The ICC ratings reveal the top 10 players who have shown dominance in the existing game. The ICC ranking table classifies the players based on a point system worked by a series of examinations. Each player is allocated points for every ODI match that they play. Then the average is estimated for all the ODI matches played during the concerned period. The final rating reflects the average run of the player.
