Pakistan captain remains at third position in ICC batsmen rankings, but has increased his rating points from 755 to 769
Ten wickets in three T20Is has seen Haris Rauf catapult Shadab Khan to become the top-ranked Pakistan bowler in the ICC Men’s T20I Bowler Rankings.
Rauf picked up back-to-back four-wicket haul against New Zealand in the ongoing T20I series, winning the Player of the Match in the first game.
The Pakistan quick was just ahead of Shaheen Afridi last week and behind Shadab Khan, who was 12th in the T20I bowling rankings. Ten wickets spread across the first three T20Is has seen Rauf move up five places in the rankings to occupy the 11th spot.
He also achieved career-high ratings of 657 points in the process and could potentially enter the top 10 by the end of the five-match series.
Babar Azam remains at third position in ICC batsmen rankings, but has increased his rating points from 755 to 769, following his 3rd T20I century in the second match of the aforementioned series. India’s Suryakumar Yadav is at number one with 906 points, while Mohammad Rizwan is at second position with 798 rating points.
Meanwhile, Ish Sodhi (620) and Shaheen (624) have also moved up by four places and two places respectively with the others around them dropping points.
