The INF has updated its rankings to reflect matches played during the Asian Netball Championships which took place in Thailand, the Celtic Clash between Scotland and Northern Ireland, and a Test Match between St Maarten and Argentina.
There is no change to the ranking for the top eighteen teams, however following the Asian Championships, Malaysia moves three places up to 19 and Thailand comes back into the rankings at 29.
As a result of Argentina’s match against St Maarten, Argentina now enters the rankings at 35, becoming the first ever South American country to have a world ranking.
St Maarten has now played two ranking matches and will qualify for a world ranking if six more games are played within the qualifying period.
