Asian Games athletes are recognized with impressive ranking increases.

The most recent MRF Tyres ICC Women’s T20I Player Rankings have recognized several of the top players from the recent Asian Games Women’s Cricket Competition.

With a 19-run victory over Sri Lanka on Monday, India won their first gold medal at the Olympics. Harmanpreet Kaur’s team was aided by an outstanding performance from Jemimah Rodrigues (42 off 40 balls).

Rodrigues finished with 109 runs, was dismissed just once, and was thus duly rewarded by moving up two spots to 12th overall on the most recent T20I batter rankings.

Following the conclusion of the Asian Games, there was an even bigger reorganization behind England bowler Sophie Ecclestone at the top of the T20I bowler rankings, with Pakistan’s Nashra Sundhu and Sri Lanka’s Inoka Ranaweera reaping the most benefits.

The left-armers each took three wickets during the Games to set new career high ratings, with Sundhu moving up six spots to tie for seventh and Ranaweera moving up two spots to sixth.

In addition, the Pakistani veteran Nida Dar improved three spots to equal 20th on the same list and one spot to fifth on the rankings for T20I all-rounders. Bangladeshi youngster Sanjida Akter Meghla also reached a new rating high, rising 14 spots to 26th on the T20I bowler rankings.

Following the first game of the current series between South Africa and New Zealand, there was some movement at the top of the updated ODI rankings, with Proteas captain Laura Wolvaardt moving up the list for batters after a strong half-century in the series opener (up one spot to sixth).

Following her 71-run innings against the Proteas, right-hander Chloe Tryon moves up nine spots to equal 14th on the same list, while Nadine de Klerk climbs eight spots to equal 30th on the bowler rankings.
