Evin Lewis Bursts into Top Five of ICC T20I Rankings

Windies stars led by big hitting Evin Lewis made rapid strides in the latest ICC T20 rankings, after a thrilling 2-1 series win over Bangladesh.

The left-hander, who smashed 89 off just 36 balls in the decider, jumped to no.4 spot, moving 11 positions up from his previous ranking.

Keemo Paul, who was the star with the ball, registering figures of 5/15, moved 42 positions to reach no.30 spot in bowlers ranking. His T20 exploits have also helped him earn an IPL spot with the Delhi Capitals.

Batsman Shai Hope too was rewarded for his consistent efforts throughout the three games, including a fifty in the first game, earning a massive 82-place leap to No.82.

The other Windies batsmen making gains were Nicholas Pooran (16 places to No.88) and Rovman Powell (26 places to No.110).

As for the bowlers, Cottrell and Allen made a huge upward movement. Cottrell, who finished the series with seven scalps, jumped 64 places to No.88, and Allen moved up 86 places to No.99.

Skipper Carlos Brathwaite became the top-ranked Windies bowler with an eight-place leap to No.22, finishing one above Samuel Badree, the Windies leg-spinner.

For Bangladesh, it was skipper Shakib Al Hasan who made noteworthy gains in all three departments. He climbed one place to the second spot in the all-rounder's column, three spots to No.7 in the bowler's list, and seven spots to No.37 in the batting chart.

However, in team rankings, both Bangladesh and West Indies continued to languish at the foot of the table, ranked no.7 and no.10 respectively.
