As the game of cricket evolves amid decreasing attention spans and altering consumer interests, the popularity of the T20 format continues to rise. Having the option to watch a match that ends in 200 minutes flat entices viewers and administrators alike, and that has been reflected in the mushrooming of a plethora of domestic T20 leagues too. 

The International Cricket Council's T20I Player Rankings are a sound metric to evaluate the standing of international cricketers across nationalities in the shortest format of the game. The players' performances are ranked using a points-based system which involves several calculations that lead up to a sophisticated moving average. 

Players are rated on a scale of 0 to 1000 points. If a player’s performance is an improvement on their record, the points increase, and similarly if the performance declines then the points go down. 

The value of each player’s performance in a match is calculated through an algorithm, involving a pre-programmed series of calculations based on numerous circumstances in the match. There is no human intervention in this calculation process, and no subjective assessment is made.
