Indian wicket-keeper batter Richa Ghosh made giant strides in the ICC Women’s ODI rankings after her crucial 65 in the second ODI against New Zealand. She moved up 15 spots to reach 54th on the list.
The Indian women have had a terrible time in New Zealand so far. They have lost all four of the ODIs played thus far. In these matches, there were sparks here and there but it has mostly been the Kiwis romping home in the series.
Despite that, there are a few who have moved up in the rankings for India. Apart from Ghosh, even all-rounder Deepti Sharma jumped two places to No.18 in the batters’ rankings and six more in the bowlers’ rankings.
She scored an unbeaten 69 in the third ODI, albeit in a losing cause, and also picked up a four-for in the second game. Newcomer Sabbhineni Meghana has also been impressive. She scored 49 and 61 in the second and third game to leap 113 spots to rank in 67th place.
Alyssa Healy continues to head the batters list
Australian opener Alyssa Healy is the undisputed leader at the top with 749 points followed by the Indian captain, Mithali Raj, with 741 points. As for Amelia Kerr, she has entered the top 10 for ODI all-rounders in the women’s game.
She smashed a century in the second ODI and helped the Kiwis chase down a stiff target. She has also gone past her previous best rating on the batters’ list, having reached 512 points during the series. Kerr sits at No. 6 in the rankings for all-rounders.
