Kuldeep Yadav picked up four wickets in the three-match T20I series vs Australia

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.
