Career-high ratings for international stars following rankings update

MRF Tyres ICC Rankings

Hit For Six!

New personal best ratings were the norm on the latest MRF Tyres ICC Women's T20I Player Rankings as a host of international stars reached career-high marks.

Sri Lanka skipper Chamari Athapaththu continued her recent good form with another Player of the Match performance in the second T20I of her side's ongoing series against England and was rewarded with a new career-high rating in both the batting and all-rounder rankings as a result.

Athapaththu contributed 55 and 1/11 during the upset victory for Sri Lanka in Chelmsford and the 33-year-old moved up one place to eighth and a new career-high rating on the list for T20I batters and exceeded that rise with a five-place jump on the all-rounder rankings to ninth overall.

England youngster Alice Capsey hit a half-century of her own in the opening match of that series in Hove and moved up six places to 36th on the batter rankings, while there were a group of players that found new career-best ratings following the first two matches of the T20I series between Pakistan and South Africa in Karachi.

New South Africa captain Laura Wolvaardt rises one place to equal sixth and a new career-best rating in the batter rankings, while teammate Tazmin Brits also reaches the highest mark of her career via a three-spot rise to 10th.

Australian duo Tahlia McGrath (first) and Beth Mooney (second) dominate the top of the T20I batter rankings, despite the fact the pair haven't played much international cricket in recent times.

Pakistan's series triumph over South Africa saw Sadia Iqbal move up six places to 12th and a new career-high rating on the latest T20I bowler rankings, while teammate Nashra Sandhu rose five places to 20th.

England spinner Sophie Ecclestone maintains a healthy lead at the top of the T20I bowler rankings, with India’s Deepti Sharma moving up to second due to the fact that south Africa left-armer Nonkululeko Mlaba dropped one place to third.
