Veteran India pacer Jhulan Goswami rose to the apex of MRF Tyres ICC Women's ODI Rankings for Bowling after claiming eight wickets in the three-match series against England.
Goswami, who returned 1/19, 4/30 and 3/41 in the three games in Mumbai, played a crucial role in guiding India to a 2-1 victory over the series. The 36-year-old has displaced Sana Mir at the top of the rankings, leapfrogging two spots with 730 points to her kitty.
Left-arm spinner Jess Jonassen, who claimed nine scalps in Australia's 3-0 sweep over New Zealand, also rose by two places to claim the second spot. It marks a stunning return to form after an injury lay-off and the ICC T20 World Cup in the Caribbean, where she didn't feature in any of the games in Australia's winning run. The 26-year-old took 4/43 and 5/27 in the first two one-day internationals, and sits just below Goswami with 723 points.
Sana Mir, the former No.1, has dropped to third place with 718 points.
India's Shikha Pandey leapt 12 places to claim the fifth spot and a career-best points tally of 688, courtesy her eight scalps against England. Katherine Brunt and Ellyse Perry rose by one spot each to settle at No.6 and No.9 respectively.
In the batting rankings, Natalie Sciver, the England all-rounder, rose by 10 places to settle at the joint-fifth spot with Stafanie Taylor. Sciver accumulated 130 runs in the three-match series against India, bringing up two 40-plus scores.
Sophie Devine, the New Zealand opener, climbed two spots to break into the top 10 after scoring 47 and 58 against Australia. Amy Satterthwaite, Mithali Raj and Heather Knight each gained one place to settle at No.3, No.4 and No.12 respectively.
Other significant gainers in the top 50 include Katie Perkins at No.31 (up six places), Danielle Wyatt at No. 34 (up seven places), and Jess Jonassen (up eight places) and Jemimah Rodrigues (up 10 places) at joint No.49.
Sciver and Devine rose in the all-rounders' rankings as well, rising to No.5 and No.7 respectively. Perry retained her position at the top of the rankings.
