  • Jemimah, Nida, Singh and Nigar among others to gain in latest weekly update carried out on Tuesdays

India’s Deepti Sharma has reached career best positions among bowlers and all-rounders in the MRF Tyres ICC Women’s T20I Player Rankings after some fine performances over the past week in the Asia Cup being played in Sylhet, Bangladesh.

Sharma grabbed three wickets against Pakistan and two each against Bangladesh and Thailand to move up three slots and reach a career-best-equaling third position, which she had first attained in November 2019. She has overtaken South Africa fast bowler Shabnim Ismail and now only trails England spinners Sophie Ecclestone and Sarah Glenn.

Sharma has also moved up one slot to 35th among batters and is ranked third among all-rounders after overtaking Australia’s Ashleigh Gardner. Sharma’s number three position among all-rounders is also a career-best-equaling attainment.

India’s Renuka Singh (up three slots to eighth), Sneh Rana (up 30 places to 15th) and Pooja Vastrakar (up seven places to 28th) have progressed in the rankings for bowlers along with Bangladesh’s Sanjida Akter (up 25 places to 24th), Sri Lanka’s Inoka Ranaweera (up eight places to 32nd), Pakistan’s Tuba Hassan (up 30 places to 37th) and Thailand’s Thipatcha Putthawong (up 44 places to 37th).

In the rankings for batters, India’s Jemimah Rodrigues has moved from eighth to sixth position while Bangladesh captain Nigar Sultana (up three places to 22nd) and her team-mate Murshida Khatun (up 10 places to 27th) have also gained.

Pakistan all-rounder Nida Dar, who smashed a match-winning 56 not out off 37 balls against India, has advanced five places to 39th position. She has also moved up a slot to take seventh position in the list of all-rounders.

The United Arab Emirates’ Kavisha Egodage has gained three slots to reach 53rd position among batters in the latest update, which takes into account performances of matches completed till Monday.
