England batsman Dawid Malan has now attained the highest ever ranking points by a T20 International (T20I) player, stacking up 915 points, thanks to his brilliant performance in the series against South Africa in which he scored 173 runs from three innings. As a result of their 3-0 whitewash over South Africa, England have now toppled Australia as the No. 1 ranked team in T20Is.

Malan was also awarded the player of the series, which included a match-winning unbeaten 47-ball 99 in the third T20I at Newlands, Cape Town. England started the series with 271 points and are now level with Australia on 275, but just ahead by a few decimal points. 

Among other noticeable movements, leg-spinner Adil Rashid has jumped three places into No. 4, just one place behind his career-best spot, which he achieved in November 2018. The top seven bowlers are all spinners, with Tabraiz Shamsi South Africa’s top-ranked bowler at No. 5.

In the other recently-concluded series that saw New Zealand beat West Indies 2-0, fast bowler Lockie Ferguson has leapfrogged 45 places into 32nd, while West Indies skipper, who smashed 103 runs at a strike-rate of 198 has jumped 18 places into 57th rank. With the series loss, West Indies have slipped behind Afghanistan to 10th place, while South Africa and New Zealand retain their fifth and sixth spots respectively.
