Australia all-rounder Marcus Stoinis has achieved a massive feat due to his recent performances in the T20I cricket with both bat and ball. He has become the new ICC No.1 ranked all-rounder in the shortest format of the game. 

Marcus Stoinis overtook Mohammad Nabi to claim the top spot in the ICC rankings for the all-rounders. The all-rounder because of his magnificent performances in the league stage of ICC T20 World 2024 grabbed the top spot. He has been one of the main reasons why Australia cruised into the Super 8 stage. 

Marcus Stoinis returned with the figures of 2/9 in the game against Namibia and then came up with a magnificent effort with the bat in Australia's last league game against Scotland. The batter scored 59 runs off 29 balls to take Australia to win when they were reeling at 60/3 in the ninth over. 

Marcus Stoinis in the ongoing T20 World Cup has scored 156 runs in 4 innings at an average of 78. He is the third-leading run-getter in the tournament. With the ball too, he is right there up the ranks as he has chipped in at the crucial junctures for his team in the tournament. 

Apart from Marcus Stoinis, Sri Lanka skipper and Bangladesh great Shakib Al Hasan also made substantial gains and acquired the second and third spot. Mohammad Nabi, who was at the top spot, slipped down the rankings but was still close behind in fourth. 

In terms of bowler rankings' the West Indies' spinner Akeal Hosein, who has been nothing short of exceptional in the ongoing T20 World Cup 2024, also made a huge rise in the ICC rankings for the bowlers. He moved up six places to grab the second spot and is behind Adil Rashid, who is 1st on the rankings. 

Akeal Hosein has been one of the shining lights for the West Indies in the ongoing T20 World Cup 2024. The left-arm spinner picked 9 wickets in the 4 games he played in the league stage and is sitting at the top of the leading wicket-taker charts as he has picked up wickets at an average of around 7.

Suryakumar Yadav, Phil Salt, Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan bag top spot 

In terms of batting, Suryakumar Yadav, Phil Salt, Babar Azam, and Mohammad Rizwan bagged top spots in the ICC rankings for the batters. But in the bottom half of the table, there were quite a few changes as some of the key performers were rewarded for their heroics with the bat. 

Australia batter Travis Head after his half-century in the game against Scotland up five places to fifth. Along with him, West Indies batter Nicholas Pooran, who hit a whirlwind 98 against Papua New Guinea, moved up eight spots to bag the 11th spot in the ICC rankings for batters. 

Along with him, Sherfane Rutherford, who played one of his best innings for the team against New Zealand made a huge gain. He played an innings of unbeaten 68 runs and because of that moved up 43 places to 42nd in the ICC T20 rankings for the batters.
