Babar has continued to hold onto the top spot despite pressure from teammate Rizwan and India's Yadav until last week
Mohammad Rizwan, Babar Azam and Suryakumar Yadav are battling for the top spot in the latest MRF Tyres ICC Men's T20I Batting Rankings set to be released on Wednesday.
The Asian giants are battling it out in the Asia Cup in UAE, but there's another tussle going on in the batting rankings with Babar Azam, Suryakumar Yadav and Mohammad Rizwan in a close tussle for the No.1 spot in the T20I batting rankings.
Babar has continued to hold onto the top spot despite pressure from teammate Rizwan and India's Yadav until last week. But a string of low scores from Babar, and half-centuries from Rizwan and Suryakumar in the past week could see a shuffle at the top of the rankings this week when the ICC releases the Player Rankings on Wednesday.

Rizwan is the top run-scorer in the Asia Cup so far with 192 runs, including two fifties in three matches. The Pakistan opener hit the fifties against Hong Kong and India, and also made 43 in the first game against India in the tournament.
Yadav, on the other hand, slammed a sensational 26-ball 68* against Hong Kong. Babar hasn't had a great run in the tournament with scores of 10, 9 and 14 in the three matches so far.
