Jemimah returns to top 10 in T20 rankings

Jemimah returns to top 10 in T20 rankings

Dubai, Aug 9 (UNI) India youngster Jemimah Rodrigues returned into the top 10 batters in the ICC women's T20 rankings following a thrilling Commonwealth Games tournament.
The ICC released the latest set of rankings on Tuesday and Australia's Beth Mooney rose back to the top and India youngster Rodrigues placed 10 in the batters list.
Rodrigues’s return to form saw her score 146 runs in Birmingham, helping her gain seven spots and returned into the top 10 batters for the first time since October 2021. She joined Smriti Mandhana (fourth) and Shafali Verma (sixth) as India batters inside the top 10.
Mooney capped a fine run in the Commonwealth Games with a 41-ball 61 against India in the final to finish as the top run-scorer of the tournament with 179 runs. With scores of 70 not out against Pakistan and 36 against New Zealand this past week, she is now 18 points ahead of Lanning with 743 rating points.
England may have missed out on a medal, but their bowlers occupy the top three spots in the bowling rankings. Fast bowler Katherine Brunt has swapped places with Sarah Glenn and is up to second, her highest position for 11 years. Left-arm spinner Sophie Ecclestone continues to be at the top with a good lead of 34 rating points over Brunt.
South Africa batters Anneke Bosch (up five places to 20th) and Tazmin Brits (up six places to 22nd) are others to gain big among batters while Pakistan’s Javeria Khan and India’s Deepti Sharma have gained two slots each to reach 32nd and 36th positions, respectively.
The leading wicket-taker in the CWG was Renuka Singh of India, and her 11 wickets have rewarded her with an entry into the top 20 for the first time.
Fast bowlers Shabnim Ismail of South Africa and Megan Schutt of Australia have moved up two places each to grab fourth and fifth positions in the bowlers’ list. Left-arm spinners Nonkululeko Mlaba of South Africa and Radha Yadav of India are up to eighth and 14th places, respectively.
