Melbourne: Minnows Ireland have leapfrogged Zimbabwe in the one-day international cricket rankings after their stunning Cricket World Cup win over England.

The sensational victory in Bangalore earned Ireland, a second-tier, or associate member of the International Cricket Council, enough points to move into 10th position in the rankings.

Zimbabwe is a full member of the ICC with Test and one-day international status but are currently inactive in Tests.

Australia remain the No.1-ranked side, with Cricket World Cup joint hosts India in second place. Sri Lanka are up to third place.
