ICC Men’s T20I rankings: India maintain top spot, huge boost for Rohit Sharma’s men ahead of T20 World Cup

In the updated ICC Men's T20I rankings, India remain seven points above Australia.

India on Friday consolidated their position at the top in the ICC Men’s T20I rankings, meaning Rohit Sharma’s team will take the field in the upcoming T20 World Cup as the number one team in the format. The updated rankings will provide a lot of confidence for Rohit Sharma’s team going into the gala tournament.

Although Australia overtook India in the updated Test rankings, India remained comfortably on top in the two white-ball formats. In the updated ICC Men’s T20I rankings, India remain seven points above Australia. The Men in Blue are at 264 rating points, with Pat Cummins’s Australia trailing Rohit Sharma’s team by seven points, at 257.

Can India end ICC trophy drought?

It is a matter of a huge confidence booster to go into an ICC tournament as the number one team of the format. It has been over a decade since India last won an ICC trophy, with the last one coming in 2013. India have named a strong 15-man side for the tournament, and being the number one team in the format, it will be expected that Rohit Sharma’s men return with the trophy.
