India wins series but misses chance to go top of the T20I team rankings

Fast bowler Jaspreet Bumrah achieves career-best second ranking as India’s rising stars make impressive gains in the latest T20I player rankings

India wins series but misses chance to go top of the T20I team rankings - Cricket News
Jaspreet Bumrah rose to second in the T20I rankings for bowlers.
Former ICC World Twenty20 champion India missed a chance to wrest back the top position on the MRF Tyres ICC T20I Team Rankings despite defeating Zimbabwe by 2-1 in the three-match series in Harare on Wednesday.
 
India had started the series fraction of a point behind New Zealand and needed to win the series 3-0 to perch itself at the top of the table.
 
However, after Zimbabwe pulled off a thrilling two-run victory in the opening match of the series on Saturday, India kissed good-bye to its chances of reclaiming the number-one position which it had surrendered to New Zealand following the annual update on 4 May.
 
The 2-1 series win means India has finished on 128 points – four behind number-one ranked New Zealand and six ahead of reigning ICC World Twenty20 champion West Indies.
 
In contrast, Zimbabwe has lifted from 58 points to 62 after gaining four points despite losing the series. This is because India had entered the series leading 12th ranked Zimbabwe by 66 points. And because the rankings are weighted to reflect this difference, India’s failure to comfortably win the matches have resulted in it dropping points and Zimbabwe earning points.
 
Meanwhile, in the MRF Tyres ICC T20I Player Rankings, a number of India’s rising stars have made impressive gains in the latest rankings.
 
In the MRF Tyres ICC Rankings for T20I Bowlers, Jasprit Bumrah has achieved a career-best rankings. The right-arm 22-year-old from Ahmedabad has vaulted six places to second position after claiming five wickets in the series.
 
This rise means Bumrah has become India’s highest ranked bowler in the shortest format of the game after Ravichandran Ashwin has slipped four places to seventh following his decision to miss the series.
 
Bumrah now has number-one ranked Samuel Badree firmly within his sights. The West Indies wrist spinner leads Bumrah by 46 points.
 
Bumrah’s team-mate Barinder Sran, who finished the series as the most successful bowler with six wickets, has broken into the rankings in 225th position.
 
For Zimbabwe, Neville Madzira and Taurai Muzarabani have gained significantly to reach 126th and 148th positions, respectively.
 
In the MRF Tyres ICC Rankings for T20I Batsmen, Kedar Jadhav has made a huge jump of 181 places to 106th after he finished as the third leading run-getter with 77 runs that included a match-winning 42-ball 58 that helped India to set-up a winning score.


 
Mandeep Singh and Lokesh Rahul have returned to the rankings in 100th and 102nd positions respectively, while other notable movers are Manish Pandey in 152nd (up by 119 places) and Ambati Rayudu 217th (up by 133 places).
 
For Zimbabwe, Elton Chigumbura has gained 11 places to reach 41st place after scoring 78 runs in the series, including a match-winning 54 in the opening game, while Peter Moor has gained 52 places to reach 110th.
 
India’s Virat Kohli is the number-one ranked T20I batsman. He is followed by Aaron Finch of Australia and Martin Guptill of New Zealand.
