Indian batter KL Rahul has moved up one place, to fourth, displacing England’s Dawid Malan in the latest ICC Men’s T20I Rankings for batters released on Wednesday. Rahul, with 729 points, is behind Pakistan skipper Babar Azam (No. 1, 805 points), Mohammad Rizwan (798 points) and South Africa’s Aiden Markram (796 points).
Former India captain Virat Kohli and the new while-ball skipper Rohit Sharma continue to hold on to their 10th and 11th spots, respectively among batters in the latest rankings update.
Meanwhile, left-arm spinner Akeal Hosein and fast bowler Jason Holder have achieved career-best rankings for bowlers after helping the West Indies to a series-deciding 17-run victory in the fifth and final T20I against England in Bridgetown. No Indian bowler figures in the top-10 in the category, with Bhuvneshwar Kumar slipping one spot to 20th.
