Afghanistan legspinner Rashid Khan has risen to the top of the ICC’s rankings for T20I bowlers, to go with his joint No. 1 status in the ODI charts.
Rashid claimed top spot in the T20 lists after taking five wickets at an average of 8.40 and economy of 5.25 in two matches against Zimbabwe in Sharjah. New Zealand legspinner Ish Sodhi is in second place, 59 points behind Rashid’s tally of 759.
There were changes at the top of the charts for T20I batsmen and allrounders as well. New Zealand’s Colin Munro became the top ranked T20I batsman once again, after scoring 176 runs at a strike rate of nearly 210 in the Trans-Tasman Tri-nation Series against Australia and England.
And Australia’s Glenn Maxwell became the No. 1 T20I allrounder for the third time after scoring 233 runs and taking three wickets in the same tournament. (ESPNcricinfo)
