Legends Ranking Points System
The Legends Ranking system is a collective score based on the overall performance of a retired player in T20 tournaments.
The player's overall match score, overall individual score, and the number of wickets taken for each match will be taken into consideration in deciding the ranking.
The weightage has also been given to the stature of the opposition team. Other important factors and attributes include the strike rate and average of a player, along with the opponent's performance and their team's overall performance throughout the tournament.
