The likes of Mitchell Marsh and Mohammad Naim have moved up in the T20 batting rankings in the updated standings. Furthermore, Pakistan and West Indian players have also gained in the rankings, followed by Indian players after the T20 series against Sri Lanka. Australia‘s Mitchell Marsh and Bangladesh’s Mohammad Naim have captured the 25th spot in the batting rankings.

Mitchell Marsh has been the sole performer with the bat amid Australia’s struggles with the bat in the ongoing T20 series in Bangladesh. The seam-bowling all-rounder scored two successive innings of 45; however, has not gained much support from the other end. Mohammad Naim’s 29-ball 30 in the first T20I has caused him to climb upwards.

Pooran’s teammate Jason Holder bagged the 53rd spot, while Pakistan’s Hasan Ali moved up to the 60th slot. Sri Lanka’s Dushmantha Chameera also climbed one spot to the 18th position.
