Riyad, Mushfiq improve batting ratings in T20

Sports Reporter

Mahmuduallah Riyad and Mushfiqur Rahim among Bangladesh batsmen improved their places in the latest ICC T20I Player Rankings despite losing the Twenty20-series against improved Afghanistan.

Spin all-rounder Mahmudullah went four places up as he is now placed 33rd from 37th. Wicketkeeper-batsman Mushfiqur Rahim, on the other hand up, made three places progress. Currently, he is languishing at 41st place.

The spin all-rounder scored 88 runs from three matches and grabbed one wicket, whilst Mushfiqur mustered the identical 88 runs from the same number of matches in the T20 series that drew huge flaks from all the people and fans at home and abroad.

However, Afghanistan spin sensation Rashid Khan coupled with Mohammad Nabi and Mujeeb Ur Rahman made remarkable improvements in the ICC T20I Player Rankings after playing important parts in the shocking 3-0 defeat of Bangladesh in the T20-series in Dehradun.

Rashid Khan, 19, consolidated his position at the top after his player of the series effort of 12 wickets. He gained 54 points to finish with 813 points, 80 more than second-placed Shadab Khan (Pakistan).

The in-form leg-spinner Rashid, who was named ICC’s Associate Player of the Year for 2017, touched a career-high rating of 816 points after a haul of four for 12 in the second match.

By dint of sheer performance, Mohammad Nabi stepped into top 10 bowlers as the second Afghanistan bowler after Rashid Khan. Nabi gained 11 spots and reached a career-best eighth rank after taking four wickets, while Mujeeb jumped 62 slots to 51st place in the latest update, which also takes into account the T20I between the Windies and the ICC World XI played at Lord’s on 31 May as a fund-raiser for Caribbean stadia damaged by hurricanes last year.

There has been no change of places in the MRF Tyres ICC T20I Team Rankings with Afghanistan and Bangladesh retaining their eighth and 10th positions, respectively. Afghanistan though have gained four points to reach 91 points while Bangladesh have lost five and are on 70, only four more than Scotland, who can overtake them in an upcoming two-match series against top-ranked Pakistan on 12 and 13 June.
