Stafanie Taylor claimed the top spot of ICC ODI batter’s displacing Mithali Raj

She also moved up three places to 16th among bowlers and two places up to top among all-rounders.


West Indies skipper Stafanie Taylor dethroned India captain and star batter, Mithali Raj, from the top spot in the current ICC One-Day International rankings on Tuesday. Taylor reclaimed the top spot in both the batting and all-rounder rankings after a brilliant performance in the first ODI in Coolidge, which helped the West Indies beat Pakistan by five wickets.

Taylor’s Player of the Match performance of three for 29 and an unbeaten 105 has propelled her upward in all three rankings. She moved up four spots on the batter’s list, displacing Mithali at the top. She also moved up three places to 16th among bowlers and two places to first among all-rounders, replacing Australia’s Ellyse Perry.

Jhulan Goswami, a veteran, is ranked fifth among bowlers, while Deepti Sharma is ranked fifth among all-rounders. After a knock of 55 in the first match, England’s Natalie Sciver has moved up two places to ninth among batters in the T20I Player Rankings, while India’s all-rounder Deepti Sharma has moved up two places to 37th.

Poonam Yadav (up to five places to seventh) and Shikha Pandey (up to eight places to 27th) are India’s best gainers in the bowler’s list, while England’s Freya Davis has risen two places to 64th.
