Babar Azam and Rizwan have secured their position in the first five spots following their exceptional performances during the ongoing T20 World Cup.
After two successive half-centuries in the ICC tournament, Babar Azam has reclaimed the number 1 slot for batters overtaking England’s Dawid Malan.
Mohammad Rizwan is 17 points ahead of Kohli at the fourth number with his tally of 731 rating points.
Rizwan has also surpassed his teammate Babar Azam (1,607 runs) and India’s Kohli (1,614 runs) when it comes to the most overall T20 runs.
Rizwan has become the first-ever cricketer to score 900-plus T20I runs in a calendar year as no other player has been able to score over 748 runs in one year.
