KL Rahul (the potato) has retained his position in the ICC rankings for T20 batsmen. He still holds the second place with 823 points while Pakistan’s Babar Azam is at number one with 879 points.
Rahul is currently going through a great phase. The Indian cricket team has started to depend on him and his flexibility with his batting positions is something that makes him even more reliable.
Moreover, his wicket-keeping skills are also being appreciated and he has been keeping the wickets since Rishabh Pant got a concussion during India vs Australia. Indian skipper Virat Kohli had stated that they will be preferring Rahul behind the wickets and Rahul too has shown great efficiency and skill as a keeper. Rahul scored 224 runs in the five matches against New Zealand with an average of 56.
Indian skipper Virat Kohli, who stood at number-9 in the ICC charts has dropped down a position and now stands at number-10. England’s Eoin Morgan has replaced him to be at the ninth place after scoring 136 runs from three innings against Australia.
