ICC Cricket Rankings: Beth Mooney recovered the top spot for hitters in the ICC women’s T20I rankings. After dominating the CWG 2022 run-scorers list with 179 runs from five innings. Tahlia McGrath (No. 5) has joined Mooney, Meg Lanning (No. 2), and Alyssa Healy (No. 9) in the top ten. Jemimah Rodrigues, who finished second to Australia in Birmingham, is now one of three Indians. Smriti Mandhana (No. 4) and Shafali Verma (No. 6) are the other two who finished in the top ten.

Mooney had fallen behind Lanning in the most recent rankings update. But her scores of 179 runs throughout the competition including 70* against Pakistan, and 36 against New Zealand in the semifinal. As well as a 41-ball 61 against India in the championship match pushed her back beyond Lanning to the top. Even though Lanning only scored 91 runs in Birmingham, it was enough to retain her in the second position despite her less than stellar performance.

Rodrigues recently experienced a career lull, but she has since recovered well, amassing 146 runs at CWG 2022. Her greatest performances came against Barbados (56 not out) and England in the semi-final (44 not out). Also Australia in the championship match (33). Only Mandhana, an Indian, scored more in the competition i.e 159.

Sophie Ecclestone maintained her position as the top bowler after taking five wickets in Birmingham. But there were some changes in the top ten below her. Katherine Brunt moved up to No. 2 with five wickets of her own. On the other hand Megan Schutt and Shabnim Ismail both climbed two spots to Nos. 4 and 5, respectively. Sarah Glenn, who was ranked second, is now in third place.

Sophie Devine had a remarkable campaign on the personal front. Meanwhile, Ash Gardner, who scored 96 runs and took five wickets in Birmingham, has risen to No. 2, surpassing Nat Sciver. On that list, Deepti Sharma is now in fourth place.

Some South African players still improved even though their squad didn’t get to the final four. Nonkululeko Mlaba has moved up to eighth among bowlers, moving up 14 rankings. Batters Anneke Bosch and Tazmin Brits have also moved up, moving up five and six slots, respectively.
