Top international cricketers have thrown their weight behind the ICC T20I team and player rankings, which were officially launched, on Monday, saying it will give more meaning to one-off matches and also provide the players a good chance to assess their game.

Reigning ICC World Twenty20 champion England was unveiled as the No. 1 ranked side while Eoin Morgan of England, Sri Lanka's Ajantha Mendis and Australia's Shane Watson were announced the top-ranked batsman, bowler and all-rounder, respectively, on Monday.
