Babar Azam, the captain of Pakistan, faces losing his place as the best batter in T20 cricket as Suryakumar Yadav, of India, is closing in on the top spot. According to the most recent ICC T20 rankings, the Indian player moved up three spots to claim the position of second-best batter. At 816 points right now, he is just two points behind Babar.
During the Men in Blue’s T20I series against the West Indies, the Indian batsman has been in outstanding form for his team. His work with the bat has earned him a good placing on the list.
His quick rise has been fueled by a century against England in Nottingham last month and a stunning half-century against the West Indies on Tuesday, despite only making his international debut at the beginning of last year.
Given that India still has two games left to play in their five-match series against the West Indies, Yadav will certainly get the opportunity to surpass Babar at the top of the standings over the upcoming week.
