In Cricket, Team India has risen to the second spot in the latest ICC Twenty-20 rankings.
They leapfrogged England, New Zealand and the West Indies to move from fifth to second place, owing to a 3-0 whitewash in the recently concluded series against Sri Lanka. Pakistan is at the top of the list.
In the rankings for batsmen, Indian captain Virat Kohli slipped from the first spot to third, due to his absence in the series against the Lankans. Lokesh Rahul jumped 23 places to grab the 4th spot. The list is led by Aussie opener Aaron Finch, followed by West Indian Evin Lewis.
Among the bowlers, Jasprit Bumrah has been pushed to the third spot behind Pakistan’s Imad Wasim and Afghanistan’s Rashid Khan.
Bumrah had missed out on the final T20 and went wicket-less in the first two games against Sri Lanka. Yuzvendra Chahal gained 14 places to 16th.
