Star India opener Smriti Mandhana achieved a career-best world No. 2 rank in T20Is and climbed to the seventh spot in ODIs in the latest ICC Women’s Player Rankings, riding on her stupendous show against England. The left-handed batter had aggregated 111 runs in the three-match T20I series against England. The performance helped her jump two places.

Mandhana, a former top ranked batter in ODIs, also moved up three slots after a match-winning 91 in the first ODI against England. Among other Indians, skipper Harmanpreet Kaur has zoomed four spots to ninth place in ODIs, all-rounder Deepti Sharma gained one place to reach 32nd position and wicketkeeper Yastika Bhatia jumped eight places to 37th.

Deepti also climbed six places to 12th in bowlers’ list. In the T20I rankings, Kaur (up one place to 14th among batters) and bowler Renuka Singh (up three places to 10th among bowlers) made notable gains.
