Ireland registered a thrilling 2-1 triumph over Pakistan in the recently completed three-game T20I series and three of their best performers have risen to career high ratings as a result of the triumph.

Young gun and ICC 100% Cricket Superstar Gaby Lewis was the leading run-scorer for the series with a total of 144 runs at an average of 72 and her magnificent knock of 71 in the series decider helped her jump four spots to 25th overall on the latest T20I batter rankings.

Teammate Arlene Kelly picked up more wickets (five) than any other player during the series and her spell of 3/19 in the final match in Lahore was pivotal in helping the 28-year-old move up five places to 20th on the rankings for bowlers.

To top off a good week for the Irish, Orla Prendergast jumped two spots to 19th on the list for all-rounders after her quickfire knock of 37 in the deciding contest.

The only notable mover for Pakistan was Javeria Khan, with the experienced opener hitting a half-century in the final game of the series to move up four places to equal 40th on the T20I batter rankings.

It was a quiet week on the international front for Women's cricket, with the first ODI between Thailand and the Netherlands the only other clash played.

Thailand star Natthakan Chantham re-enters the batter rankings at 89th following her century in Chiangmai, while Netherlands opener Babette de Leede jumps 37 places to 88th on the back of her team-high knock of 33 in the same match.
