In South Africa, the Women’s T20 World Cup 2023 is about to start. The ten competing teams are preparing for the major competition, which begins on February 10. However, a few Indian players have seen significant increases in the most recent ICC rankings before to the competition.
In the most recent ICC rankings, Sneh Rana of India shined. In the Women’s T20I Bowlers Rankings, Rana, a reserve for the Indian T20 World Cup team, rose four spots from 10th to a career-high of 6th. Along with Chamari Athapaththu of Sri Lanka, who will captain India during the competition, Harmanpreet Kaur is still in the top 10 on 612 ranking points. Deepti Sharma (up two spots to 23rd) and Harleen Deol (up 20 spots to 110th) in the batter’s list were other Indian players that made moves.

Deepti moved up in the batter’s rankings but dropped one spot in the bowlers’ standings. Last week, Deepti moved up to No. 2 and set her sights on knocking England’s Sophie Ecclestone off the top place. Deepti’s position in the bowlers’ rankings was taken by Nonkululeko Mlaba of South Africa, who moved up to second. With the same number of rating points as Chamari Athapaththu, Harmanpreet hopes to advance.
The Indian athletes put on a strong performance in the most recent matches, but they were unable to defeat South Africa in the Women’s Tri-series. Rana’s performance with the ball was essential as she claimed 2 wickets for 21 runs. As a result of the batters’ lack of initiative, the Indian women’s side was restricted to just 109/4 in 20 overs. With 46 runs, Harleen Deol led the team in scoring. South Africa, meanwhile, completed the target chase in 18 overs with the cost of 5 wickets.
