Is this the first step towards the Official World Rankings?

hi all...Im thinking you shouldnt add 9s to this ranking system...when you think of cricket rankings,there are now 3 different standing systems..you have the 20/twenty,50 overs and test rankings..you could be no1 in test rankings but be last in 50 overs etc(same game,same rules but totally different incertain ways) ....with footy 18s and 9s are the same game but these games are not a true reflection on a nations strength if a couple of aussies can dominate a 9s game for 1 nation....maybe 14 aside could lvl out the results with a few aussies but 9s could produce false results....dont add them and just let the nations build there own standing over the yrs...this ranking system is great just give it time

But if you're saying don't include 9s because of a few Aussies skewing the results, then I think that would be an argument to not include games with Aussies, not to exclude all 9s altogether.

Again, I agree if there were many nations playing 9s then it would deserve a separate rankings, but it is mostly limited to Europe, and only a few playing with all locals.
