Ravi Bishnoi’s star continues to rise as he displaces Rashid Khan at the top of the MRF Tyres ICC Men’s T20I Player Rankings following his Player of the Series-winning performance in their 4-1 series victory against Australia.
The 23-year-old leg-spinner took nine wickets in five matches, rising four slots to number one with 699 ratings points in the weekly update which considers the performances of the week up to 4 December.
Bishnoi’s consistency since making his T20I debut in February 2022 has seen him pick up 34 wickets in 21 matches, attributing to his meteoric rise.
