Australia’s Beth Mooney has toppled Sri Lanka captain Chamari Athapaththu to become the new World No.1 ICC Women’s ODI batter. The opener returned with scores of unbeaten 81 and 33 in the first two matches of the ongoing three-match Ashes series.

Meanwhile, England's Natalie Sciver-Brunt, who smashed an unbeaten 111 off 99 balls in the second ODI, climbed up two spots with a career-best rating of 763. She was equally handy with the ball, picking up two wickets as the hosts won the first ODI by two wickets in Bristol.

With her all-round performance, Sciver has regained World No.1 spot in the Women’s ICC ODI rankings for all-rounders as West Indies captain Hayley Mathews dropped to No.2.

Australian all-rounder Ash Gardner also continued to shine with both bat and ball. With three wickets and 54 runs in the first two ODIs, she moved up two places to No.5 in all-rounders rankings and four spots to No.8 among bowlers’ rankings.

England captain Heather Knight, who scored an unbeaten 75 in the first ODI to guide her team to the finishing line, jumped four places to No.14 in the batters’ rankings.

Meanwhile, the Bangladesh players have also been rewarded following their memorable win against India in the first ODI. Captain Nigar Sultana, who top-scored with 39 runs in the match, has risen four spots to No. 31 in the ODI rankings for batters.

Among the bowlers, Marufa Akter, who returned with figures of 4/29, jumped into the top 100. Sultana Khatun, who finished with figures of 1/20, also made it into the top 100.
