Virat Kohli Back In Top 5, KL Rahul Drops Points In The Latest T20I Rankings

Virat Kohli is back in the top 5 of the latest ICC T20I rankings for batsmen. The Indian captain in the last 2 T20Is has scored two outstanding half-centuries against England and has jumped two places in the new ICC T20I rankings.

Indian opener KL Rahul after failing miserably in the first 3 T20I against England has lost a lot of points and is now at number 4. Before the series, KL Rahul was comfortably placed at 3 but his scores of 1,0,0 resulted in him no longer being in the top 3 of the latest ICC T20I rankings for batsmen.

Virat Kohli Back In Top 5

Coming back to Virat Kohli he will have an opportunity to jump further in the rankings if he continues his brilliant form in the last 2 T20Is against England. The Indian captain lost 16 points when he got out for a duck in the first T20I against England. However, Kohli made a strong comeback and gained 29 points each after the second and third T20I and is now the number 5 T20I batsman in the newly released IPL rankings.

Here are the latest top 5 ICC T20I Rankings

1) Dawid Malan 894

2) Aaron Finch – 830
