Harmanpreet, Renuka make huge gains in ICC ODI rankings

India skipper Harmanpreet Kaur moved up to fifth among ODI batters while Renuka Singh Thakur moved up by 35 places among bowlers

India captain Harmanpreet Kaur on Tuesday reached fifth position in the latest ICC Women’s ODI Batting Rankings. Several Indian players also climbed up the rankings following their 3-0 sweep of the ODI series against England.

Kaur, who smashed a match-winning 143 not out off 111 deliveries in the second match in Canterbury, has gained four slots while opener Smriti Mandhana, who scored 40 and 50 in the two matches, has inched up one place to take sixth position.

Allrounder Deepti Sharma’s unbeaten 68 not out in the third match at Lord’s has lifted her eight places to 24th position among batters.

Pooja Vastrakar (up four places to 49th) and Harleen Deol (up 46 places to 81st) are other India players to move up the batters’ list. Renuka Singh Thakur has galloped 35 places to take 35th position after grabbing four wickets each in the two matches. Pace legend Jhulan Goswami, who called time on her 20-year international career, retired in fifth position.

England’s Danny Wyatt, who scored 65 in the second match, has gained two slots to reach 21st position among batters while Amy Jones is up four places to 30th. Offspinner Charlie Dean has progressed 24 places to get to 62nd among batters and one slot to 19th among bowlers.

West Indies captain Hayley Matthews has grabbed the No. 1 position for all-rounders in the ODI format for the first time in her career after scoring 88 runs and grabbing five wickets in a 2-1 series win over New Zealand. Mathews, who has been a top ranked all-rounder in T20Is in the past, has also moved up three slots to 18th among batters and two places to sixth among bowlers.

Lauren Down of New Zealand (up 15 places to 55th) is another batter to progress after the series while Hannah Rowe (up two places to 33rd), Amelia Kerr (up four places to 11th) and Jess Kerr (up one place to 21st) have moved up in the list for bowlers. West Indies leg-spinner Afy Fletcher is now in 41st position.
