Shai, Shimron move up ranks
LONDON – Shai Hope is now the highest ranked West Indian One-Day International batsman, while Shimron Hetmyer has also made a huge leap in the latest MRF Tyre ICC men’s batting rankings.
The duo were the two highest jumpers in the latest rankings, thanks to impressive performances in the just concluded five-match ODI series against India, which the Windies lost 3-1.
Hope scored 250 runs in the series at an average of 62.50, which allowed him to rise 22 places to 25th on the list, while Hetmyer, who was the West Indies’ leading run scorer in that series with 259 runs at an average of 51.80, has jumped 31 places to now be ranked 26th.
The two batsmen are enjoying their career-high rankings and are now separated by only nine points. But, more importantly, the Windies now have two representatives inside the top-30 among batsmen. (CMC)
