One Day Internationals - Men
(Updated 1 Jan 2017)
New Zealand played six ODIs in December. They lost the first three matches in Australia against the home team, but then hosted Bangladesh in three games, winning all three. However, these wins were not enough to prevent them slipping one place on the table, from third into fourth.

South Africa finished the year at the top of the table for the first time since 2000. They had the best win-loss ratio, with 11 wins and one no-result from 17 matches. South Africa also were the most improved team during 2016, with their rating rising by 50 points.
