Mithali dropped from first, Goswami rises to second: ICC ODI rankings


India captain Mithali Raj lost her number one spot in the ICC Women’s ODI rankings on Tuesday, moving up to third, while senior fast bowler Julan Goswami finished second on the bowlers’ list.

Raj, 38, scored just 87 runs at an average of 29 in the three-match series against Australia and now has 738 points.

Australia’s Liselle Lee (761) topped the list, followed by Alyssa Healy (750) with 112 runs in the three – match series against India.

Another Indian, Smriti Mandana, climbed one place to sixth with 710 points.

The 38-year-old Goswami’s star performance during the one-day series against Australia also took him to second place.
Goswami took four wickets in the series, India lost 1-2, including three wickets for 37 runs in the final, as India thrashed Australia by a stunning victory in 26 ODIs.

He averaged 28.75 points in three games.

Goswami finished third with 251 points to take 10 places in the all-rounders.

Australia’s Jess Jonason was the leading bowler with 760 runs against Goswami’s 727 runs.

Another Australian, Megan Scott, dropped one place to finish third with 717 points.

Others who made waves in the bowlers’ rankings were England duo Anya Shrubsol and Kate Cross, who both finished 9th and 10th respectively and entered the top ten.

Shrubsol took four wickets after taking three wickets in the final two ODIs against New Zealand, while Cross’s 3/44 spell helped lift the fifth wicket in the fifth ODI.

Bad Mooney attracted attention among the demolitionists. With nine rating points he sat eighth below Comrade McLanning and advanced eight places to enter the top ten.

Mooney’s brilliant performance against India included a stunning century and a half-century as he amassed 177 runs at a strike rate of 89.84.

In the all-rounder rankings, Ashley Gardner moved up four places to sixth, dropping Elise Perry’s awkward position to two places, pushing South Africa’s Marisen Cup to the top of the all-rounders’ rankings.

India’s Deepti Sharma has slipped one place to fifth.
