A significant movement was noticed in the MRF Tyres ICC Women’s T20I Player Rankings after the recently concluded Thailand Women’s tour of Zimbabwe. Nattaya Boochatham shot up in the rankings table and acquired the best ever position in her career across rankings for batters, bowlers, and all-rounders.
Boochatham displayed a stellar performance and played a dominant role in Thailand’s 2-1 win over Zimbabwe. Her stellar performance earned her the Player of the Match title in both the T20Is won by the Thai team. Boochatham was the highest wicket-taker in the series with two three-fors and a four-for. She also scored necessary runs in Thailand’s two wins and finished the series with 44 runs.
Boochtham’s current rank is 46th in the batters list, 16th in the bowlers list and 11th in the all-rounders list. Chantham is currently in the 19th position. Even Suleeporn Laomi jumped seven places and entered the Top 25 for bowlers by taking 4 wickets.
Scotland’s Katherine Fraser played an important part in the ICC T20 World Cup Qualifiers and helped her team win all four games that Scotland played. Picking six wickets, she jumped 15 places and settled at the 41st position in the T20I rankings for bowlers.
Netherland’s Frederique Overdjik created a record for best bowling figures in T20Is. She scalped seven wickets for three runs against France and shot up 82 spots to land on 160th place.
