New Delhi, March 2 : England opener Tammy Beaumont has jumped five places to grab the top position among batters in the women’s ODI rankings after an excellent display in the three-match series against New Zealand which her team won 2-1.
The 29-year-old right hander has overtaken the likes of West Indies’ Stafanie Taylor and New Zealand’s Amy Satterthwaite to top the list and now leads Australia captain Meg Lanning by 16 points.
This is for the first time in her 12-year ODI career that Beaumont is No. 1, her previous best being fourth position in July 2019. She has gained a whopping 49 points after topping the series with 231 runs, which comprised knocks of 71, 72 not out and 88 not out.
Her team mate Natalie Sciver has moved into the top 10 after scoring 96 runs in the series while captain Heather Knight has progressed three slots to reach 13th position after aggregating 135 runs. Amy Jones is another England batter to move up the rankings, from 27th to joint-25th position.
Sciver, who bowls medium pace, has progressed 12 places to a career-best 22nd in the list of bowlers after finishing with five wickets in the series. Her effort with both bat and ball also resulted in her moving up three places to fifth position in the list of all-rounders led by Ellyse Perry of Australia.
Other England bowlers to gain in the new weekly system of updating, which will see women player rankings updated each Tuesday and those for men each Wednesday, include Katherine Brunt (up two places to ninth), Sophie Ecclestone (up one place to 14th) and Sarah Glenn (up three places to 44th).
