Wrist spinner Kuldeep Yadav grabs his career-best second position in the latest ICC T20 International Bowling rankings.
Kuldeep scalped two for 26 in the final T20I against New Zealand, which his side lost by four runs to go 2-1 down in the series.
There are no other Indian bowlers in the top-10. Kuldeep’s spin-bowling partner Yuzvendra Chahal, after an indifferent series against New Zealand, dropped six places to be 17th while Bhuvneshwar Kumar maintained his 18th rank.
In the batsmen’s list, Indian vice-captain Rohit Sharma swapped three places with compatriot KL Rahul, who didn’t feature in the recently-concluded series.
The batting chart is headed by talented Pakistani batsman Babar Azam.
