Sri Lanka retains No.1 T20I position

However, it has lost six rating points and its lead over second-ranked Pakistan has come down to four points

Sri Lanka retains No.1 T20I position 
 - Cricket News
Sri Lanka remains the top-ranked Twenty20 side in the world.
Sri Lanka’s six wickets victory in the third and last Twenty20 International against South Africa in Hambantota on Tuesday has helped it to retain its position as the number-one ranked side on the Reliance ICC T20I Rankings Table.   

Sri Lanka, which lost the series 1-2, however, has dropped six ratings points and, as such, its lead over second-ranked Pakistan has now trimmed to four ratings points.  

In contrast, Faf du Plessis’ side has leapfrogged England into fifth position after securing six ratings points. The Proteas are now just two ratings points behind ICC World Twenty20 2012 champion the West Indies. 

Duminy returns to the top 10 

Meanwhile, South Africa batsman JP Duminy has re-entered into the top 10 of the Reliance ICC Player Rankings for T20I Batsmen in the latest update that were done following the conclusion of Sri Lanka-South Africa series. 

Duminy has moved up seven places and is now in 10th spot. The left-handed batsman was the highest run-getter in the series with 132 runs and was named the player of the series.  

The other South Africa batsmen to move up the order include du Plessis in 25th (up by 17 places) and David Miller in 56th (by 21). 

The batting table is still headed by New Zealand captain Brendon McCullum, followed by England's Alex Hales in second place and Australia all-rounder Shane Watson in third spot. 

Meanwhile, South Africa fast bowlers Lonwabo Tsotsobe in 30th (up by 21) and Wayne Parnell in 51st (up by 35) have made major gains in the latest Reliance ICC Player Rankings for T20I Bowlers.  

The bowling table is still headed by West Indies' Sunil Narine with Pakistan spinner Saeed Ajmal in second place and Sri Lanka's Ajantha Mendis in third spot.
