England’s Dawid Malan has toppled Pakistan’s Babar Azam as the top Twenty20 international (T20I) batter in the International Cricket Council’s (ICC) batting rankings.

Pakistan’s captain Babar Azam has lost his No.1 spot after 22 months. He rose at the top of batting rankings in October 2018.

According to an update from the ICC’s Twitter account: “Malan topped the run-scoring charts in the #ENGvAUS series, has jumped four places on the @MRFWorldwide ICC Men’s T20I Rankings.”

However, Babar Azam slipped to the second position, with Australia’s Aaron Finch and Colin Munro in the remaining top five positions.

India’s Lokesh Rahul also fell two positions.

Malan was fifth in the rankings before the start of the series. He scored 129 runs and topped the run-scoring charts.

On the other hand, Afghanistan’s Rashid Khan and Mujeeb ur Rahman maintained their positions as the top bowlers, respectively.

Pakistan’s Imad Wasim and Shadab Khan lost a position each, coming to eighth and ninth, respectively.
