Sri Lanka’s Wanindu Hasaranga reclaimed the top spot in the T20 all-rounders rankings from Australia’s Marcus Stoinis, who fell to fourth. Afghanistan’s Mohammad Nabi moved up two ranks to second, and India’s Hardik Pandya climbed four ranks to third, placing him just above Stoinis. Pakistan’s Imad Wasim is in 11th position.
