Hardik Pandya, who was previously the number one T20I all-rounder, has been overtaken by Sri Lanka’s Wanindu Hasaranga. Pandya’s drop from the top position is a notable shift in the T20I rankings, especially since he was the first Indian to hold the number-one spot in this category. Although Pandya did not feature in the T20I series against Zimbabwe, his return for the upcoming series against Sri Lanka is highly anticipated.

Gaikwad Shines in Zimbabwe Series

Ruturaj Gaikwad, the captain of Chennai Super Kings, has seen a remarkable rise in the ICC T20I Batting Rankings. Following his impressive performances in the T20I series against Zimbabwe, Gaikwad has climbed 13 places to secure the seventh position in the batting rankings. His notable contribution included a crucial 77 off 47 balls in India’s commanding 100-run victory in the second T20I against Zimbabwe.

Suryakumar Yadav Retains Second Spot

Suryakumar Yadav, who was instrumental in India‘s T20 World Cup 2024 victory, remains in the second position in the ICC T20I Batting Rankings. Yadav continues to be a formidable force in T20I cricket, trailing only Australia’s Travis Head, who leads the rankings with 844 rating points. Yadav holds 821 rating points, with England’s Phil Salt (797), Pakistan’s Babar Azam (755), and Mohammad Rizwan (746) completing the top five.
