Indian players make huge gains in ICC Rankings in T20Is

India National Team 2

After a superb 2-1 win in the recently-concluded T20I series against New Zealand, Indian players have made good gains in the ICC Rankings.

Starting off, skipper Hardik Pandya has moved to the second spot in the ICC’s all-rounders charts after dethroning Afghanistan’s Mohammad Nabi.

Pandya performed well with both the bat and ball in the series and got a four-fer in the third T20I at Ahmedabad.

His knock of 30 from 17 balls also was appreciable as it was a complete all-round show from the T20I skipper.

Pandya has been leading the Indian T20I side after the shocking debacle of the T20 World Cup 2022.

He now has 250 rating points and is just two points behind Bangladesh’s Shakib Al Hasan who currently occupies the top spot.

Young pacer Arshdeep Singh, after an unimpressive performance in the first T20I, has also jumped up eight places to grab the 13th spot in the bowlers’ charts.

He finished off with five wickets in the three matches and took two wickets for 16 runs in the series decider.

Unfortunately, no Indian bowler has reached the top 10 in the bowlers’ rankings as Afghanistan’s Rashid Khan still claims the numero uno spot.

After him are Wanindu Hasaranga and Adil Rashid.

India’s youngest sensation, Shubman Gill has also made good gains after his stellar performance against New Zealand.

He has now jumped a whopping 168 places to reach the 30th position in just six T20Is.

In the series decider at Ahmedabad, Gill smashed his maiden T20I ton and also registered his highest-ever T20I score which is 126.

Suryakumar Yadav only Indian in the top 10 spot in the batter’s rankings

Meanwhile, SKY is still the No.1 T20I batter for India in the ICC rankings with 906 rating points and is followed by Pakistan’s Mohammad Rizwan and Babar Azam.

Talking about the ODI rankings, then it is England’s Jos Buttler who has gained six spots to reach the 20th position.

Meanwhile, his teammate, pacer Jofra Archer has jumped up 13 spots to reach the 22nd position in the ODI bowlers’ rankings.

Archer re-announced his return to the English squad after taking 6/40 in 9.1 overs in the third ODI against South Africa.
