DUBAI (Dunya News) – Pakistan skipper Babar Azam jumped one place to third in latest T20I rankings issued by the International Cricket Council (ICC) on Wednesday.

The right-arm batsman has scored 90 runs in the three matches Pakistan have played so far in the ongoing T20 World Cup 2024.

His opening partner Mohammad Rizwan has slipped to fourth place in the latest batting rankings.

Afghanistan opener Rahmanullah Gurbaz in the leading run-scorer at the T20 World Cup thus far with 156 runs from two innings and the in-form right-hander moves up eight places to 12th and reaches a new career-high rating on the updated list for T20I batters.

India's Suryakumar Yadav remains well out in front of the T20I batter rankings, with England's Jos Buttler (up two spots to fifth), West Indies' Brandon King (up one rung to seventh) and Australia's Travis Head (up six spots to 10th) all gaining ground inside the top 10 following good starts to the tournament.

Meanwhile, A strong start to the ICC Men's T20 World Cup 2024 has seen a host of players from Afghanistan make good ground on the updated player rankings.

Afghanistan’s unbeaten start to the ICC Men's T20 World Cup has seen one of their star performers rise to the top of the ICC Men's T20I All-Rounder Rankings.

The Asian side have won both of their contests in the USA and West Indies thus far at the 20-over showcase and a host of their players have been in scintillating touch with bat and ball.

Veteran Mohammad Nabi is the big winner in the latest rankings update, with the 39-year-old rising to the No.1 spot on the list for all-rounders following his recent two-wicket haul against New Zealand in Guyana.

Nabi jumps up two places to first on the updated T20I rankings for all-rounders, with Australia's Marcus Stoinis rising three places to claim second spot and previous No.1-ranked player Shakib Al Hasan drooping four rungs to fifth as a result of the major shake-up at the top.
