Dubai: Aug 21, 2013
 
Virat Kohli is the highest-ranked Indian batsman placed in joint sixth position in the latest Twenty20 rankings released by the International Cricket Council (ICC) on Wednesday. However, there is no presence of Indian bowlers in the top-10 bowlers’ list.

At eighth, Suresh Raina is the second Indian batsman in the top-10 with Yuvraj Singh being a distant next at 16th.

Off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin is the highest-ranked Indian bowler at the 16th spot in the bowlers’ chart.

Elsewhere, Pakistan will begin their two-match Twenty20 International series against Zimbabwe on August 23 with an aim to reduce the gap with the number-one ranked Sri Lanka.

The two-match series starts in Harare with the second match scheduled to be held on August 24.

Currently ranked second with 124 ratings points, Mohammad Hafeez’s side can gain one rating point if it wins both the matches, to finish with 125 ratings points and thereby reduce the gap with Sri Lanka (128) to three.

Zimbabwe too have an opportunity to move up, and will jump one place to 11th if they win both matches in the series.

Zimbabwe are currently ranked 12th with 48 ratings points, and can gain up to 16 ratings points to move to the 11th with 64 ratings points.

Meanwhile, Pakistan captain Mohammad Hafeez will start the series with an all-round presence in the rankings.

Hafeez is currently ranked second among all-rounders with a career-high 432 ratings points, and is also fourth in the bowlers list and 17th among the batsmen.

In the bowling table, Saeed Ajmal in second and Shahid Afridi in at 11th are the other Pakistan players inside the top 20.

For Zimbabwe, spinner Prosper Utseya is the only bowler inside the top 10 — at the ninth position. The bowlers’ list is still headed by West Indies’ Sunil Narine, with Sri Lanka’s Ajantha Mendis third.
