KL Rahul Remains 4th, Virat Kohli Static On 10th In T20 Rankings; Shreyas Iyer, Suryakumar Yadav, Rishabh Pant Rise In ODI Chart

Written by Abhishek Patil

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

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-armer 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.

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

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.
