Shakib’s name not included in ICC’s latest T20 ranking

Bangladesh all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan’s name was not included in the latest T20 ranking released by International Cricket Council (ICC).

Bangladesh’s ace cricketer who was banned for one year by ICC last month is not in the top 100 for batsmen, bowlers or all-rounder ranking.

ICC, the global governing body of world cricket, has released its latest T20 ranking following the concluded Australia-Pakistan, England-New Zealand and India-Bangladesh Twenty20 International series.

Shakib’s name has been dropped from the rankings which were updated on Sunday.

Glenn Mazwell slipped to number two on the all-rounder ranking lists. Mohammad Nabi came in at number one.

On the other hand, Mahmudullah Riyad, the new captain of Bangladesh T20 team, comes at number four in the ranking.

After the tri-nation series against Afghanistan and Zimbabwe, Shakib was at the second position on the all-rounder rankings list. In addition, he was ninth in the bowling rankings and 32nd in the batting rankings.

However, Shakib is still on the lists of Test and One Day International (ODI) rankings as the lists of these two formats have not been updated yet after he was banned. So he is still the best all-rounder in the ODI and third in the Test rankings.

Pakistan’s Babar Azam tops the list of Test batsmen rankings. Australia skipper Aaron Finch and England Top-order batsman David Malan are at number two and three respectively.
