Shakib al Hasan is the number one all-rounder in T20

He was already at the top of the list of ICC ODI all-rounders. Shakib Al Hasan topped the T20 cricket rankings after almost a year. Although not as much on his own merits, as on the failings of Afghan all-rounder Mohammad Nabi. Last week, Nabi topped the ranking with 252 rating.

However, the failure of the Asia Cup has brought him down this step. Nabi scored only 16 runs in 4 innings of 5 matches played in the Asia Cup. On the other hand, he took 3 wickets with the ball. Such a performance lowered his rating to 6.

He dropped to number two in the list with 246 points. The ICC, the highest governing body of world cricket, published the weekly update of the rankings on Wednesday.

On the other hand, despite not doing anything extraordinary in the Asia Cup, Shakib performed to maintain the rating. Along with 35 runs with the bat in 2 matches, he took 1 wicket with the ball. Shakib had a rating of 248 in the earlier published ranking. Shakib has risen to the top with a rating of 248 after 6 points of Nabi.

Sri Lankan all-rounder Wanindu Hasaranga, who is at the peak of form, is going to be the reason for Shakib-Nabi’s thoughts. In the recently concluded Asia Cup, he scored 9 wickets with the ball and 66 runs with the bat. He took 3 wickets with the ball as well as 36 runs with the bat in the final. It has an impact on the rankings.

Three steps ahead of the ranking of bowlers, he has placed at number six in the list. He advanced seven steps in the list of all-rounders. He is number four with 184 rating points. If the next T20 World Cup is good, then Hasaranga has a chance to leave Shakib-Navi behind. Who knows with the form Hasaranga is in, something like that might happen.

The century after 1020 days has affected Virat Kohli’s T20 ranking. 14 steps ahead in the list of T20 batsmen is at number 15.

Mohammad Rizwan retained the top spot despite being criticized for his innings of 55 runs off 49 balls in the Asia Cup final. However, due to bad form, Babar Azam lost the number two spot in the list to Aiden Markram. It is number three in the list.
