Suryakumar Yadav dethrones Pakistan’s M.Rizwan as Top T20I batter

Impressive performances against Australia and South Africa helped India’s star batter Suryakumar Yadav secure the top spot in the latest ICC T20 Batting Ranking.

Yadav, 32, edged closer to Pakistani wicketkeeper batter Mohammad Rizwan in recent times. The race to be the top-ranked T20I batter in the world intensified earlier as two players from rival sides, tried their utmost to bag the coveted spot.

Indian flamboyant batter Suryakumar was at number 4 but his recent knocks helped him dethrone the Pakistan opener who stayed intact on the much-sought slot of top batter in the T20 format after Babar’s dismissal.

Yadav just played a remarkable innings that propelled him to a career high in the T20I rankings; to do so, he produced back-to-back half tonnes against the Netherlands and South Africa.
