India have retained their number 1 spot in the International Cricket Council (ICC) T20I rankings despite a semifinal exit from the recently concluded T20 World Cup 2022.
The Rohit Sharma-led Team India faced a humiliating defeat against Jos Buttler’s England at the Adelaide Oval on Thursday (November 10) and crashed out of the tournament. However, the loss in the knockout game did not hamper India’s top position in the T20I team rankings. They will continue as the No.1 side albeit of England lifting the T20 WC trophy at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) on Sunday, November 13.
England pulled off the summit clash by defeating Pakistan and became the first team in limited-overs cricket history to hold both ODI and T20 World Cups together.
Star all-rounder Ben Stokes (52 not out off 49 balls), just like the 2019 ODI World Cup, anchored England’s chase despite occasional scratchiness and hit the winning runs on the last ball of the 19th over. With this five-wicket win over Pakistan, England regained their T20WC title, which they had previously won in 2010 on the Caribbean Island.
