Top 10 Cricket Teams in the World

10. Afghanistan


Remember the record-setting 278/3 against Ireland on 23 February 2019? You know this team's potential. In 2016, they qualified for and won the World Cup. Later that year, they beat Scotland against all odds. Afghanistan won U-19 Asia, defeating Pakistan. Young prospects are the top clubs' dark horses as they continue to emerge.

09. Sri Lanka

Ceylon is one of the most decorated cricket teams. 1996 Cricket World Cup victors are looking to alter history. The Indian Ocean island has won ICC Champions Trophy in 2002 and ICC T20 World Cup in 2014. They've done it before and want to again. Dinuth Karunarathe, who can't stop hitting boundaries, gives them a chance to be title challengers.

08. West Indies

West Cricket

In the 1970s, the West Indies cricket squad was feared and called the Invisibles.  They won the T20 World Cup (2012 and 2016), ICC Champions Trophy (2004), and ICC Under-19 Cricket World Cup. The West Indies cricket team has renewed their zeal and determination to reclaim the top rank.

07. Bangladesh


We must see the 2012 Asia Cup to know the winning side. Those who doubted "The Tigers" can rest easy now.  Losses haven't lowered their morale, and players like Shakib Al Hasan have instilled hope in their fans. Recent information suggests Bangladesh will be scrutinized in upcoming games.

06. Pakistan


Pakistan's cricket squad must make the top 10 ranking. Their comeback has impressed many onlookers. They're merciless and always confident in their ability to win. Pakistan won the World Cup in 1991, the ICC World T20 in 2009, and the ODI rankings for months in 1990-1991. They're on track to repeat history.

05. South Africa

South Africa 

South Africa has been the top ODI side for nearly a decade and won the Champions Trophy in 1988. Led by Quinton de Kock, one of the most demanding leaders, they have appeared stable and enhanced their prospects to reclaim their legacy. They're one of the world's most experienced cricket teams, having played in practically every competition.

04. India


The Indian cricket team has been one of the most decorated for over a decade, with great players like Sachin Tendulkar and Sourav Ganguly. The "Men in Blue" have never lacked trophies due to their strong seasons and reign. If you want to know more about their success, Indian fans will tell you.

03. Australia


Australia is the most successful ODI team ever. Five World Cup wins prove their dominance. Aaron Finch, David Warner, Josh Hazlewood, and Mitchell Starc have shown that Australia can win the World Cup. They've won 383 of 814 games. They have launched their campaign full-force and look invincible.

02. England


The England cricket team has won the Cricket World Cup four times and the ICC T20 World Cup in 2010. "The Poms" are well-known in soccer and cricket. The England cricket squad has shocked many and exceeded fan expectations. Ben Stokes and Johhny Braistow are the county's best all-rounders.

01. New Zealand

New Zealand

New Zealand, the world champions, thrashed India in a 4-0 ODI series in 2014.  This New Zealand team has placed pressure on its opponents by playing the greatest cricket in a while. Trent Boult, Ross Taylor, Matt Henry, Kane Williamson, and Colin de Grandhomme are prominent ODI players. However, their win rates are mind-boggling.
