West Indies captain Hayley Matthews has consolidated her position as the No. 1 allrounder in the ICC rankings with scores of 99 not out and a career-best 132 against Australia. She also moved to No. 7 on the batting rankings while her four wickets in two games took her to No. 5 in the rankings for bowlers.
Matthews, who is currently enjoying a run of seven consecutive Player-of-the-Match awards, has been in rich form. In her last two outings, she scored 231 runs off 138 balls that helped West Indies level the T20I series 1-1 with Australia. Matthews, who credits her 'leadership role', as a factor in her strong performances, now has 480 ranking points - a personal best.
Australia's Tahlia McGrath (T20I batting) and England's Sophie Ecclestone (T20I bowling) remain on top the rankings with Matthews joining them as the No. 1 allrounder.
