    1. Those numbers are simply the amount of points each team would have in the May ranking, depending on the result of their match on 28 April. Since Zambia beat Zimbabwe, they will have 628 points and Zimbabwe will have 330 points in May.

  2. I would be interested in seeing a revised version of the rankings which excluded all WINS that actually lower a team's ranking score from the calculation. It would be interesting to see how much certain countries are being "lowered" by having to play very weak teams.

    1. I'll look into it depending on my time.
