India's Kuldeep Yadav and Australia's Adam Zampa made giant strides to move into the top-five of ICC Men's player rankings for T20I bowlers on Monday.
The latest rankings were updated after the one-off T20I between Australia and South Africa and the T20I series between Australia and India.
Kuldeep has jumped 20 places to claim the No.3 spot while Zampa gained 17 places to occupy the fifth spot. This is the first time either of the spinners have been in the top five of the T20 bowlers rankings. The pair edged out pacers Jasprit Bumrah (India) and Mustafizur Rahman (Bangladesh) out of the top-20 to make the spinners to pacers ratio 13:7 in the top-20 list.
South Africa's Imran Tahir lost three places to go ninth while India's Yuzvendra Chahal lost seven places go to No.11 in the rankings. Australian pace duo of Billy Stanlake (14th) and Andrew Tye (18th) lost five and eight places respectively.
South Africa's duo of Chris Morris and Andile Phehlukwayo have improved their rankings outside the top 20. Morris is now ranked 27th (up by six places) while Phehlukwayo is ranked 38th (up by four places).
In the batsmen's rankings, India's Shikhar Dhawan gained the most. He scored 76 in the first T20I at the Gabba and 41 in the third match at Sydney while the second was washed out and his great show in the T20 series against Australia helped him rise five places to a career-high of 11.
Babar Azam of Pakistan, Rashid Khan of Afghanistan and Glenn Maxwell of Australia retained the places as the top-ranked batsman, bowler and all-rounder.
