Highest run scorer and player of the series during the recent England series, Smriti Mandhana attains career’s highest fourth place in batting list of the latest ICC rankings.
Earlier, she was lagging ten spots behind in the charts of MRF Tyres ICC Women’s ODI Rankings for batters. Mandhana amassed 181 runs in the series, smashing a whopping 14 boundaries in the series.
The Indian World Cup sensation Smriti was an integral part of India’s recent 2-1 win over World Champions England.
