A new batter has risen to the top of the MRF Tires ICC Men’s T20Is rankings after his outstanding performance at the Asian Cup.
After losing the top spot in the ICC T20 batting rankings, Pakistani skipper Babar Azam has dropped further to third place according to the latest ICC T20I rankings.
Pakistan’s Babar captain was replaced by fellow countryman Mohammad Rizwan and failed to maintain his form in the 2022 T20 Asian Cup.
In Asian competition, the star hitter has scored just 68 runs in six games.
Kohli marked his first century at the T20 International after three long years, scoring a magnificent 276 runs at the 2022 T20 Asia Cup.
Thanks to his efforts, he climbed a total of 14 places in the T20I player rankings to about fifteenth place.
Bar Azam needs to score for Pakistan as he is considered the best batsman to get off to a good start by scoring in the early overs.
