Rizwan takeover Babar as top-ranked batter in ICC T20I Batting Rankings


Mohammad Rizwan has overtaken Babar Azam as the top T20I batter in the latest ICC Men’s T20I Batting Rankings, ending Azam’s lengthy spell in that position. 

Rizwan has risen to the top of the T20I rankings because to his strong performance in the ongoing 2022 Asia Cup. In the tournament, Rizwan has already scored two incredible half-centuries, including the game-winning strike against India in the Super 4 stage match. 

Babar, on the other hand, hasn’t managed to score in any of his three tournament games thus far. He hasn’t performed at his peak, failing to register even one half-century in the tournament. 

The two Pakistani hitters have dominated the T20I rankings since last year and have been outstanding over the previous year. As the Men in Green prepare to get to the 2022 Asia Cup final, the pair will continue to work on raising their ranks.
