Suryakumar leapfrogs Babar Azam to 3rd spot in ICC T20I rankings

DUBAI: India’s Suryakumar Yadav has replaced Pakistan captain Babar Azam to occupy the third spot in the T20I batter’s list in the latest ICC Men’s Player Rankings issued on Wednesday.
Yadav impressed with a classy 46 during India’s four-wicket loss to Australia in the opening match of their three-game series at Mohali on Tuesday. The knock helped him to close in on Pakistan opener Mohammad Rizwan at the top of the T20I batter’s chart.
The right-hander dethroned Babar from the third spot, with Rizwan now just 45 rating points ahead of him.
Rizwan hit a half-century in Pakistan’s loss to England in Karachi on Tuesday and maintains a narrow advantage at the top of the rankings with a career-high total of 825 rating points.
South Africa’s Aiden Markram (792 rating points) is in the second position ahead of Yadav (780).
