Axar Patel leads Indian charge in ICC T20I rankings



Axar Patel has advanced 12 places to a career-best fifth position among bowlers as a clutch of players made significant gains in the ICC T20I Player Rankings after strong performances in the series against Afghanistan.

Axar's hauls of 2/23 and 2/16 in India's identical six-wicket wins over Afghanistan in the first two T20Is of their three-match series have also lifted him two places to 16th among all-rounders after the latest weekly rankings update on Wednesday that takes into consideration all matches completed till Tuesday.

Opener Yashaswi Jaiswal's 34-ball 68 in the first T20I in Indore has lifted him seven places to a career-best sixth position, while other left-hander Shivam Dube's successive unbeaten knocks of 60 and 63 have helped him shoot up from 265th to 58th.

Another player to make notable gains is New Zealand's Finn Allen, whose two innings of 34 off 15 and 74 off 41 helped his team win the first two matches against Pakistan and lifted him 11 places to 16th among batters.
