India all-rounder Deepti Sharma has reached her career-best position among bowlers and all-rounders in the MRF Tyres ICC Women’s T20I Player Rankings after some stunning performances over the past week in the Asia Cup being played in Sylhet, Bangladesh. Sharma scalped three wickets against Pakistan and two each against Bangladesh and Thailand to move up three slots and reach a career-best-equaling third position as well, which she had first reached in November 2019. She has surpassed South Africa fast bowler Shabnim Ismail and now only trails England spinners Sophie Ecclestone and Sarah Glenn as well.
