Looking at the Men’s T20I Batting Rankings, Pakistan captain Babar continues to hold the No. 1 spot in the T20I rankings as a T20I batsman. It seems that his place is in danger, India’s progressive veteran young batsman is constantly marching towards Lakshya with his skills.

Recently India achieved a perfect 4-1 series win in the T20I series against West Indies and cut Babar’s lead at the top of the batsmen’s rankings.

The ICC on Wednesday released the latest set of rankings and Shreyas Iyer and Rishabh Pant was among the biggest movers in the race for the top ranking hots ahead of the ICC T20 World Cup in Australia later this year.

Shreyas Iyer hit an impressive half-century during the fifth and final match of the series in Florida to jump six places in the batsmen’s rankings to 19th.

Pant finished the series with 115 as the second leading run-scorer of the draw, with his quick 44 in the fourth match as the left-hander jumped seven places to 59th.
