India’s first ODI win in 23 years against England helped several Indian players gain a rise in Women’s ICC ODI Rankings. While captain Harmanpreet Kaur rises to the fifth position. Indian opener Smriti Mandhana jumps to number six.
Harmanpreet scored a total of 221 runs in three innings. However, the star batter Mandhana made a total of 181 runs in three innings. The Indian captain and vice-captain topped the overall run-scorers tally in the series. Hence, both of them gained a rise in the batting rankings.
Moreover, veteran Indian fast-bowler Jhulan Goswami finished her International career as the fifth-ranked bowler in ICC ODI Rankings. Regardless, Jhulan didn’t have a brilliant series against England Women in terms of wickets. As she only managed to pick three in three games. However, the senior player played her role by being the most economical bowler in the series. With an economy rate of 3.00 in 27 overs, Jhulan played an important part in India’s series sweep against the hosts.
Meanwhile, Renuka Thakur continues her sensational performance with the ball. As she was the most successful bowler across the two sides, with eight wickets. As a result, Renuka gained a 35-place rise in the ICC ODI Rankings Bowling that took her to No. 35.
