Young India opener Ishan Kishan has jumped to the sixth spot in the latest ICC T20I rankings and is currently the highest-ranked Indian in the tally. Kishan had a memorable series against South Africa where he scored two half-centuries and ended up as the leading run-scorer with 206 runs at an average of 41. It is the first time Kishan got the entry into the top 10 rankings of T20I batters.
Veteran wicketkeeper batter Dinesh Karthik also made huge gains of 108 spots and is currently placed at 87th. The 37-year-old scored his maiden T20I half-century in the recently concluded series against the Proteas.
Pakistan captain Babar Azam is holding the numero uno spot in the T20I charts followed by his opening partner Mohammed Rizwan.
In the bowling listings, leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal was the biggest mover on the T20 rankings. He jumped three places to 23rd following his six wickets during the South Africa series.
Josh Hazlewood maintains his position as the top-ranked T20 bowler, with Afghanistan spinner Rashid Khan (joint third) and Sri Lanka tweaker Wanindu Hasaranga (sixth) both moving up a place inside the top 10.
