The ICC ratings reveal the top-ranking performers in the team who have shown their dominance in every match. The ICC ranking table classifies the players based on a point system worked by a series of examinations. Each player is allotted 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.
