India women’s cricket vice-captain Smriti Mandhana moved up to eighth
position in the batter’s chart in the latest ICC ODI rankings released on Tuesday.

Mandhana,
who hit an 83-ball unbeaten 94 in India’s 10-wicket win over Sri Lanka in the
second ODI on Monday, is the lone Indian in the top 10 of the batting chart
which is headed by Australian Alyssa Healey followed by England’s Natalie
Sciver.

All-rounder
Deepti Sharma and opener Shafali Verma have made significant improvements to
their positions after helping India take an unassailable 2-0 lead against Sri
Lanka in the three-match ICC Women’s Championship (IWC) series being played in
Pallekele.

Deepti,
who grabbed three for 25 and scored an unbeaten 22, has moved up two places to
the 29th position among batters and three slots to 16th among bowlers.

In
the rankings for all-rounders, she has gained 20 rating points to reach within
one point of Australia’s Ashleigh Gardner, who is sixth on the list.

Verma,
who is leading the run aggregate in the series with 106 runs including an
unbeaten 71 in the second match, is up 12 places to a career-best 36th among
batters. She is currently ranked fifth in the T20 list.

Other
Indians to move up the batters’ list are Pooja Vastrakar (up three places to
61st), Rajeshwari Gayakwad (up four places to 93rd) and Meghna Singh (up seven
places to 100th).

They
have all also moved up the bowlers’ list — Gayakwad from 12th to 11th, Meghna
from 58th to 47th and Vastrakar from 57th to 50th.

Pacer
Renuka Singh is also a major gainer, her seven wickets has lifted her 38 places
to 65th position.

For
Sri Lanka, Nilakshi de Silva has gained 13 ranks to reach 57th position among
batters after accumulating 75 runs in the two matches while Hasini Perera (up
16 places to 83rd) and Anushka Sanjeewani (up nine places to 89th) are the
others to progress in that list.

Among
bowlers, former captain Inoka Ranaweera has progressed five places to 21st
after her four wickets in two matches and Oshadi Ranasinghe has gone from 64th
to 59th position.

The
two wins have taken India to joint-second position with Pakistan in the IWC
points table. A
win in the last match against Sri Lanka will see them catch up with South
Africa at the top of the table with six points.

Sri
Lanka are on two points, earned in their previous series against Pakistan.
