Pakistan all-format captain, Babar Azam, fell to fourth place in the ICC Men’s T20I rankings following a disappointing performance in the Asia Cup 2022, while Mohammad Rizwan retained the top spot.
Babar Azam, who scored only 68 runs in six innings and had a best of 30 in the competition, was dethroned by Mohammad Rizwan earlier this month.
Suryakumar Yadav, India’s middle-order batter, moved up to third place after scoring 46 runs off 25 balls in the series opener against Australia, while Aiden Markram of South Africa held onto second place.
Last month, Suryakumar’s sudden climb in T20I rankings raised questions over the ICC’s criteria when he moved to the second slot after overtaking Rizwan and Markram despite playing only 22 T20Is in his career.
Here are the latest rankings:
|2||Aiden Markram||South Africa||792|
|7||Devon Conway||New Zealand||683|
|8||Pathum Nissanka||Sri Lanka||677|
|10||Reeza Hendricks||South Africa||628|
