The International Cricket Council (ICC) has released the latest update of the Women’s ODI rankings which sees ace Indian batter Smriti Mandhana slipping down four places, while India captain Mithali Raj holding onto her second spot.

Australia’s Alyssa Healy continues to be the no.1 ranked Women’s ODI batter. Mithali Raj with 744 points is second behind Healy, who is just five points ahead of the Indian at 749, while Mandhana with 696 points has been overtaken by England’s Tammy Beaumont (No.4), the Australian duo of Meg Lanning (No.5, 706 points) and Beth Mooney (No.6, 705 points), and South Africa’s Lizelle Lee (No. 7, 702 points).

Mandhana slipped four places from her top spot, as she missed the first two One-day Matches of the ongoing five-match series in New Zealand thanks to her being confined in the New Zealand government’s Mandatory Isolation and Quarantine (MIQ) facility since her arrival with the Indian team.

Ahead of the 2022 ICC Women’s Cricket World Cup, New Zealand, and Australian players have displayed some fine form which bodes well for their respective sides as they prepare for the tournament.
