The recent ICC Men’s T20I Player Rankings have been released. India’s all-rounder Hardik Pandya and batsman Suryakumar Yadav have significantly improved. This is a result of their outstanding performances in the first T20I of their three-match series against Australia on Tuesday in Mohali.
Yadav advanced one spot to third place in the ICC Men’s T20I Player’s Rankings after earning 46 points in 25 balls with a 780 rating.
