ICC Palyers' rankings: India's star batter Suryakumar Yadav has inched closer to becoming the World No.1 T20I batter in the World. In the latest released ICC Players' rankings, Yadav has scaled one position up after overtaking South Africa's Aiden Markram to now rank No.2 batter in the World. Also, Pakistan captain Babar Azam has entered the top three again as he too went past Markram. 

Suryakumar has performed well for the Indian team in recent times with his bat again doing the talking against Australia in the recently concluded series. Yadav scored a crucial knock of 69 off 36 balls and partnered with Virat Kohli to help India win the third match. He was also among the runs in the Asia Cup 2022 with 139 runs in his name in 5 matches. He played a blistering 68* off 26 deliveries and a 34-run knock against Sri Lanka. Yadav is  801 rating points, 2 more than Babar Azam. However, Pakistan's Mohammad Rizwan has kept his first spot in the chart with 861 ratings.


Also, Pakistan's skipper Babar Azam, who did not had a good Asia Cup has made a strong comeback in the ongoing T20I series against England as he scored his second century in the T20I format. Notably, Afghanistan's Mohammad Nabi has pipped Bangladesh's Shakib Al Hasan and has become the new No.1 all-rounder. Nabi now has 246 rating points, 3 more than Shakib. 

Along with these players, several others have also made big moves in the latest rankings. England's Harry Brook has made big gains in the T20I batting charts, following decent outings against Pakistan. Brooks scored 31, 81* and 34 in the previous three matches which saw the English batter move a huge 118 places to now rank No.29.
