Nat sciver-brunt claims top spot in ICC women ODI all-rounder rankings.

Nat Sciver-Brunt, the reigning ICC Women’s Cricketer of the Year, has ascended to the pinnacle of the One Day International All-Rounder rankings following an impressive performance against New Zealand in the third ODI held in Bristol.

Sciver-Brunt’s unbeaten 76 off 84 deliveries was pivotal, propelling the 31-year-old past South Africa’s Marizanne Kapp to reclaim the No.1 ranking. This achievement marks her return to the top spot, which she relinquished in September last year, complementing her current No.1 ODI batting ranking that she regained just last month.

In related shifts, England’s Charlie Dean now shares the seventh position in the ODI bowling rankings with West Indies’ Hayley Matthews, representing one of the few changes across the top ten lists. Notably, Lauren Bell’s impressive figures of 5/37 (9) have propelled her up 22 places to 24th in the bowling rankings, demonstrating her rapid ascent.

Sophie Ecclestone maintains her stronghold at the top of both the ODI and T20I bowling rankings, showcasing her dominance with recent performances, while her compatriot Kate Cross closely follows in second place.

Meanwhile, in T20I cricket, Sarah Glenn’s standout performance of 3/16 (4) in Southampton has elevated her to 17th in the T20I All-Rounder rankings, just behind teammate Charlie Dean.

South Africa’s Tazmin Brits has made significant strides in the T20I batting rankings, climbing four places to sixth after standout performances against India, where she was pivotal in her team’s victories with impressive scores of 81 (56) and 52 (39).

These rankings reflect the dynamic performances and achievements of women cricketers globally, highlighting their prowess and contributions to the sport.
