Pakistan’s left-arm spinner Imad Wasim has replaced Imran Tahir as the top-ranked bowler in Twenty20 Internationals. Imad, who was part of Pakistan’s Champions Trophy-winning squad, moved ahead of Tahir after the legspinner had poor outings in the two T20Is against England.
In the recent T20I rankings released Monday, India’s Jasprit Bumrah is placed at number two. While in the batsmen list, Virat Kohli continues to lead the pack, followed by Aaron Finch and Kane Williamson.
England are now No. 2 with 123 points in team rankings, two points ahead of Pakistan and two behind top-ranked New Zealand. South Africa after losing the series has dropped a point but retained the sixth spot, ahead of Australia.
T20I team rankings: 1 New Zealand (125) 2 England (123) 3 Pakistan (121) 4 India (118) 5 Windies (114) 6 South Africa (110) 7 Australia (110) 8 Sri Lanka (95) 9 Afghanistan (86) 10 Bangladesh (78).
