Wilson breaks into top 100, Devine claims top allrounder spot in ICC rankings

Dubai, Feb 14 (UNI) Fran Wilson, the 28-year-old England batter, has broken into the
top 100 in the latest MRF Tyres ICC Women’s T20I player rankings following the series
between South Africa and New Zealand, and the tri-series in Australia, involving the
home team, India and England, on Friday.
Wilson made the gains after starring for England with a pair of rearguard efforts during
the tri-series, although they didn’t suffice to haul England to the final, as they lost out to
eventual runners-up India on net run-rate. Wilson was one of two big gainers, alongside
Indonesia’s Yulia Anggraeni, who rose 29 places to 64th position. Anggraeni had struck a
68-ball 112 against Philippines in her previous international outing.
Among the other big movers were Australia’s Ashleigh Gardner, who jumped 18 places
into the top 20, after ravaging India with a 57-ball 93. England’s Amy Jones fell 10 spots
out of the top 20, after a middling tri-series in which she made just 21 runs in four innings.
Although Suzie Bates, New Zealand’s No.3, retained her top spot, there were other
movements in the top 10, with Bates’ team-mate and captain Sophie Devine rising four
spots to No.2.
Australia opener Beth Mooney and her Indian counterpart Smriti Mandhana both made
upward movements, while Meg Lanning, despite dropping three position, hung on to the
top five.
Among the bowlers, Ellyse Perry’s golden run with the ball gave her a jump of four
places into the top 10, to No.7. Poonam Yadav dropped six places out of the top 10 to take
the 12th position, while England fast bowler Anya Shrubsole tumbled six places to fall out
of the top 20. Anuja Patil and Delissa Kimmince lost out big as well, falling 11 places to 31,
and 14 places to 33 respectively.
Australia’s Sophie Molineux climbed nine places to claim 15th spot, while South Africa’s
Ayabonga Khaka gained 17 places to rise to 36th position. But the big movements
happened further down, with Tayla Vlaeminck jumping 57 places to 48, after claiming seven
wickets in three tri-series games, while maintaining an economy rate of 5.25, and Ashleigh
Gardner dropping 25 places to 56.
New Zealand’s Hayley Jensen gained 21 places to move to 65, while team-mate Anna
Paterson rose 20 places to occupy the 74th position. England’s Sarah Glenn also jumped
61 places to 76, after her five wickets at 14.40 in the tri-series.
Among all-rounders, Devine claimed the top spot after gaining one position, while Nat
Sciver also jumped one place to round out the top three. Hayley Matthews dropped down
a position to four, while South Africa captain Dane van Niekerk completed the top five after
gaining one position.
Among other movers, Sri Lanka’s Chamari Athapaththu dropped out of the top ten to
No.11, while Heather Knight gained 10 position to rise to 22. Vlaeminck, as she did in the
bowlers’ rankings, made big gains here, too, rising 35 spots to No.66, while Khaka rose
24 places to 72. Australia’s Nicola Carey jumped 17 places into the top 100, coming in at 94.
