He achieved the feat after back-to-back half-centuries in T20 World Cup India star batter Suryakumar Yadav has ended Pakistan’s Mohammad Rizwan’s reign as the number one T20I batter following an impressive run in the ongoing T20I World Cup.

The 32-year-old smashed back-to-back half-centuries against the Netherlands and South Africa to achieve the feat.

The right-hander has been in fine touch so far in the tournament, where he scored 134 runs in three innings.

Meanwhile, Mohammad Rizwan, who slipped to number two spot with 842 points, has scored just 67 runs in the same number of innings.

On the other hand, South Africa left-hander Rilee Rossouw and New Zealand dasher Glenn Phillips also make eye-catching moves inside the top 10.

Rossouw hit a magnificent century against Bangladesh in Sydney and the 33-year-old moves up a whopping 17 places to eighth overall on the latest T20I batter rankings.

Phillips - who scored 104 against Sri Lanka also at the SCG - rises five places to seventh on the latest list for batters.
