Rizwan now holds the top spot in the ICC T20I rankings after covering a 14 rating points gap with his friend and Pakistan skipper Babar Azam. The lack of big scores in the tournament so far has cost Babar Azam his top position.
On the other hand, Rizwan scored 43 and 78* during the group stage against India and Hong Kong, respectively. Moreover, he backed that up with a knock of 71 off 51 deliveries in the rematch versus the arch-rivals in Dubai.
Mohammad Rizwan, who held 796 points before the Asia Cup started, now has 815 rating points next to his name after three innings. Babar has had 16 points and is now second-placed in the rankings table with 794 points
From the other side of the border, Indian skipper Rohit Sharma has made a four-slot gain in the ICC T20I rankings to move up to No.13. His predecessor Virat Kohli, too, has made a jump of four places on the ladder and is now standing at No.29.
While Rohit has collected 133 runs at the Asia Cup 2022, Kohli is India's top scorer for the event so far with 154 runs from four matches.
Suryakumar Yadav is the only Indian batter part of the top 10 batters, placed at No.4 in the table with 775 rating points with 133 runs from four innings at the regional tournament.
