West Indies' Hayley Matthews has moved two places up to sixth in the ICC women's ODI rankings for allrounders, while India's ODI captain Mithali Raj has gone up one place to be second among batters.
Matthews starred with an all-round performance in the two ODIs against South Africa in Johannesburg, taking four wickets at an economy of 3.78 and scoring a 63-ball 51 in the rain-hit first game. This also helped her gain four spots among bowlers as she now occupies 11th place with a rating of 587, the highest in her career so far. India's Deepti Sharma also moved up one spot to be at the fourth position among allrounders.
Raj has 738 rating points among the batters, behind top-ranked Alyssa Healy (750) of Australia. Raj's team-mate, Smriti Mandhana, is unchanged at sixth with 710 rating points.
South Africa's stand-in captain Sune Luus made a two-spot jump to 18th, with team-mate Ayabonga Khaka and West Indies' Chinelle Henry also gaining big in the bowling list, led by Australia's Jess Jonassen. Veteran India pacer Jhulan Goswami has maintained her second place and Australia's Megan Schutt occupies the third spot.
England's Natalie Sciver leads the allrounders' chart, while Australia's Ellyse Perry and South Africa's Marizanne Kapp are placed at second and third positions, respectively.
