Eoin Morgan's side is four points behind table-topper New Zealand, which is on 125 points after dropping two points, the International Cricket Council (ICC) said in a media release on Tuesday (May 2).

India, the ICC World Twenty20 2007 champion, have also lost ground following the annual update after dropping six points to slip to fourth position.

They are now on 118 points, three points behind ICC World Twenty20 2009 winner Pakistan, which has joined England on 121 points after gaining five points but is ranked behind the ICC World Twenty20 2010 winner by a fraction of a point.

Australia and the next nine highest-ranked sides on the T20I Team Rankings will qualify automatically for the ICC World Twenty20 2020 which will be staged in Australia.

The bottom eight sides on the team rankings will get a second chance to qualify for the seventh edition of the tournament when they will join the regional qualifiers in the ICC World Twenty20 Qualifier 2019. Six sides will qualify from the qualifier to complete the 16-team line-up.
