Seventeen year old Shafali Verma regained the No. 1 spot in the International Cricket Council T20I Batting Rankings for Women updated on Tuesday, January 25. Verma replaces Australia Beth Mooney at the top of the batting charts. Meanwhile, India's Smriti Mandana slipped to No. 4, dropping a spot on the list.

Shafali Verma last played T20I cricket in October 2021 and was in decent form in the Women's Big Bash League. Meanwhile, Smriti, who was named the ICC Women's Cricketer of the Year for 2021, was in fine form in Australia as she hit a fifty in the final

match of a 3-match T20I series last year.

Both Shafali and Smriti are part of India's squad for the New Zealand series in February which will be followed by the 50-over Women's World Cup in New Zealand.

Meanwhile, Sri Lanka's Chamari Athapaththu gained six positions to break into the top 10 of the batting charts after a superb performance in the Commonwealth Games Qualifiers, where she amassed 221 runs at an outstanding average and strike rate of 55.25 and 185.71 respectively. Athapathu is now sitting in eighth place in the rankings.
