Dubai, October 15
Injured India opener Smriti Mandhana has lost her No. 1 status after being toppled by New Zealand’s Amy Satterthwaite in the batting chart of the latest ICC ODI rankings.
Mandhana, who has 755 points, slipped to the No. 2 spot after she missed India’s recently-concluded ODI series against South Africa due to an injury. The 23-year-old suffered a fracture in her right toe after being struck by a ball during a net session before the start of the ODI series against South Africa which India won 3-0.Among the others batters, skipper Mithali Raj moved down to the seventh spot while Harmanpreet Kaur rose in the rankings to occupy the 17th place. In the bowlers’ rankings, Jhulan Goswami, Shikha Pandey and Poonam Yadav moved down to be placed sixth, eighth and ninth, respectively. Among the all-rounders, Deepti Sharma has moved down to the third place while Shikha Pandey broke into the top-10. — PTI
