India’s Suryakumar Yadav has become the number 1 batter in the ICC T20I rankings released on Wednesday.

“Yadav’s 51 not out off 25 balls against the Netherlands in Sydney and a valiant 68 off 40 against South Africa in Perth have helped him overtake New Zealand’s Devon Conway and Pakistan’s Mohammad Rizwan, who had held the top spot since 4 September this year,” ICC said in a press release.

Yadav is only the second Indian to claim the top position in T20I rankings after Virat Kohli.

New Zealand batter Glenn Phillips also moved up in the rankings, scaling his career-best seventh position after scores of 104 against Sri Lanka and 62 against England. South Africa batter Rilee Rossouw entered the top 10, after his 109 against Bangladesh.

England captain Jos Buttler also gained three places in the rankings, climbing to 14th position after scoring 73 against New Zealand.

Suryakumar produced a fine knock against Bangladesh, scoring 30 runs off just 16 balls.
