Adam Zampa headlines T20I bowler rankings as he breaks into top-three
Australia, after an enthralling finish to the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2021 as champions, spearheaded the MRF Tyres ICC Player Rankings with Adam Zampa, Josh Hazlewood, and Mitchell Marsh making significant gains.
In the player rankings for bowlers, Zampa climbed up two spots to break into the top-three going past fellow wrist-spinners Adil Rashid and Rashid Khan with figures of 1/26 in the Final against New Zealand and 1/22 in the Semi-Final versus Pakistan — finishing the tournament as the second-highest wicket-taker with 13 scalps.
Hazlewood proved a vital cog in Australia’s successful T20 World Cup campaign as he brought forth an immaculate display of bowling with the new ball while also taking up the challenge to bowl at the death. On the night of the final, Hazlewood snared three wickets while conceding 16 runs — ending as Australia’s leading fast bowler with 11 wickets — taking him to fifth on the charts. (ICC)
