A number of Australian cricketers have moved up in the rankings following their 3-0 Twenty20 International series sweep over Pakistan.
Healy was the Australian Player of the Series after hitting 59 and 67* in the first and third games respectively, and achieved a career-high 529 points and a joint No.12 spot (with the Windies’ Hayley Matthews) at the end of the series.
Healy moved up eight spots in the MRF Tyres ICC Women’s T20I Player Rankings as a result of her big runs, which will have boosted Australia's hopes ahead of the ICC Women's World T20 2018.
Among Australians, Meg Lanning retained her position at No.3, while Beth Mooney, who had scores of 38, 29 and 21 in the series, moved up one spot to No.4, pushing down the Windies’ Deandra Dottin to No.5.
It wasn’t a great series for Pakistan, as they lost the three matches by 64 runs, six wickets and nine wickets respectively, and that was reflected in the rankings. From Australia’s point of view, star all-rounder Ellyse Perry also didn’t have too big a say in the results, and slipped four spots to No.9 among the bowlers.
But they had plenty of other gainers in the bowling department.
Megan Schutt not only stayed at No.1, she got herself a career-high 724 points by the end of the series. Delissa Kimmince moved up 24 spots to No.18 after picking up three wickets. Sophie Molineux, who got seven wickets in the series, gained 40 spots to get to No.36. And Ashleigh Gardner went up 18 places to joint No.58 with South Africa’s Sune Luus. Kimmince, Molineux and Gardner all had their career-best points too.
Gardner, interestingly, moved up to the same 58th spot in the batters’ chart too, a jump of 25 positions.
