Shafali is back in the top position of Women’s T20I Player Rankings. She has retained this spot overtaking Australia’s wicket-keeper batsman Beth Mooney. The Indian Opening batsman is just 17-year-old and has left many experienced players behind her. The youngest Indian cricketer to play in Women’s T20I is now in the first position of the player rankings.
Age doesn’t matter, the 17-year-old Shafali Verma is a great example of this statement. Being a teenager in the team, she has achieved things that are not even achieved by some experienced persons. The Indian opening batsman is at the top with a total of 759 ranking points, above the Australian wicket-keeper batsman Beth Mooney who has 744 points. There is another Indian in the top 3 list, Indian Left-handed batsman Smriti Mandhana occupying third place in the women’s T20I Player Rankings with 709 points. Smriti is a middle-order batsman and emerged as one of the best in that position for India in recent years.
Apart from these two, there are no Indian players in the Top 10 batting rankings. Meanwhile, in the T20I bowling rankings, Sophie Ecclestone of England is in the top spot. Indian spin-bowler Deepti Sharma is in this list in 6th place with 703 points. Deepti is not only occupying a place in the bowling rankings but also the all-rounder rankings. She claims the 4th position in Women’s T20I Player All-Rounder rankings.
