Man of the Series Kohli retains number-one position in MRF Tyres ICC Player Rankings for T20I Batsmen

Sharma rises a spot for career-best ranking, Watson and Raina move up the charts too

India batsman Virat Kohli’s excellent run of form in the just-concluded series against Australia has allowed him to hold on to the status of world’s number-one ranked Twenty20 International batsman in the latest MRF Tyres ICC Player Rankings for T20I Batsmen, which were released today.
 
Kohli was the leading run-scorer in the series with 199 runs, including a top score of 90. The India Test captain was undoubtedly one of the players who shaped India’s series win, allowing it to replace the West Indies as the top-ranked T20I side in the latest MRF Tyres ICC T20I Championship table.
 
Also making an impact was Rohit Sharma, who scored 143 runs in the series, including two half-centuries. As a result, he has moved up one place to 17th, while Suresh Raina, who scored a match-winning 49 not out in Sydney, has gained two places and is now in 13th position.
 
Australia’s opener Aaron Finch has retained his second position in the batsmen’s rankings, while Shane Watson, who captained in the Sydney T20I and scored an unbeaten 124, has vaulted places to 11th.  He is now just 13 points away from returning into the top 10, his best ranking, of course, was number-one which he achieved in 2012.
 
In the MRF Tyres ICC Player Rankings for T20I Bowlers, India’s Ravindra Jadeja has returned to the table in 18th position, while Watson has stormed up 11 places to 25th spot.
 
Watson has claimed the number-one spot in the MRF Tyres ICC Player Rankings for T20I All-rounders, while moving ahead of Shakib Al Hasan of Bangladesh and Pakistan’s Shahid Afridi.
 
The  MRF Tyres ICC T20I Championship table now has India in the top position, while Australia has dropped six places to eighth. India now leads second-ranked West Indies by two points. A lot of T20I cricket needs to be played before the ICC World Twenty20 India 2016 starts in Nagpur on 8 March, which will certainly have an impact on the championship table.
