The reign of Beth Mooney as the No.1 ranked T20I batter in the world is over, with teammate and Australia captain "Meg Lanning" claiming top billing on the latest MRF Tyres ICC Women's T20I Player Rankings.
The ICC released the latest set of Women's rankings on Tuesday(26th July 2022) and Lanning was the eye-catching mover as she jumped one place to usurp Mooney at the top of the T20I list on the back of her stellar tri-series against Pakistan and Ireland.
Although some poor weather in Ireland put a dampener on much of the series, Lanning showed her class to finish as the leading run scorer with 113 runs from two innings for her country.
Her best effort came against the Irish in Bready when she scored a quickfire 74 from just 49 deliveries to help Australia post a hefty total of 182/4 in yet another easy victory.
In that same match Mooney managed just nine and that proved pivotal in the rankings re-shuffle, with Lanning jumping a total of 10 rating points to catapult herself in front of her left-handed teammate.
