In the history of 138 years of cricket, for the first time Afghanistan has entered into top 10 rankings of ICC One day International rankings. Afghanstan has shown lots of improvement and before the first match against Zimbabwe on 24th December was at 12th position but with a win over Zimbabwe in the first One day International has helped them to jump to 10th place in the rankings.

The first position is occupied by Australia with 127 points, followed by India with 114 points. India will face Australia in a 5 match One day International series from 12th January. A win for India will help reduce the gap with World Champions Australia.

The third place is occupied by semi finalist of World Cup 2015, South Africa with 112 points, followed by New Zealand who reached the finals of World Cup 2015 with 110 points. The fifth place is occupied by Sri Lanka. Sri Lanka is playing New Zealand in a 5 match One day International series and a series loss will see them slip in the rankings.

The 6th place is occupied by England with 101, followed by Bangaldesh who had an excellent 2015 winning all the home series against Pakistan, South Africa, India and Zimbabwe.

The 8th place is occupied by Pakistan who qualified for the Champions Trophy 2017, followed by West Indies who occupies the 9th place who missed the Champions Trophy birth for the first time.
