    Deepak Chahar up 88 places in T20 rankings

    Synopsis

    The top five and eight of the top nine are spinners, with Mitchell Santner reaching second place - his best position since he topped the table in January 2018, behind Afghanistan's Rashid Khan.

    In the third and final match against Bangladesh, Chahar also became the first Indian to take a hat-trick in the shortest format, helping India secure their first T20 series win at home this season.
    India fast bowler Deepak Chahar, who returned a world record haul of six for seven against Bangladesh on Sunday, has moved up 88 slots to 42nd in the latest ICC T20 rankings for bowlers. The list, however, continued to be led by slow bowlers.

    The top five and eight of the top nine are spinners, with Mitchell Santner reaching second place - his best position since he topped the table in January 2018, behind Afghanistan's Rashid Khan.

    In the third and final match against Bangladesh, Chahar also became the first Indian to take a hat-trick in the shortest format, helping India secure their first T20 series win at home this season.

    Rohit Sharma remained India's topranked batsman at seventh position while KL Rahul moved up a place to eight after his half-century on Sunday. England's Dawid Malan has made a re-entry to the batting chart, grabbing third position in the list led by Pakistan's Babar Azam, while Aaron Finch of Australia is second, gaining two positions.

    Malan, whose tally of 458 runs is more than anyone else in the first nine matches, though remained 94 rating points adrift of Babar in the latest update which includes the ICC T20 World Cup Qualifier 2019, the series between Australia and Pakistan, between New Zealand and England, as well as the one between India and Bangladesh.

    England captain Eoin Morgan and New Zealand opener Martin Guptill have also made notable movements to take joint ninth place.
