A stellar run of recent form has pushed South Africa batter Lizelle Lee to the top of the ODI batting rankings for the second time this year. With 762 ranking points, Lee is jointly atop the women's batting rankings along with India captain Mithali Raj.
Lee currently has two fifty-plus scores on South Africa's ongoing tour of the West Indies, including an unbeaten 91 in the first ODI. Before her move atop twice this year, she had first topped the women's ODI rankings in June 2018.
Meanwhile, Lee's team-mate and medium pacer Ayabonga Khaka gained a spot among the bowlers to move to No. 7 after grabbing four wickets in the first two ODIs against West Indies, which came at miserly economy rate of only two runs an over. Equally impressive was allrounder Dane van Niekerk, whose four wickets in the first two games came at an economy of 1.85, thus pushing her up a spot to No. 7 among ODI allrounders.
Also, in the T20I rankings, England legspinner Sarah Glenn moved over to the second spot among bowlers after four wickets in the recently-concluded home series against New Zealand, while the visitors' offspinner Leigh Kasperek climbed up seven places to sit at No. 15 after bagging six wickets on the tour, where she was the leading wicket-taker in her side's 1-2 defeat.
And runs in the ongoing ICC Women's T20 World Cup Africa Qualifiers saw Zimbabwe's Modester Mupachikwa moved up to No. 20 among batters after scoring 133 runs in four innings, with her captain Mary-Anne Musonda gaining 14 places to be rise up to No. 52.
