World Test Championship could be scrapped, ICC Chairman hints
30 Nov 2020
Sean Williams, the former Zimbabwe skipper, who had thoughts of retiring after the team’s Ireland and England tour, has now stormed into the top 10 of the all-rounders’ ranking for the T20Is, released recently by the International Cricket Council.
Williams, who scored 89 runs including his series saving unbeaten 60 in the second match against Scotland, moved to the ninth position, pushing his compatriot Ryan Burl to the 10th in a list that is topped by Afghanistan’s Mohammad Nabi.
While Williams scored 60 runs with the bat in the second T20I, he also took the vital wicket of Richie Berrington to bring his team back into the contest which it eventually won by 10 runs to level the series.
Fellow Zimbabwean Richard Ngarava also had enormous gains in his T20I rankings after a good series where he finished with four wickets at an economy rate of just 6.08. Moving up 43 places, the left-arm pacer reached the 36th spot in the ICC’s T20I rankings for the bowlers.
As far as Scotland is concerned, Berrington managed to keep his third position in the all-rounders’ list intact even as Michael Leask made considerable gains with 53 runs and three wickets to move 33 places up to No.53 in the latest update.
