Rashid Khan is now the No.1 ranked T20I and ODI bowler

Afghanistan leg-spinner Rashid Khan and New Zealand opener Colin Munro both top the ICC T20I rankings for bowlers and batsmen. Solid performances in the T20I series against Zimbabwe helped Rashid achieve his career-best T20I ranking while Munro regained top spot after his performances in the Trans-Tasman series that also saw Glenn Maxwell become the No.1 ranked T20I all-rounder.

Among Indian batsmen, Virat Kohli moved down three spots to No.6, KL Rahul dropped down two spots to No.8 and Rohit Sharma is now in 17th place (down two spots) while Shikhar Dhawan was the biggest gainer as he went up 14 places to a career-best 28th spot.

Jasprit Bumrah, who was in fourth place before the series, is down to fifth while Bhuvneshwar Kumar's incredible performances meant that he jumped up 20 places to a career-best 12th spot. Leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal also moved up two spots to 14th place.

Among the top ten, Colin Munro's 176 in the T20I tri-series featuring Australia and England helped him gain three slots to go to the top of the rankings and Martin Guptill waltzed into the top ten after gaining six places to finish fifth in the latest update.

Among the top ten bowlers, Ish Sodhi is in second spot while Samuel Badree (up two spots) and Imad Wasim (up three spots) moved up to third and fourth. Mitchell Santner dropped five spots to finish sixth. Adil Rashid (up eight places to 15th) and Andrew Tye in the 49th spot (up 53 places) were the other major movers.

In the all-rounders' rankings, Glenn Maxwell's 233 runs and three wickets in the tri-series helped him overtake Shakib Al Hasan to the top spot.

The latest update includes all performances in the Trans-Tasman tri-series that was won by Australia, India's 2-1 win over South Africa, Afghanistan's win over Zimbabwe and Sri Lanka's 2-0 away win over Bangladesh.
