Root, Chahal ascend in new ICC rankings

England batsman Joe Root jumped two places to number five spot in the ICC T20I Batsmen Rankings after he top-scored in the three-T20I series against India. India’s leg-spinning sensation Yuzvendra Chahal, who architected England’s batting collapse with a 6-fer during the final match at Bangalore, leapfrogged 92 places to 86th position.

India came back from behind to snatch the T20I series and bag another silverware during England’s tour of their homeland.

Suresh Raina and Mahindra Singh Dhoni scored solid half-centuries at number three and four respectively to rocket India to a daunting 202, after Virat Kohli’s dismissal earlier in the innings.

England have had a forgettable tour of India as Kohli’s men won the five-Test series 4-0 and three-ODI series 2-1 prior to their T20I series win.
