Kohli rises to fourth spot in ICC T20I rankings

New Delhi, March 24 (TIWN) India captain Virat Kohli rose to the fourth spot in the ICC T20I rankings for batsmen on Wednesday. Kohli scored an unbeaten 80 off 52 balls in the fifth T20I against England while opening the innings with Rohit Sharma, who moved up to the 14th position.

Kohli overtook K.L. Rahul in the rankings, who took the Indian captain's previous fifth position. 

Rohit's 34-ball 64 in that match has helped him move up three places to 14th in the latest weekly rankings update, which took into account the three-match Afghanistan-Zimbabwe series in Abu Dhabi apart from the last two matches of the India-England series.  In other gains, Shreyas Iyer has moved up five places to a career-best 26th position while Suryakumar Yadav and wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant too have made rapid progress. 

Yadav, who debuted in the second match of the series but could not garner any points as he did not get to bat, has pushed up from the bottom to 66th position after scores of 57 and 32, while Pant has moved up 11 places to 69th in the rankings.  Fast bowler Bhuvneshwar Kumar, named Man of the Match in the fifth T20I against England for his spell of 2/15, has moved up 21 places to 24th while Hardik Pandya has advanced 47 places to 78th.
