Dubai. Australia opener Travis Head became the world’s number one batsman by defeating India’s Suryakumar Yadav in the latest T20 International rankings released by the International Cricket Council on Wednesday. Suryakumar Yadav was at the top since December 2023. Head achieved the number one ranking due to his brilliant performance in the current T20 World Cup. However, Australia is out of the tournament. Head scored 255 runs in the tournament with the help of two half-centuries, including an innings of 76 runs against India in the Super Eight match. Head is two points ahead of Suryakumar (842 points).

Suryakumar has slipped to second place but he has a chance to regain the number one ranking as India have made it to the semi-finals of the T20 World Cup and this batsman will get more opportunities. England’s Phil Salt and Pakistan captain Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan are also included in the top five. West Indies’ Johnson Charles is the only new player to make it to the top 10. He has gained four places. Afghanistan’s star batsman Rahmanullah Gurbaz has also gained five places. India’s fast bowling attack leader Jasprit Bumrah has jumped 44 places to reach 24th position while spinner Kuldeep Yadav is also at 11th position with a gain of 20 places.

Spin all-rounder Axar Patel is the top Indian bowler at eighth position. England’s Adil Rashid tops the bowling rankings. Afghanistan captain Rashid Khan is in second place due to his impressive performance in the T20 World Cup. Josh Hazlewood is at fourth place after Wanindu Hasaranga with a gain of three places. Marcus Stoinis has lost the top spot in the all-rounders’ list to Sri Lanka’s Hasaranga after a brief stay at the top. Stoinis has slipped to fourth place. Afghanistan’s Mohammad Nabi is second and India’s Hardik Pandya is third. West Indies’ Roston Chase is at 12th place in the all-rounders’ list with a gain of 17 places.
