New Zealand all-rounder Amelia Kerr has broken into the 10 for ODI all-rounders in the latest MRF Tyres ICC Player Rankings.
Amelia Kerr scored a hundred and a fifty in the second and third ODI, helping her climb the batters' and all-rounders' charts in the weekly update of the ICC Women's Player Rankings.
In the second ODI, Kerr walked in inside the Powerplay while the White Ferns were chasing 271 and bailed the team out of trouble from 55/3. She put up a crucial 128-run stand with Maddy Green for the fourth wicket. She batted through till the end, finishing on 119* off 135 balls as New Zealand chased down the total with an over to spare.
Kerr once again walked in when New Zealand were in early trouble at 14/2 in their chase of 280 in the third ODI. She added 103 runs for the third wicket with Amy Satterthwaite and helped stabilise the innings. She eventually got out for 67 but laid the platform for the lower order to complete the second-highest successful ODI chase in women's ODI history.
The latest rankings saw Kerr attain career-high ratings for batters (512) and all-rounders (269). She jumped 21 spots to No.22 in rankings for batters and seven spots to No.6 for all-rounders.
Fellow Kiwi Lauren Down too climbed, making a massive jump after her match-winning 64* off 52 balls in the third ODI. She rose 14 spots and broke into the top 50 to occupy the 49th spot for batters.
Though India have had a disappointing showing so far in the series, there were a few positives that were reflected in the rankings. Deepti Sharma's 69* in the third ODI saw her gain two places to No.18 in the batters' rankings while her four-for in the second ODI helped her climb 6 spots to No.13.
Richa Ghosh rose 15 spots to No.54, courtesy of her innings of 65 that helped India post a strong total in the second ODI.
