Ashleigh Gardner and Meg Lanning rise in the ICC T20I Rankings

  • +1

Australia all-rounder Ashleigh Gardner and captain Meg Lanning have advanced in the MRF Tyres ICC Women’s T20I Player Rankings after finishing as the leading run-scorers in their three-match home series against New Zealand that they won 2-1.

Ashleigh Gardner

Gardner’s series-topping 90 runs, which came in only two innings, won her the player of the series award and lifted her seven places to a career best-equalling 18th position among batters. Lanning, who has been top-ranked in both ODIs and T20Is in the past, has advanced one spot to take fifth position after aggregating 71 runs, the second highest in the series.

Australia leg-spinner Georgia Wareham has reached a career best-equalling 10th position after her five wickets in the series helped her advance five places, while left-arm spinner Sophie Molineux (up two places to 13th) and seam bowler Delissa Kimmince (up eight places to 22nd) have also progressed in the bowlers’ list.

For New Zealand, former captain Suzie Bates and present captain Sophie Devine have retained their second and fourth positions, respectively, while another former captain, left-hander Amy Satterthwaite, has reentered the rankings in 35th position after finishing as the highest scorer from her side with 69 runs. Satterthwaite was on maternity leave for 18 months, during which she missed this year’s ICC Women’s T20 World Cup in Australia.

Amelia Kerr, player of the match on Wednesday, retains fourth position among bowlers while Devine has gained eight slots to reach 26th position, still a long away from her career-best fifth position attained 10 years ago.

Sarah Glenn

For England, Natalie Sciver remains the only batter in the top 10 and is now second among all-rounders. Tammy Beaumont (up three places to 24th) and Amy Jones (up four places to 25th) have moved up after contributing in excess of 100 runs each in their side’s 5-0 defeat of former T20 World champions West Indies.

In the MRF Tyres ICC Women’s T20I Team Rankings, Australia, England and New Zealand retain the top three positions with the West Indies in sixth place.

West Indies’s hard-hitting opener Deandra Dottin has advanced five places to reach 15th position after amassing 185 runs in the series including two fifties while captain Stafanie Taylor has gained four places to reach 52nd position among bowlers.
