ICC Women ODI rankings: Mithali Raj loses No 1 spot to Ellyse Perry, Smriti Mandhana jumps 14 places

Harmanpreet Kaur is another Indian batswoman in the top 10 ranking

India’s one-day women cricket captain Mithali Raj slipped two places to be at the third spot in the latest ICC Women’s ODI Player Rankings released on February 15. Australian all-rounder Ellyse Perry, who was awarded the ICC Women’s Cricketer of the Year 2017, snatched the number-one batting position from Raj.

Perry has moved to the top of the table for the first time in her career after Mithali Raj failed to score big in the recently concluded ODI series against South Africa which Team India won 2-1. Raj had scores of 45, 20 and 4, which were not enough to help her hold onto the top spot.

Smriti Mandhana, on the other hand, who had an impressive series (with scores 84, 135 and zero) jumped 14 spots to be at the 21st position in the ICC rankings.

Harmanpreet Kaur is another Indian batswoman in the top 10 ranking. She is placed at No. 7.
