The single most pressing issue facing Ward 2 is overcrowding of our middle schools and this is what I intend to do about it.

England’s Sarah Glenn reaches career-best T20I rankings, Meg Lanning moves up

Posted on

England spin-bowling allrounder Sarah Glenn, Player of the Series in England’s 5-0 whitewash of West Indies, has broken into the top ten of the ICC women’s T20I rankings for bowlers, while Australia captain Meg Lanning rose one spot to No. 5 on the batters’ rankings after finishing as the second-highest run-scorer in Australia’s 2-1 series win against New Zealand.

Twenty-one-year-old wristspinner Glenn, who made her international debut last year, picked up a chart-topping seven wickets against West Indies, gaining 12 slots to attain a career-best ninth position.

Australia opener Beth Mooney, England left-arm spinner Sophie Ecclestone, and New Zealand captain Sophie Devine, who were all in action in the two series, retained the top spots in the T20I rankings for the batters, bowlers and allrounders respectively. Meanwhile, even though she sat out the entire T20I series, No. 3-ranked Ellyse Perry’s position remained unchanged on the allrounders’ list.

Australia batting allrounder Ashleigh Gardner advanced seven places to a career best-equalling 18th position among batters thanks to a series-topping 90 runs, 19 more than Lanning, that also saw her claim the Player of the Series award. Legspinner Georgia Wareham, who took five wickets against New Zealand in three T20Is, moved five spots up to reach a career best-equalling 10th position while left-arm spinner Sophie Molineux (up two places to 13th) and seam bowler Delissa Kimmince (up eight places to 22nd) also made notable gains.

Amelia Kerr, the 19-year-old legspinning allrounder whose all-round contribution helped New Zealand snare a final-over win in the third and final T20I on Wednesday, retained the fourth position among bowlers, and is the only New Zealander in the top ten of the bowling charts. Meanwhile, Natalie Sciver remains the only England batter in the top
