McCullum brothers top BLACKCAPS in T20I rankings

Brothers Brendon McCullum and Nathan McCullum are the leading BLACKCAPS  in the new Reliance ICC T20I rankings.

Brendon is the second ranked batsmen behind England’s Eoin Morgan while Nathan is forth in the bowling list behind fellow spinners Ajantha Mendis (Sri Lanka), Graeme Swann (England) and Saeed Ajmal (Pakistan).

Reigning ICC World Twenty20 champion England was unveiled as the number-one ranked side with the BLACKCAPS in third sport behind Sri Lanka.

Former BLACKCAP captain Daniel Vettori was set to take top spot in the bowling rankings but his recent retirement from Twenty20 cricket meant he was not included in the list.
