Reported By:| Edited By: |Source: PTI |Updated: Feb 16, 2022, 03:45 PM IST

India opener KL Rahul and teammate Virat Kohli continued to occupy the fourth and 10th spot respectively in the latest ICC men’s T20 batting rankings released on Wednesday.

There was little movement on the latest ODI rankings, with Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma holding on to their second and third place, respectively.

No Indian featured in the top 10 of the bowlers and all-rounders’ list in T20I rankings. 

The recent run of form from Australia pacer Josh Hazelwood has been rewarded as he rose to a career-high second place in the bowling rankings.

The right-arm pacer jumps four spots on the latest rankings, ahead of Adil Rashid, Rashid Khan and teammate Adam Zampa and is only behind South Africa’s Tabraiz Shamsi at the top of the charts.

The unlucky bowler is Wanindu Hasaranga, who drops from first to third after sitting out Sri Lanka’s six-wicket loss to Australia on Tuesday night after testing positive for COVID-19.

Australia captain Aaron Finch drops one spot to seventh in the batting rankings, with New Zealand batter Devon Conway rising one spot to sixth.

Pakistan skipper Babar Azam continued to hold on to the top spot in the ODI rankings.

The Indian pair of Shreyas Iyer and Suryakumar Yadav have made strides up the table.

Yadav scored 64 in the second ODI against the West Indies whilst Iyer made an 80 in the third to help the home side complete a 3-0 series win.

Their teammate Rishabh Pant added a half-century in the third match to move to a career-best of 469 points at the 71st place.

Indian pace spearhead Jasprit Bumrah also remained static on seventh while fellow fast bowler Prasidh Krishna, who was the leading wicket-taker across both sides with nine wickets at just 7.55, gained 50 places from 94th to 44th in the ODI bowlers list.

West Indies’ Alzarri Joseph took two wickets in each of the three matches to earn himself a place in the top 20 bowler’s list.

New Zealand’s Trent Boult remains the top-ranked ODI bowler, while Bangladesh star Shakib Al Hasan is the highest rated all-rounder.
