Australian opener, David Warner, has made a stunning return to form which has seen him move back into the top five in the One-Day International (ODI) batting rankings.
Warner, who had been out of action for some time due to injury, has been in red-hot form during the current ODI series against India. After his match-winning knock of 83 from 71 balls in the third game at the Manuka Oval, he moved up two places in the rankings to fourth position. This incredible feat is a far cry from his previous ranking of 27 just three months ago.
Australia’s ODI captain, Aaron Finch, still leads the rankings despite falling one place. He is followed by South African skipper, Quinton de Kock, who remains second in the list.
Meanwhile, deputy captain, Lachlan Conway, has enjoyed an impressive rise up the ICC T20I batting rankings, rocketing three places to third position. The wicketkeeper-batsman has continued his run-scoring prowess in the Indian series and is now the team’s highest-ranked batter.
Finch’s impressive century in the opening T20I game took him up to 13th place in the rankings. He is followed by Marcus Stoinis who, after a man-of-the-match performance in the third match, moved up one place to 20th.
Both Warner and Conway have been instrumental in Australia’s impressive performance throughout the ODI and T20I series and have been duly recognised in the latest ICC rankings. With the team inching closer to a series victory against India, these two batters are sure to grow in confidence and maintain their positions on the list.
Warner Back in Top 5 of ODI Bating Rankings; Conway Moves to No. 3 Among T20I Batter
Australia’s is in the top 5 in ODI bating rankings with Warner back and Conway moving to third place among the T20I batters, according to the latest International Cricket Council (ICC) rankings update.
Warner has reclaimed the fifth position with 692 rating points, helping Australia’s ODI team get back into the top five in the ICC team rankings. After a few notable performances across the world, he has been able to move up the ladder in the rankings.
Conway, who has been getting better with each passing game, has moved up to number three among the T20I batters. His 677 rating points have helped Australia’s T20I team rise up in the rankings.
What This Means For the Teams
A strong team performance from Warner and Conway has helped the Australian team move upwards in the rankings and they are currently in the top five in both the ODI and T20I rankings.
These strong performance by the two star players also highlights how important and influential they are to their respective teams. With Warner and Conway at the top of their game, the team is in a better position to achieve their goals.
The latest ICC rankings update reflects the team’s improvement over the last few months and the efforts of both Warner and Conway should be lauded. Hopefully, this trend continues in the upcoming series and the team continues to progress further up the rankings.
