With 818 points, Babar Azam leads the Ranking Table. In fact, he has dominated the rankings for the last one year. But there is a new king of T20 and that is Suryakumar Yadav. He is just two points behind Babar. But let’s check first how is ranking points calculated.

ICC T20 Rankings: How ICC players’ rankings measured? 

  • A batter gets more points for runs scored in the second innings. But there is value in half-century and century.
  • If a player scores run at a difficult time for the team, he gets more rating points.
  • In a low-scoring match, a batter gets more rating points than a high-scoring match.
  • A batter gets more points if he top scores for the team and the team wins the match.
  • He will also get a bonus point if it is against a strong team.
  • Players get a bonus point for not-outs.

ICC T20 Rankings: How can Suryakumar Yadav dethrone Babar Azam?

  • Babar Azam is the current leader with 818 points while Suryakumar Yadav is close 2nd with 816 points.
  • Babar Azam’s next T20 assignment will be in the Asia Cup 2022.
  • Suryakumar Yadav can get past Babar Azam with just one impactful innings.
  • It doesn’t need to be a half-century. If SKY saves India from a crisis with 30-ball 40 or helps India win the 4th T20, he will dethrone Babar.
  • Similarly, if Suryakumar scores a half-century in Florida, he will surpass Babar Azam as he is not playing any matches until against India in Asia Cup.
  • However, if Suryakumar doesn’t manage to score any runs in the 4th T20, he will have another chance on Sunday in the 5th T20.

Since making his T20 debut against England with a Nataraj shot for 6 against Jofra Archer, SKY has become India’s integral part in white-ball cricket. Although he did not have much success in the T20 World Cup, he has ensured he remains one of the first names in the team. He slammed his maiden T20I century against England as India bossed over Jos Buttler & Co.

With Asia Cup 2022 & T20 World Cup around the corner, Suryakumar is considered India’s ace. It’s his flexibility to open, bat at No 3, 4, 5 and even 6 or 7 as a finisher helps India in deciding the combination.
