Mithali Raj and Jhulan Goswami augment in ODI rankings

By Piyush


Mithali Raj stepped up two places to 6th whilst epic pacer Jhulan Goswami also augmented a couple of spots to 5th in the latest ICC Women’s ODI rankings released on Tuesday, considering the preceding World Cup in New Zealand.

Raj, who banged a half-century in India’s final league game versus South Africa on Sunday, excelled Australia’s Rachael Haynes and Tammy Beaumont of England.

Nevertheless, the game finished in heartbreak for the Indian skipper as her squad was eradicated of the World Cup in a last-ball thriller.

Star opener Smriti Mandhana, who played a 71-run strike versus South Africa, remained still on 10th.

Considering bowlers, Goswami, who skipped the match against the South Africa, went past the South African duet of Marizanne Kapp and Ayabonga Khaka to be 5th.

Goswami is now 10th with 217 rating points, whilst fellow-mate Deepti Sharma clutched to her 7th position.
