The ICC have added Nepal, Scotland, Netherlands and the United Arab Emirates to the ODI rankings list effective from 1 June.
They join the 12 other ranked sides to extend the list to 16 teams.
The Netherlands secured ODI status and a place in the 13-team ODI league by winning the ICC World Cricket League Championship last year, while Scotland, Nepal and the UAE earned their status by finishing as the three leading Associates (along with the Dutch) in the ICC Cricket World Cup Qualifier 2018.
Scotland are 13th on 28 points – 10 points behind 12th ranked Ireland – while the UAE are another 10 points behind on 18 in 14th. The Netherlands have 13 rating points and Nepal have zero, but they will reflect on the ICC ODI team rankings table after both have played four more ODIs.
Teams earn points from each match they play against oppositions with an ODI rating. Points and matches played between 1 May 2015 and 30 April 2017 will be weighted at 50%, whereas matches played after 1 May 2017 will be weighted at 100%.
The positions of the 12 Test-playing countries, who were already on the table, are not affected by the introduction of these new teams on the table.
The table is headed by England, who will host next year’s ICC Cricket World Cup. India are ranked second, three points behind England, while ICC Champions Trophy winners Pakistan are in sixth place.
* The initial rankings for the four new teams are based on: all ODIs played since May 2015 by Scotland and the UAE against Full Members and against each other; Non-ODIs played by the Netherlands and Nepal against Full Members, Scotland and the UAE as part of the ICC World Cup Qualifying tournament 2018
