Associate and Affiliate cricket rankings are often neglected by mainstream media. On CricketPasifika you can find the major rankings systems currently in service: The ICC, Alistair Gordon’s and Shane Booth’s.
The official International Cricket Council rankings for men can be found here and for women here, however they are rarely up to date, limited in the number of countries represented and are not often a good reflection of the standard of cricket.

Associate and Affiliate Ranking Systems
Alistair Gordon’s Ranking
There are two quality ranking systems currently in service for Associate and Affiliate Cricket. The first, Alistair Gordon’s ranking system, has a separate One Day, Twenty20 and a third combined ranking of both One Day and T20. His website is updated on the first of each month and can be found at http://www.worldcricketrankings.com/.
Shane Booth’s Ranking
The second of the ranking systems is the most complete ranking system that I have come across. Shane Booth’s system is like Gordon’s in that it has a One Day and Twenty20 ranking, however Booth’s has one for Men and Women and also one for Men’s Multi Day Cricket too.
