Following the most recent weekly update to the ICC Women's T20I Player Rankings, India opener Smriti Mandhana and off-spinning all-rounder Deepti Sharma have climbed up close to the top spot for batters and bowlers, respectively.
After striking an unbeaten 51 off 25 balls to lead her team to an eight-wicket victory against Sri Lanka in the Asia Cup final in Sylhet, Bangladesh, Mandhana, a top-ranked hitter in ODIs, has climbed one spot to a career-best-equaling second position in T20Is. Mandhana is on 730 rating points, 13 points behind Beth Mooney of Australia.
Following a haul of three for seven against Thailand in an earlier match of the competition, Sharma has also moved up to a career-best second position after giving up only seven runs off four overs in the final. With 13 wickets, Deepti tied for the joint-most wickets in the event and has 742 rating points, 14 points less than England spinner Sophie Ecclestone.
