Tammy Beaumont of England has risen to the top ten of the MRF Tyres ICC Women’s ODI Player Rankings following her magnificent century against South Africa.

Beaumont hit her 9th ODI century with a brilliant individual inning of 119 in the third and final ODI against the Proteas in Leicester on Monday, giving the seasoned 31-year-old a total of 178 runs in three matches.

It helped Beaumont climb three ranks in the ICC rankings revealed on Tuesday, moving her ahead of veteran trio Chamari Athapaththu, Smriti Mandhana, and Ellyse Perry and into 8th place among batters.

South African Players Move Down In Rankings

Nat Sciver, Beaumont’s England teammate, sat out the last game of the series at Grace Road, and as a result, Australia’s Beth Mooney leapfrogged her into second place, relegating the right-hander to third.

Alyssa Healy of Australia remains unrivalled at the top of the ODI batter rankings, but South Africans Marizanne Kapp (up six places to 18th) and Chloe Tryon (up two spaces to 20th) made inroads during their series against England.

Kapp also moves up two positions to third on the newest all-rounder rankings, but it wasn’t good news for her or many of her South African teammates on the list of bowlers following their 3-0 series loss to England.

Veteran pacer Shabnim Ismail slid to third after losing the second position to Australia’s Jess Jonassen, while compatriots Ayabonga Khaka (down one spot to sixth) and Kapp (down three spots to tenth) also lost ground.

The current T20I rankings were rather quiet this week, with Australia’s clinical start to their tri-series against Ireland and Pakistan having very minor significance.

Healy slid one spot to seventh in the batter rankings after scoring just 10 runs against Ireland on Sunday, while Jonassen fell one spot to tenth in the bowling rankings after missing that match due to Covid.

Better news came for Ashleigh Gardner, who jumped two ranks to 10th in the current all-rounder rankings.
