As a result of their performances against India, Bangladesh’s Fargana Hoque and Nahida Akter have risen to become the country’s highest-ranked batter and bowler respectively in women’s one-day internationals.
Sciver-Brunt, who is also the top-ranked ODI all-rounder in the globe, completes a double. Beth Mooney, who scored 130 runs in three innings, has fallen to No. 3 as a result of Sciver-Brunt’s promotion, while Chamari Athapaththu, who scored two centuries in the three-match home ODI series against New Zealand in late June/early July, has moved to second place.
Sciver-Brunt, who scored 31, 111*, and 129 in the three ODIs against Australia as the women’s Ashes series ended in a draw, has now reached a career-high 803 rating points. Meg Lanning (878 points) is the only extant female player with a superior career batting average.
Heather Knight climbed two places to 12th, Danni Wyatt three spots to 18th, and Ashleigh Gardner four spots to 21st in the batter rankings after the women’s Ashes.
Gardner moved up three positions on the bowlers’ rankings to fifth place and two positions among allrounders to third.
Sophie Ecclestone remained at the summit of the ODI bowling rankings.
After their Valiant Efforts Against India, Fargana and Nahida are Successful
The one-day international series between Bangladesh and India concluded in a thrilling tie-breaker. The crucial number, however, was 1-1, the score, which most observers did not anticipate.
Fargana Hoque was one of Bangladesh’s top performers, earning the Player-of-the-Series award with scores of 27, 47, and 107 – the first ODI century by a Bangladesh woman – in succession. As a consequence, she rose 11 places on the ODI batters’ table, reaching No. 19. She is the first woman from her nation to make the list’s top 20.
The left-arm spinner Nahida Akter moved from No. 24 to No. 19 in the bowlers’ rankings, which is also the highest for a Bangladeshi woman cricketer. Six wickets were taken by Nahida across the three ODIs.
