In the latest ICC ODI team rankings Bangladesh have moved to the 7th place after beating India in the first One day International yesterday in Mirpur, Dhaka. Bangladesh have increased their chances of playing the Champions Trophy 2017. It is fight between Bangladesh, Pakistan and West Indies. Bangladesh, in recent past, has been in great form beating Pakistan 3-0, followed by the thumping of mighty Indians by 79 runs which shows that Bangladesh are no pushovers and should be taken seriously. Bangladesh have two more One day Internationals against India and three more against South Africa. Bangladesh has jumped above Pakistan and West Indies.

While on the other Australia is at the top of chart with 129 points. They don’t have any One day Internationals to play, India is at second position they lost a point after losing to Bangladesh in the first ODI match. India is at 116 points. NewZealand is at the 3rd place and with 1 match left against England they might come second if India loses their remaining two ODIs.

In the fourth place South Africa are placed with 112 points. Their next One day international series is against Bangladesh. Fifth placed is Sri Lanka. Their next ODI Series is against Pakistan which will take place after the Test series. Sri Lanka is on 106 points. England are 6th and are doing an excellent job against NewZeleand; playing some excellent cricket. They are on 96 points.

Bangladesh is on 7th position after the win over India in the first One day Internationals. Bangladesh needs to secure one win in the remaining five matches that include two against India and three against South Africa.

West Indies are 8th on the table with 88 points but they will not play One day internationals before September. If West Indies don’t qualify for Champions Trophy this will be very bad news for West Indies cricket as it will be the first time that they might miss a major tournament.

Pakistan who is 9th on the points table with 87 points. Their next ODI series is against Sri Lanka which will see them take on Lankan lions in a five match series and Pakistan need to win that series to have any chance of qualifying for the prestigious tournament. It will be interesting to see which one of these bottom half teams qualify for 2017 Champions Trophy.
