Adil Rashid No.1 T20I Bowler -

In a recent development, England legspinner Adil Rashid overtook Afghanistan's Rashid Khan and India's Ravi Bishnoi to become the No. 1 ranked bowler in T20Is. This achievement came after Rashid took seven wickets in the first four T20Is of England's ongoing series in the West Indies. Rashid is now the second English player to reach the top spot in the ICC men's T20I rankings for bowlers, following offspinner Graeme Swann over a decade ago. Interestingly, Rashid's elevation to the top occurred a day after he went unsold during the IPL 2024 auction.

Babar tops the list in ODI's -

In other rankings, Pakistan batter Babar Azam displaced India opener Shubman Gill at the top of the ICC men's ODI rankings. Babar's rise to the top came after Gill was rested from India's ongoing series in South Africa. In the Test rankings, Kane Williamson remains the No. 1 batter, while Usman Khawaja moved up three places to fourth following Australia's win against Pakistan in Perth. Pat Cummins rose to third in the Test bowling rankings, Nathan Lyon to fifth, Mitchell Starc to eighth, and Josh Hazlewood to tenth. India offspinner R Ashwin remains the No. 1 ranked bowler in Tests.
