Ireland ranked No. 10 by the ICC
Ireland are now the tenth-best one-day team in the world, according to the latest ICC ODI rankings announced on Sunday. They are now ranked above Zimbabwe, who have won only one of their last 19 ODIs, and Kenya.
Ireland became eligible for inclusion in the rankings courtesy of their World Cup wins over Pakistan and Bangladesh. Under the ICC's rules, an Associate has to beat two Full Member countries - as well as meeting other criteria - to be included.
Australia's streamroller ride in the World Cup means that they remain at the top of the pile, ahead of South Africa, who briefly usurped them on the eve of the competition.
