    PwC is no more

    After 18 years, PwC no longer sponsor the ratings.

    The good thing though appears to be that the ICC are now promoting them as official ratings!

    Just noticed this myself. Good to know that the ICC are promoting them as official ratings.

    Good riddance.
    Its annoying to see such a flawed rating system dominate the cricketing opinions to such a degree.

    Surely that will be even more the case if the ICC is now promoting them as official rankings...

    I found this out as well, just a day after they said to check back later for updates for the SA-England 4th Test and Bangladesh-Zim series. Went to the ICC site, but could find nothing relating to player ratings. Anyone know the link? Cheers.

    www.cricketratings.com links directly to the site. I have checked and it looks like it hasn't been updated yet. It also looks like the ODI ratings have disappeared.

    I imagine the changeover is taking some time because the ICC are working out more ways to punish players for minor things wholst ignoring major issues!

    I have been skeptical occasionally about their ranking system, but they have been regarded for several years as the most reliable ranking system, and hence had grown to accept it !!

    I am not sure that ICC can do a better ranking system than the World's leading number crunchers !! (Price Waterhouse Coopers that is, being the leading Accounting and Management Consultants world wide! Although their competitors such as Anderson Consulting, Deloitte Tohmatsu, KPMG etc may dispute this ! )

    They don't back up his pre-formed notions about the game. For example, the ratings might at one point or another indicate that the best bowler in the world is someone other than the one with the lowest average.

    They appear to have been updated. Also, there is a one day link.

    Looks like LG is taking over sponsorship of the Ratings.

    I like 'em, bit of harmless fun. No-one claims they're the be-all & end-all of cricket, just a chance for one to indulge one's more anorak-ish tendencies!

    A quick Q, how come Ian Bell, who has played one innings has a highest rating of 403, whilst Geriant Jones, whilst having a lean time lately, has scored a test hundred and more, has a highest rating of 392. How come Bell's innings of 70 gave him such a high rating but Jones' hundred didnt?
