The International Cricket Council (ICC) has released fresh ICC T20 rankings after the South Africa-England series. Talking from India’s perspectives, the rankings have not brought about a great change in India’s position. This seems to be quite shocking as India recently became the first team to clean sweep a T20 series 5-0.
The Men in Blue beat the Kiwis in all the five games to make a big statement. The third and fourth T20I went in Super Overs and India emerged on top in both the games.
However, the Black Caps got their redemption as they clean swept India by 3-0 in the ODIs. It was a historic defeat for the Men in Blue as they were whitewashed after 31 years in a three-match or more ODI series.
ICC Comes Up With Latest T20 Rankings As India Remain Fourth:
Talking about team rankings, Pakistan sits on top of the rankings chart. Australia are listed second and has witnessed no change in their rankings. England maintained their third spot but have come two points close to the second-placed Kangaroos.
The biggest shock, however, is that India have not witnessed any change even after clean sweeping the Kiwis.
Babar Azam remains the top-ranked batsman. He is followed by KL Rahul at the second spot. Rahul had an amazing series against the Kiwis and won the Man of the Series award for his brilliant performances throughout the series.
Afganistan’s Rashid Khan leads the bowler’s rankings chart and teammate Mohammad Nabi grabs the top spot in the all-rounder rankings.
