Brendon McCullum is back on top of the ICC World Twenty20 batting rankings, having elevated two spots thanks to his knock of 91 against India on Wednesday.
McCullum struck 11 fours and three sixes on route to his total, which came off just 55 balls. It was the second equal highest Twenty20 score by a New Zealander – he himself holds the top honour with an unbeaten 116 against Australia.
Currently batting at number three, McCullum tops the ICC rankings on 793 points. Next best is Chris Gayle who is 49 points back on 744, while New Zealand is again represented in the top five with Martin Guptill on 737 points.
It’s another McCullum who features in the Twenty20 bowling chart, with older brother Nathan rising one spot to fifth. No doubt he’ll be looking to make a big contribution at the upcoming ICC World Twenty20 tournament, where he will have a great opportunity to climb even higher.
The win over India also saw the BLACKCAPS overall position rise as well, slotting into fifth on the table and just two points behind the West Indies.
