Jamaica slips one place in world netball rankings

Jamaica has slipped one place to fourth in the latest International Netball Federation (INF) world rankings after being overtaken by England.

The Sunshine Girls were elevated above England in the previous rankings on May 29.

Australia has retained its position as the top team in the world.

However, New Zealand is closing the gap in second place.

Matches played between July 1, 2017 and June 30, 2019, now have a 50 percent weighting, while those played from July 1, 2019 onwards have the full weighting of 100 percent.

In light of the cancellation and postponement of matches due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the INF board decided to reduce the number of matches required to obtain a ranking from eight to six.

The top 10 reads: Australia, New Zealand, England, Jamaica, South Africa, Malawi, Uganda, Scotland, Wales and Trinidad and Tobago.
