Kuldeep Yadav reaches second in ICC T20I rankings

Bengaluru, February 11: Chinaman bowler Kuldeep Yadav might have played just one match in the just-concluded T20I series against New Zealand which India lost 1-2. But that was enough for him to achieve a major feat. The haul of 2 for 26 in the third T20I helped him reach a career best second place in the ICC T20I Rankings, which was released on Monday (February 11).

India spinner Kuldeep Yadav has moved up one place to take a career-best second position in the ICC Men's T20I Player Rankings after grabbing two for 26 in the final match against New Zealand which his side lost by four runs to go 2-1 down in the series. The 24-year-old left-arm wrist-spinner accounted for well-set openers Tim Seifert and Colin Munro in the only match he played during the series and reaped immediate dividends. He is now only behind Afghanistan leg-spinner Rashid Khan in the table.

But Pakistan remained on top of the table with 135 points, holding a comfortable 11 points lead of second placed India (124 points).
