Wanindu tops ICC T20 bowling rankings 

Sri Lanka’s Wanindu Hasaranga has become the world’s top T20 bowler by ICC rankings.

He has topped the bowling charts for the first time in his career after two successive three-wicket hauls against South Africa and England, overtaking World Cup Group 1 rival Tabraiz Shamsi of South Africa.

With eight wickets in the Super 12s stage (the most by anyone), the leg-spinner Wanindu Hasaranga has also taken this year’s tally to 34 scalps, a new world record for most wickets in a calendar year in Men’s T20Is.
