Captain Harmanpreet Kaur leads a bunch of India batters making notable advances in the ICC Women’s T20I Player Rankings while players from Australia and England have unsurprisingly made rapid gains in the latest update following the ICC Women’s World T20 2018.

Kaur, who was the second highest run-maker during the 10-team event after Australia opener Alyssa Healy, has gained three slots to reach the third position. Kaur aggregated 183 runs including a match-winning 103 in the tournament opener against New Zealand.

Jemimah Rodrigues (up nine places to a career-best sixth) and left-handed opener Smriti Mandhana (up seven places to a career-best 10th) are the others from her team to move up after contributing in their team’s campaign in the Caribbean, which ended against England in the semi-finals.

Healy has gained four slots to reach the eighth position for her player of the tournament effort, which saw her score 225 runs. Other batters to gain in the latest rankings update include Javeria Khan of Pakistan, who has gained seven places to reach a career-best 14th position, and Clare Shillington of Ireland, who has gained one slot to take the 19th slot.

In the bowlers’ list led by Australia’s Megan Schutt, New Zealand spinner Leigh Kasperek’s seven wickets have lifted her seven places to third position while finalists England’s Sophie Ecclestone has moved from 16th to fourth and fast bowler Anya Shrubsole from 12th to sixth place after a seven-wicket effort, which included a hat-trick against South Africa.

Other bowlers to improve their rankings include New Zealand leg-spinner Amelia Kerr (up 15 places to a career-best seventh), Delisa Kimmince of Australia (up 10 places to eighth), South Africa’s Shabnim Ismail (up 11 places to 10th), Pakistan’s Nashra Sandhu (up 25 places to a career-best 10th), Shashikala Siriwardene of Sri Lanka (up six places to 17th) and

Windies’ Deandra Dottin has shot up from fourth to second in the list of all-rounders. She has overtaken Australia’s Ellyse Perry and compatriot Hayley Mathews after finishing with 121 runs and 10 wickets in the tournament. South Africa captain Dane van Niekerk has advanced one slot to reach fifth position among all-rounders.

Meanwhile, in the ICC Women’s T20I Team Rankings, England have overtaken New Zealand to second position in the list which continues to be topped by Meg Lanning-led Australia with 283 points after their fourth ICC Women’s World T20 title.
