The Indian opener Smriti Mandhana has made great progress in both T20 Internationals and ODIs, climbing up the ICC T20I Rankings to achieve the career-best No. 2 position. She was well rewarded for her great performance by moving up in the batting rankings. This is a result of her recent match-winning efforts in England.
She rose to the ranks in T20Is after scoring an unbeaten 79 in Derby’s second T20I. The Indian opener maintained her form in the ODI series after scoring 111 runs in the three-match series against England. Mandhana led the squad to victory in the opening game with a well-rounded 91. She has climbed three slots to No. 7 in the ODI rankings.
Mandhana has surpassed Meg Lanning in the T20I rankings after moving up to third place in August. With a total of 743 rating points, Beth Mooney has held the top rank, 12 points ahead of Mandhana, after leading the CWG 2022 run-scorers leaderboard.
