Ireland making their presence felt, all the elites of ICC ranking need to be on their game to maintain their positions in the ICC Ranking 2018, especially in the T20I format. ICC T20 Team Ranking is perhaps the most fluctuating in terms of ICC Ranking T20 2018 for  as it changes with every T20I match given the less number of T20I matches being played.

Ever since the inception of ICC Ranking, there have been 5-6 teams who have been the top teams in the ICC Ranking and it continues to be a similar case in the ICC Ranking 2018 where Australia, India, South Africa, England, New Zealand, and Pakistan are by far the top 6 teams in International cricket with rest of the chasing pack trying to bring them down. One of the biggest diminution in terms of ICC Ranking 2018 has come from Sri Lanka who has fallen to the 8th place in the ICC Ranking 2018 for T20I cricket. ICC Ranking T20 2018 has seen Pakistan and Australia set high standards in terms of T20I cricket where Pakistan defeated New Zealand in the T20I series while Australia defeated England and New Zealand to win the tri-series T20I competition and have moved in touching distance with Pakistan in the ICC Ranking T20 2018. India have climbed to 3rd spot in the ICC Ranking T20 2018 after their T20I series win against South Africa.

ICC Ranking 2018 – Trouble for England and South Africa

On paper, England and South Africa possess some of the best T20 players in the world but both the teams have been struggling in the ICC T20 Team Ranking for the year 2018. South Africa lost the T20I series at their home against India while England failed to make it to the finals of the Trans-Tasman T20I tri-series in Australia and New Zealand. England are 6th in the ICC Ranking T20 2018 with 114 rating points while South Africa are 7th in the ICC Ranking T20 2018 with 11 rating points.

India ICC T20 Ranking – Kohli aiming to take the team to the top

India have the most number of rating points with 4341 points to their name but they still are 3rd in the ICC T20 Team Ranking despite their win over South Africa and triumphant run in the Nidahas Trophy 2018. With the skipper Virat Kohli in the best form of his career and batsmen like Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan in his support, India ICC T20 Ranking will only improve in coming weeks. Indian players have a huge advantage of playing in the Indian Premier League (IPL) and gain vital T20 experience which showed with India sending their fringe squad for the Nidahas Trophy and yet winning it against Sri Lanka and Bangladesh. Nidahas Trophy saw the emergence of Washington Sundar, Vijay Shankar, and Shardul Thakur which will definitely help India ICC T20 Ranking in the future as they have several options to mix and match with T20 squads. Indian fans must be hoping to see their team reach the top of ICC Ranking 2018 in T20I cricket as India are already the number side in the ICC Ranking 2018 in both Test and ODI formats. ICC Ranking T20 2018 is the next goal for Team India and toppling Pakistan to become the number one team in T20I cricket would be another motivation for Team India.

ICC T20 2018 – Afghanistan will continue to rise higher

Afghanistan have surprised everyone with their consistent rise in the T20I format with players like Rashid Khan, Mohd Nabi and Mohd Shahzad continuing to win them the important games. Afghanistan are ranked 9th in ICC Ranking T20 2018 and are just 1 point behind Sri Lanka who are in 8th place in T20I format in the ICC T20 Team Ranking. ICC Ranking 2018 has seen Rashid Khan dominate the headlines in last few months and his performance will definitely help Afghanistan to rise higher in the ICC T20 Team Ranking. After narrowly missing out on the ICC 2019 World Cup qualification, Afghanistan must set their target in the T20I format and rise above Sri Lanka in the ICC Ranking T20 2018 to continue their progression in the shortest format of the game.
