In the ICC T20 Rankings, KL Rahul has risen to fourth place. In the ICC T20 rankings for batters released on Wednesday, opener KL Rahul moved up to fourth, while Virat Kohli and India’s new white ball skipper Rohit Sharma remained in 10th and 11th positions, respectively.
Bhuvneshwar Kumar, the best-placed Indian on the bowling chart, was 20th after dropping a run, while pace spearhead Jasprit Bumrah fell two places to 26th. There was no Indian on the list of all-rounders. India, on the other hand, has not recently competed in T20 Internationals. Left-arm spinner Akeal Hosein and fast bowler Jason Holder have achieved career-best bowling rankings after guiding the West Indies to a series-deciding 17-run victory over England in the fifth match in Bridgetown.
Hosein has risen 15 places to 18th in the latest weekly update of the men’s rankings, which takes into account performances in the series’ final three matches, following a four-for-30 haul that helped him finish with six wickets in three matches.
