    I know,I know.

    Before the Perth test Smith's rating was 939.He scores 239 (bats once only and averages 239 for the test) and jumps up 6 places to 945.

    Now in Melbourne scores 76 & 102* respectively for an average of 178 and for his troubles goes up 2 places to 947.I was at least expecting 949 to be honest after the test was over and he got the red ink.

    He had to score 417 runs to go from 939 to 947.Man, to ascend upwards in the ratings at an exponential rate is just incredibly tough at this rarefied air now.Even if he scores 50 & 50 in Sydney it'll probably actually lower his ranking instead of increasing it.


    If he does peak at 947 it'd be cool if a bat sponsor gets on board and he has ''947' splashed across his bat when he goes out to bat in the future.

    Is there somewhere that explains how the ICC rankings actually work?

    I have read a bit about the process and because it was harder or more accurately more wickets for runs scored Smith received more points from Perth than Melbourne.

    The level of run-scoring in the match, and the team’s innings total; an innings of 100 runs in a match where all teams scored 500 is worth less than 100 runs in a match where all teams were bowled out for 200. And if a team scores 500 in the first innings and 200 in the second innings, a century in the second innings will get more credit than in the first innings (because the general level of run scoring was higher in the first innings)

    Virat Kohli is sitting at 912 points now. Only Gavaskar among Indian batsmen have achieved a higher rating (916 points).
