Previously, Kathryn Bryce and Majid Haq held the best ranking for a Scotland player
Allrounder Kathryn Bryce has become the first Scotland player – male or female – to enter into the top ten of the batting or the bowling charts in the ICC rankings. She climbed up nine places to be No. 10 in the T20I rankings among batters after topping the run-scorers’ list from her side with 96 runs from four matches in the recent T20I series against Ireland.
Kathryn jumped 35 spots to be ranked No. 31 among the bowlers, while also rising ten spots to be the No. 3-ranked allrounder.
Previously, wicketkeeper-batter and her sister Sarah Bryce, and offspinner Majid Haq held the record for the best ranking by a Scotland women’s and men’s player respectively. While Sarah was No. 14 among batters in 2019, Haq was No.13 in 2013.
Kathryn’s scores against Ireland included an unbeaten 45 in the third T20I although the hosts came back from 0-1 down to eventually win the series 3-1. Scotland bowlers Katherine Fraser, Abtaha Maqsood, Katie McGill and Priyanaz Chatterji also rose in the rankings.
Among the Ireland players, batter Gaby Lewis – with 116 runs, the most, in the series – progressed seven places to be ranked No. 27. Her team-mate Shauna Kavanagh made a massive gain by leaping 60 spots to be No. 103 among batters, while Orla Prendergast and captain Laura Delany benefitted among the bowlers.
The T20I batting charts for women continues to be led by India’s Shafali Verma, with Sophie Ecclestone leading the bowlers’ rankings.
