Women’s ICC-ODI Rankings: Mithali Raj Slips to 7th, Jhulan Goswami to 6th on Bowling Charts

Indian women cricketers are seeing a drop in the ICC women’s ODI rankings despite a good run at the ongoing World Cup in New Zealand. Captain Mithali Raj has slipped 3 spots to 7th on the batting table after a decent run so far at the Showpiece event.

Australia’s wicketkeeper Alysa Healy remains the No. 1 batsman at ODIs, while England’s Tammy Beaumont jumped to 2nd.

New Zealand’s Amy Satterthwaite is the biggest winner as she has risen from No. 8 to No. 3 in the barrier.

Satterthwaite scored 75 points in New Zealand’s 62-round win over India and then scored 44 points as her side lost to Australia in 141 rounds. Her performances have brought her to number 3 in the Schlager rankings, up to five places.

Wolvaardt was also in good touch in the tournament. She scored 75 and 77 in South Africa’s victories over Pakistan and England, respectively, and rose seven places to enter the top 10 on the batting chart at No. 5.

India’s Raj has managed just 45 runs in 3 games and is struggling to break into the middle tier, despite her team being in the top 4 of the Women’s World Cup 8-team table with 2 wins in 3 games.

ICC ODI RANKING FOR WOMEN

On the bowling charts, India’s pacer veteran Jhulan Goswami slipped 2 spots to 6th.

Although England failed to win a single game at the World Cup, Sophie Ecclestone was a shining light for her team and bowled with great discipline. Her performances have taken her to number one on the bowling charts, overtaking Australia’s Jess Jonassen. She registered figures of 3/20 in England’s loss to the West Indies and followed that up with a miserly spell of 1/23 against South Africa.

The other big winner on the bowling charts is Marizanne Kapp, who posted her best international career to date in South Africa’s three-wicket win over England. Her 5/45 helped South Africa limit England to 235/9 and she also made a practical contribution with the racquet during the chase, adding an important 32 runs. In the previous game against Pakistan, she had bowling numbers of 2/43. As a result, she jumped four spots on the bowling charts to number 4 while maintaining her number 3 spot in the all-around rankings.
