Women's Cricket World Cup

Star performers of CWC22 make big gains in ODI rankings

ICC Rankings

Hit For Six!

Sophie Ecclestone, Amy Satterthwaite, Marizanne Kapp and Laura Wolvaardt have all taken major leaps in the MRF Tyres ICC Women's ODI Player Rankings after their sizzling performances at the ICC Women's Cricket World Cup 2022 in New Zealand.


Despite England failing to win a single match at the World Cup, Sophie Ecclestone has been a shining light for her team, bowling with great discipline. Her performances have seen her rise to the No.1 spot in the bowling charts, overtaking Australia's Jess Jonassen. She registered figures of 3/20 in England's loss against West Indies and followed that up with a miserly spell of 1/23 against South Africa. 

The other big gainer in the bowling charts is Marizanne Kapp, who registered the best-ever figures of her international career during South Africa's three-wicket win against England. Her 5/45 helped South Africa restrict England to 235/9 and she made a handy contribution with the bat as well during the chase, chipping in with a vital 32 runs. In the previous match against Pakistan, she had bowling figures of 2/43. This has seen her jump four spots to No.4 in the bowling charts, while also retaining her No.3 spot in the all-rounders' rankings.

Satterthwaite scored 75 in New Zealand's 62-run win against India and then scored 44 as her side crumbled to a 141-run defeat against Australia. Her performances have seen her rise up to No.3 in the batting rankings, up to five spots. 

Wolvaardt has also been in fine touch in the tournament. She scored 75 and 77 in South Africa's victories against Pakistan and England respectively, rising seven spots to break into the top 10 of the batting charts, at No.5.
