Do you get extra points because we are beating a side that is second place in the odi rankings?
Yes. The better the side the more 'weighted' the points are. Also, based on last series result. For instance, if you beat Bangladesh/West Indies 5-0 last time around but only beat them 4-1 in the next series you'd lose points. Unless of course one of the sides has drastically shot up the table. Which Bangladesh and West Indies haven't. Which is why I think irottev could be wrong about NZs next 2 series pushing them up to 2nd, though I may be wrong. I presume they whitewashes Bangladesh in their last series, what about vs the WI?
