Sciver-Brunt maintains his lead in the latest ODI batting rankings update.

After the latest update to the MRF Tyres ICC Women’s Player Rankings, England superstar Nat Sciver-Brunt has pulled further ahead as the game’s leading ODI batter.

Sciver-Brunt hit a record-breaking century in England’s third ICC Women’s Championship One-Day International triumph over Sri Lanka, reaching three figures in only 66 balls, the fastest for an England women’s player. She finished with 120 from 74 balls, hitting 18 fours and one six.

After the performance, the all-rounder’s 807-point rating is the third-highest for an English women’s player in ODI batting ranking history. Only Claire Taylor (814) and Sarah Taylor (812), who both achieved their ratings in July 2009, are higher than the 31-year-old.

On the Sri Lankan side, Hasini Perera was one of the few players to provide some relief to England’s push, rising 26 places to 57th (325) after three innings in the series.

While there was only one change in the top ten bowling rankings (Ayabonga Khaka moving up to seventh and leapfrogging Kate Cross), there were significant changes in the top 20.

Charlie Dean’s 5/31 in the third ODI against Sri Lanka propelled her to a career-high 12th place on the list (571 points), while Pakistan is led by Nida Dar (up two spaces to 19th) and Nashra Sandhu (up one spot to 15th). Sadia Iqbal, a compatriot, also made an impression, rising 13 ranks into the top 50 with hauls of 2-32 and 2-26 against South Africa.

In the absence of the injured and top-ranked Sophie Ecclestone, England’s Sarah Glenn stepped up, taking five wickets in the ODI series against Sri Lanka to move up 12 places to 52nd (328).

While her batting stole the show, it wasn’t all good news in the latest update for Sciver-Brunt, who slid from first to third on the ODI all-rounder rankings.

After Sciver-Brunt’s collapse, Ash Gardner (389) rose to the top spot, with Hayley Matthews (382) also rising above the England stalwart (360).

With a great performance in England (11th, 190), Chamari Athapaththu draws closer to the top ten, while there were a lot of notable movers in minor spots.

The next players to compete higher up are Charlie Dean (up three spots to equal 15th) and Salma Khatun (up two spaces to equal 17th), with Nadine de Klerk (up six spots to equal 38th) also making her impact.
