Finishing the two-match T20I series against Zimbabwe as the highest wicket-taker — five wickets at a bowling average of 8.40 and a strike-rate of 9.60 — has propelled Afghanistan's Rashid Khan to the top of the latest ICC T20I bowler rankings.
Only a week ago, Rashid became the youngest player to top any category of ICC rankings by topping the ODI bowlers' rankings at just 19 years and 153 days.
This is the latest feather in the cap of this leg-break bowler, who is no doubt in the nascent stage of his international career still.
India's Bhuvneshwar Kumar jumped 20 places to now be 12th, after taking 7 for 67 in the three-T20I series against South Africa, while Ish Sodhi (+1, NZ), Samuel Badree (+2, WI) and Imad Wasim (+3, PAK) were among the bowlers who enjoyed a rankings boost.
