Leg-spinner Ravi Bishnoi has become the new No. 1 bowler in ICC T20I rankings after his dream run in the recently-concluded T20I series against Australia. Bishnoi joins an elite list of Indian bowlers, including Jasprit Bumrah, who have reached the summit of the bowling rankings in Men's T20I.

Ravi Bishnoi joins Suryakumar Yadav as India hold the top spot in both batting and bowling rankings in Men's T20I cricket. Ravi Bishnoi replaced Afghanistan spinner Rashid Khan from the top spot. The Lucknow Super Giants star was ranked No.5 last week and he has vaulted 5 spots to dethrone the Afghanistan spin sensation.

Suryakumar Yadav continues to hold the No. 1 spot in batting rankings after having found success in his maiden assignment as the T20I captain. Under Suryakumar, a young Indian side defeated Australia 4-1 in the T20I series.

Ravi Bishnoi had 664 points when he was placed No. 5 last week, but the heroics against Australia saw him earn 34 more points. Bishnoi, with 699 points, has 7 more than Rashid Khan, who had held the top spot since March 2023.

Ravi Bishnoi was the leading wicket-taker in the T20I series against Australia, picking up 9 wickets in just 5 matches. It's a sensational achievement for Bishnoi, who made his T20I debut only in February 2022. He has played 21 matches and has picked up 34 wickets.

With his recent

showings, Ravi Bishnoi has put his hand up and reminded the selectors that he is a key contender for the T20 World Cup in 2024. Bishnoi faces stiff competition from the likes of Axar Patel, Ravindra Jadeja, and Kuldeep Yadav for the highly-competitive spinners' slots.

Meanwhile, Ruturaj Gaikwad retained his 7th spot in the ICC Batting Rankings. Gaikwad hit 223 runs in 5 matches in the recently-concluded T20I series. He hit a hundred in the 3rd T20I in Guwahati, but it ended in vain after a Glenn Maxwell special.

Hardik Pandya, who led India in 11 T20Is in 2023, remains in the 3rd spot in the ICC T20I All-rounders' ranking. He has been out of action since the ankle injury he suffered in the World Cup 2023 game against Bangladesh.

Suryakumar Yadav had a hit and miss T20I series with the bat despite starting it on a high with a match-winning 80 off just 42 balls. He finished with 133 runs across 5 innings.

However, Suryakumar continues to hold the No. 1 spot. He had a health lead over 2nd-placed Mohammad Rizwan of Pakistan.
