    India move up to 2nd T20 ranking table

    India might have failed to qualify for the semi-finals of the ongoing ICC World Twenty20, but four wins out of five matches have pushed the Mahendra Singh Dhoni-led side up by one place to the second spot in the latest T20 International team rankings, released today.

    India now trail Sri Lanka (129) by nine points and are followed by Pakistan (118) and England (118).

    South Africa has lost its number-one position in the championship table after failing to qualify for the semi-finals.

    Virat Kohli's good run catapulted him to the 10th position with a jump of nine places. The young Delhi batsman scored 185 in five matches and is fourth highest run-getter among all batsmen so far.
    Among bowlers, Harbhajan Singh dropped out of top-20 as he slipped to 23rd with a loss of six places. R Ashwin zoomed to 25th spot after gaining 17 places.

    Australia's Shane Watson continued to make an upward movement with his all-round exploits as he moved up one place to second in the T20 rankings for batsmen after becoming the highest run-getter in the tournament to date with 242 runs.

    He is also the leading wicket-taker in the event with 11 wickets and this effort has helped him move up a place to sixth in the rankings for bowlers.

    A combined effort with the bat and ball ensures that he remains the number-one ranked all-rounder in the world in this format. MORE
