Ireland have jumped to 10th place – replacing Test nation Zimbabwe in the latest I.C.C  Reliance ODI rankings just released.

It is Ireland’s highest place in the World rankings and takes into account last week’s sensational win against England.

That win has other significance too since at the next ICC Congress there is likely to be a move to reduce future World Cup ODI competitions to 10 Nations.
