Babar Azam Lost His Throne as Mohammad Rizwan becomes the No 1 Batter in Latest ICC T20 Rankings 2022
Mohmmad Rizwan the leading run scorer with 192 runs in the Asia Cup 2022 dethrone the No 1 T20I batsman Babar Azam and clinches the top spot in the latest ICC T20 rankings 2022.
Babar Azam who tops the list of T20 batters over 1000 days plus is dethroned by his own fellow Mohammad Rizwan. Pakistan’s skipper Babar Azam fails to perform in all the three matches played in the Asia Cup 2022; whereas Mohammad Rizwan stood tall and keeps the hopes of Pakistan alive and won the match for his team.
On the other hand, Suryakumar Yadav who was a real threat for Babar Azam to claim his throne ended up in the fourth position. Surya Kumar Yadav also failed to perform well in the on-going Asia Cup 2022 as India fails to win back to back two matches under the captaincy of Rohit Sharma.
Azam, Suryakumar, and Rizwan are vying for the No. 1 slot in the Twenty20 International (T20I) batting rankings. The Asia Cup 2022 is now taking place in the United Arab Emirates, where Asia’s best batters are engaged in a fierce battle.
Babar has maintained his top position in the Asia Cup despite not scoring many runs. However, a streak of low scores from Babar and half-centuries from Rizwan and Suryakumar during the last week may result in adjustments at the top of the standings when the ICC issues the Player Rankings on Wednesday (September 7).
