India's new opening batsman Yashasvi Jaiswal has done wonders. He has jumped seven places straight and now finds himself in the sixth spot with a career-best rating of 739. After missing the first match against Afghanistan, when he got a chance in the second match, he smashed 68 off just 34 balls at a strike rate of 200 and now he is seeing the benefit of this in the latest ICC T20I Rankings.

Jaiswal's power-packed performance with the bat helped India go 2-0 up in the series with the help of a six-wicket win. His innings was studded with five fours and six maximums and didn't give any room to the Afghan bowlers to make a comeback.

Meanwhile, Suryakumar Yadav continues to occupy the number one position in the latest ICC T20I Rankings, while Mohammad Rizwan of Pakistan is no longer at number two. At the same time, Ruturaj Gaikwad has to suffer the loss. Overall, 3 Indian batsmen have been successful in making their place in the top 10.

Suryakumar Yadav at number one in ICC T20I rankings

In the new ICC T20I rankings, India's Suryakumar Yadav is at number one position with a rating of 869. He is currently not playing the three-match T20 series being played between India and Afghanistan, yet there does not seem to be any threat to his number one position.

On the other hand, Phil Salt of England seems to be consolidating his position even further in second place. His rating has now reached 802. At third place is Mohammad Rizwan, whose rating is 775. Once Rizwan used to be number one, but now he has come straight to third place.

Pakistan's Babar Azam also got a jump of one place

If we talk about former Pakistan captain Babar Azam, he has reached fourth position with a jump of one place. He has scored back to back half-centuries in the first three matches of the five-match T20 series being played against New Zealand. Although the fifty of the third match would not have been added to his account yet, the ranking had come even before this match. His rating has now reached 763. Now he is becoming a challenge for himself as well as Mohammad Rizwan. With Babar Azam moving up one place, South Africa's Aiden Markram has lost one place. He has come at number five with a rating of 755.

Ruturaj Gaikwad sufferes a loss

Many batsmen have suffered losses due to Jaiswal coming forward. South Africa's Rilee Rossouw has dropped one place to seventh place with a rating of 689. England's Jos Buttler has also lost one place. He is at number eight with a rating of 680. India's Ruturaj Gaikwad also had to drop one place. His rating is now 661 and he has slipped from eight to ninth position. South Africa's Reeza Hendricks is at number ten with a rating of 660.
