Indian captain Harmanpreet Kaur, opener Smriti Mandhana and teenager Jemimah Rodrigues occupy three slots amongst the top 10 in the ICC Women’s T20I Rankings for batters, following the conclusion of the ICC Women’s World T20 2018.

Kaur has gained three places to become third in the list, after an impressive run in the Caribbean. She finished as the second highest run-maker in the competition, having scored 183 runs from five matches, including a massive 103 against New Zealand in the opening fixture.

Rodrigues jumped nine places to reach a career-best sixth place, while southpaw Mandhana moved up seven places to occupy the last slot in the top 10. Both players, who scored 125 and 178 runs in the tournament respectively, produced significant contributions to help their team qualify for the semi-finals.

Unsurprisingly, Australia and England’s players have made a massive jump in the rankings as well in the latest update.

Healy, who recorded 225 runs inclusive of two half-centuries in six matches in the tournament, gained four spots to reach No. 8, while Pakistan’s Javeria Khan gained seven places to reach a career-best 14th position.

Among the bowlers rankings, which is led by Megan Schutt, New Zealand spinner Leigh Kasperek’s seven wickets have propelled her to third position, England’s Sophie Ecclestone has moved from 16th to fourth and fast bowler Anya Shrubsole slots in at No. 6.

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, and South Africa captain Dane van Niekerk has advanced one slot to reach fifth position.

In the team rankings, England have overtaken New Zealand to second position in the list which continues to be topped by Meg Lanning’s Australia with 283 points after their fourth ICC Women’s World T20 title.
