England's Beaumont Jumps Five Places To Top Women's ODI Rankings
England opener Tammy Beaumont has jumped five places to grab the top position among batters in the women's ODI rankings after an excellent display in the three-match series against New Zealand which her team won 2-1.
The 29-year-old right-hander has overtaken the likes of West Indies' Stafanie Taylor and New Zealand's Amy Satterthwaite to top the list and now leads Australia captain Meg Lanning by 16 points.
This is for the first time in her 12-year ODI career that Beaumont is No. 1, her previous best being the fourth position in July 2019. She has gained a whopping 49 points after topping the series with 231 runs, which comprised knocks of 71, 72 not out and 88 not out.
Her teammate Natalie Sciver has moved into the top 10 after scoring 96 runs in the series while captain Heather Knight has progressed three slots to reach 13th position after aggregating 135 runs. Amy Jones is another England batter to move up the rankings, from 27th to joint-25th position.
