Indian captain Virat Kohli moved to the 7th spot in the latest ICC T20I rankings for batsmen, while KL Rahul remained static at the no.3 position. Kohli and Rahul are the only two Indians to feature in the top-10 list of players rankings in all three categories -- batsman, bowlers, and all-rounders.
With 816 points, Rahul is behind Dawid Malan (915) and Babar Azam (820) in the list, while Kohli has 697 points in his kitty. Kohli is ranked inside the top-10 in all the three formats, being no.1 in ODI batting rankings and occupying second place in Test batting rankings.
New Zealand’s Tim Seifert attained career-best ninth position after a fine run in the home T20I series against Pakistan, with an aggregate of 176 runs. On the other hand, Tim Southee’s six wickets in the series propelled him to 7th position in the rankings.
Southee has thus reached the top 10 in all three formats during his career, having achieved career-best spots of fourth in Tests and ninth in ODIs.
The T20 bowlers and all-rounders' rankings are being headed by the Afghanistan duo of Rashid Khan and Mohammad Nabi respectively.
