Kuldeep Yadav Gains 14 Places After West Indies’ Debacle


Kuldeep Yadav once again proved himself as the best spinner for India after India won the three T20I series against West Indies by a clean sweep. Indian captain Rohit Sharma stood as the solitary batsman to slam 4 T20I centuries for India. Virat Kohli was rested for this series and Rohit Sharma led the team for this series.  India stood at the top second team in the ICC T20I rankings with 127 points and they succeeded to preserve their position with this series victory. India gained three rating points with this win.


Rohit Sharma jumped to the seventh position in the ICC ratings and Shikhar Dhawan, who won the man of the match award for scoring 92 runs in the last match against West Indies on Sunday stood at the 16th position. Rohit Sharma climbed three positions to attain this rank. Kuldeep Yadav took 5 wickets from two games at an economy rate of 5.6 and clinched the man of the series title though he was rested for the third game on Sunday. Shikhar Dhawan stepped up five places to attain the 16th place in the ICC rating points.

Pakistan stood at the top of the rating table with 138 points by beating New Zealand by 3-0 and earlier they defeated Australia by 3-0. Mohammed Hafeez stood at the 53rd position by climbing 16 positions by slamming 132 runs at a strike rate of 145. He is the top most gainer from this series.

Australians will play South Africa in a T20I and India in a three T20I series. If they win that series by 4-0, they might displace India with 126 points but if the Kangaroos lose all the matches, they will slip down to the sixth position in the rating points.
