Sat, Jul 21, '12
Bangladesh's exciting one-run win over Ireland on Friday, which gave them an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match series, also catapulted them to No. 6 in the ICC Twenty20 rankings - this is the first time Bangladesh feature in the rankings. They are now ahead of New Zealand, India and West Indies, while Ireland, who were in ninth position, drop a place to tenth.
