LONDON, England (CMC) — West Indies Women have remained fifth in the latest International Cricket Council women's team rankings, but have dropped four points following their wretched run at the recent 50-over World Cup in England.

The Windies Women were on 101 points behind new table leaders England, who gained three points to overtake Australia at the top.

England won the World Cup when they beat India in the final by nine wickets at Lords last July, while Australia reached the semi-finals before losing to India.

India remained fourth but jumped three points to 116 to close in on third spot held by New Zealand on 118 points.

West Indies entered the World Cup as one of the favourites following their capture of the Twenty20 World Cup last year, but failed to live up to expectations, finishing sixth only above Pakistan and Sri Lanka.

They lost their first four games and five overall, ending on four points and exiting the tournament early.

The Caribbean side will launch their bid for direct qualification for the 2021 World Cup when they take on Sri Lanka Women in a three-match ODI series in Trinidad and Tobago from October 11-15.
