Babar has been occupying the number one position in the ranking of batsmen in ODI and T20 formats for a long time. Along with this, he is also cherishing the dream of becoming the best in three formats at the same time as the first batsman in history by gaining the top spot in the Test rankings. However, if Suryakumar can maintain consistent form in T20 then Babar's dream may take a big blow.
Meanwhile, Shamsi, who held the top spot from April to October of last year, has moved up one spot to claim second place, although he is still 64 rating points behind Josh Hazlewood, who is currently rated first with 792 rating points. It was because of his eight wickets, including a game-winning five for 24 in the last match, that Australia could defeat England 2-1 and earn an additional 19 rating points in the series.
