India slip a rung to 3rd in ICC T20 rankings

Dubai, Oct 8:
The Indian cricket team’s disastrous World Twenty20 campaign today pushed it to third place in the ICC T20 rankings while this year’s champion West Indies jumped five places to grab the second spot.
India, ousted at the Super Eight stage, are a point behind the Caribbeans at 120 in the rankings which continue to be led by this year’s World T20 runners-up Sri Lanka, the ICC said in a statement.
In the rankings for players, Suresh Raina and Virat Kohli held on to their respective fifth and 10th positions despite the team’s overall poor show.
West Indies’ success in the event was reflected in the player rankings as well with man of the match in the final, Marlon Samuels and impressive young spinner Sunil Narine, both recording rises of 20 places in the batting and bowling list respectively. (PTI)
