Suryakumar Yadav had an opportunity to secure the top spot in the ICC T20I Rankings for batters last week. However, he was rested for the fifth T20I against West Indies, allowing Pakistan captain Babar Azam to keep his place at the top.

For the first time in his T20I career, Yadav received a chance to open the innings for India during the series against the West Indies. He did a splendid job for the team, scoring 135 runs in four matches. Yadav ended the series as the highest run-scorer.

According to a report by the ICC, the decision to rest Yadav in the last T20I did not allow him to overtake Babar. The gap between the two players is 13 rating points.
