Pakistan’s ICC Champions Trophy-winning side’s member Imad Wasim has become the number-one ranked T20I bowler after South Africa’s Imran Tahir lost ground following the conclusion of the series against England.

In the latest MRF Tyres ICC T20I Player Rankings for T20I Bowlers, which was updated a day after England beat South Africa 2-1, Tahir has slipped two places after he managed only one wicket in two matches.

His drop to third means Imad has surged to the top for the first time in his career, with India’s fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah rising to second.

In the other major movements in the bowlers’ table, South Africa’s Chris Morris has vaulted 32 places to 29th, while England’s Liam Plunkett has jumped 26 places to 38th.

In the batting table, India’s Virat Kohli, Aaron Finch of Australia and Kane Williamson of New Zealand have retained the top three positions.However, AB de Villiers and Jason Roy are the biggest movers following the just-concluded series.

De Villiers, who was the leading run-getter in the series with 146 runs, has returned to the top 20 in 20thposition after rising  12 places, while Roy’s series aggregate of 103 runs has helped him achieve a career-high 25th position after jumping 26 places.

There is no change in the top three of the all-rounders’ table which is headed by Shakib Al Hasan of Bangladesh, who is followed by Glenn Maxwell of Australia and Afghanistan’s Mohammad Nabi.

Meanwhile, in the MRF Tyres ICC T20I Team Rankings, England has moved into outright second position. It had started the series level with Pakistan on 121 points, but has now moved to 123 points to trail number-one ranked New Zealand by two points.
