Suryakumar keeps No.2 ranking among T20I batters

New Zealand's Devon Conway entered the top five following his performances in the ongoing tri-series against Pakistan and Bangladesh

New Zealand top-order batter Devon Conway has jumped into the top five on the latest T20I Batter Rankings while India's Suryakumar Yadav remained second in the list behind Pakistan opener Mohammad Rizwan. 

Conway has scored 219 runs from four innings in the ongoing T20I tri-series against Bangladesh and Pakistan helping New Zealand reach the final. The left-hander made an unbeaten 70 against Bangladesh and another unbeaten 49 against Pakistan to leapfrog Aaron Finch and Dawid Malan in the rankings.

Meanwhile, England quicks Mark Wood and Reece Topley were the big movers in the Bowling Rankings with the latter finishing just outside the top 10 by jumping three places to reach career-best rating points of 646.

Wood impressed with nine wickets from three matches against Pakistan and Australia after returning from injury and moved 14 places to reach 18th. Meanwhile, Topley took two wickets in the Perth T20I and is England's leading wicket-taker in T20Is this year.

Jos Buttler and Alex Hales too gained big points after a 132-run opening stand in the T20I in Perth. Buttler jumped up four places to No.22 while Alex Hales moved into the top 100.

Despite leading India to a 2-1 ODI series win over South Africa, Shikhar Dhawan dropped six places to 17th in the ODI batting rankings. Shreyas Iyer, who scored 191 runs from the three ODIs against South Africa, moved three places to 33rd. Sanju Samson, who scored 118 runs in the series, moved to 93rd.

Kuldeep Yadav's six wickets from the series saw him gain five places to 25th in the bowling rankings. Jasprit Bumrah kept his 10th place and is the only Indian the top-10 led by New Zealand's Trent Boult.
