Meanwhile, Rohit Sharma moved 2 spots to the 13th spot in the ICC T20I men's Batting Rankings. KL Rahul, who had a fine run in the 3-match T20I series vs the Kiwis, moved a spot to 5th. He is the only Indian in the top 10 list. Pakistan skipper Babar Azam though continues to lead the rankings despite a poor show in the T20 series vs Bangladesh.
