Megan Schutt claimed top spot in the MRF Tyres Women’s ODI Bowling Rankings, while Alyssa Healy burst into the top 10 of the Batting Rankings after Australia’s 3-0 ODI series win over England.
Schutt, a right-arm seamer, only claimed five wickets in the series, but was consistently economical, and achieved a career-best rating of 762 points. Australia spinner Jess Jonassen held onto second place, also achieving a career-best rating of 749 points, meaning India seamer Jhulan Goswami was pushed down into third place.
Ellyse Perry’s heroic figures of 7/22 in the final ODI of the series pushed her up four places to fourth, while the other big movers were England spinner Sophie Ecclestone, whose 567 points is also a career-best and took her to 16th position, and Australia seamer Delissa Kimmince, whose five-for in the second game of the series helped take her up 33 positions to 80th.
In the Batting Rankings, the one new entry in the top 10 was wicket-keeper/batter Healy, who top the series run-charts with 143 runs. Her career-best rating of 703 points lifted her seven places to seventh. There was movement elsewhere, with Perry dropping a position, from second to third, and England batter Tammy Beaumont climbing two places to fourth after notching a century in the second game of the series. England captain Heather Knight dropped eight places to 15th.
Outside of the top 10, Australia batter Beth Mooney rose six places to 18th, leapfrogging compatriot Nicole Bolton who slipped six places to 19th. England spinner Laura Marsh, the only England batter to pass 20 more than once in the series, rose 21 spots to No. 75, while Jess Jonassen, who topped the series averages with two not outs, rose 12 places to 31st.
Her all-round efforts ensured she rose four places to fifth in the All-Rounder Rankings. Perry retained the all-rounders’ top spot, rising to a career-high 529 ranking points.
