Smriti Mandhana Bats Her Way to the Top 10 ICC Women’s ODI Rankings

    Smriti Mandhana, the swash buckling Indian Opener has batted her way to the top 10 of the latest ICC Women’s ODI Rankings, while Mithali Raj finds herself loosing the top rankings. England’s Natalie Sciver got the biggest jumper climbing four spots to the sixth.

    The ICC Women’s ODI Rankings saw a host of changes in places in comparison to the one it released weeks ago. Alyssa Healy (730) still continues to lead the table with three other fellow Australian players all gaining two positions each to break into the top five. Beth Mooney, Meg Lanning and Rachael Haynes, all of whom have had a pretty good World Cup so far.

    There was no change to the No.1 slot on the bowling side of things, with spinner Sophie Ecclestone well above fellow left-arm tweaker Jess Jonassen, who remains in second.

    South African quicks take up fourth, fifth and sixth, with Shabnim Ismail edging past Marizanne Kapp. Ayabonga Khaka’s two-place jump means she leapfrogs Jhulan Goswami and Ellyse Perry, an indication that the Proteas’ bowling success has been a collective.

    South Africa’s Laura Wolvaardt, too, has had a good campaign so far which has seen her move up to third, two places from her last ranking at five. Meanwhile, Indian skipper Mithali Raj, who is yet to provide some exploits with the bat has fallen down from 7th to eight. This records yet another dip after the player slipped three places to seventh in the previous ranking.

    New Zealand’s Amy Satterthwaite too saw a fall in her rankings by five places and now finds herself joint on the eighth spot. Another cricketer at the top who has a huge fall in her rankings is England’s Tammy Beaumont, who finds herself placed at the 7th spot, slipping down from number 2.

    Just like in the batting, there is no chance in the number one spot as England’s Sophie Ecclestone continues to remain atop the rankings. There has been no change to the number two and three spots as well with Australian duo Jess Jonassen and Megan Schutt retaining places.
