Fakhar Zaman’s Leap in ICC T20 Rankings surpasses Rohit Sharma

One last time before the T20 World Cup, the International Cricket Council (ICC) updated the T20I standings. Following a few games played over the past week or two, teams like Bangladesh, USA, South Africa, West Indies, England, and Pakistan have all moved up in the standings.

The Indian team’s mainstays, Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma, have obviously lost ground in the rankings after playing in so few matches since the previous T20 World Cup.

In contrast, Kohli is ranked 47th, ahead of the Indian captain, who is positioned 52nd. Two places below them in the standings is Pakistan’s Fakhar Zaman. Against England in the second Twenty20 of the four-match series, he actually surged six spots in the rankings after hitting 45 runs off just 21 balls. He is currently ranked 51st in the T20 world rankings.

Suryakumar Yadav and Yashasvi Jaiswal are the top-ranked hitters for India, coming in at number one and sixth, respectively. Ruturaj Gaikwad, who is not even on the World Cup roster, comes in at number eleven. At number thirty-two, Rinku Singh is the fourth-ranked Indian in the rankings. If Kohli and Rohit perform well in the impending major event, which has a ton of Twenty20 International matches scheduled, their rankings would undoubtedly rise.

Fakhar is the next in line, with Babar Azam coming in at number four and Muhammad Rizwan in third place among Pakistan’s top ten. Brandon King is the newest player in the top 10, having captained the West Indies to three straight victories in Twenty20 Internationals against South Africa.

After scoring 159 runs in three games at an average of 53 and a strike rate of 167.37 with 10 fours and 13 sixes, King leaped five spots to take the eighth spot in the standings.
