Rahul drops to 6th, Kohli at 8th in ICC T20 rankings

India's KL Rahul dropped a spot to sixth but Virat Kohli retained his eighth place in the latest ICC men's T20I rankings issued on Wednesday. Rahul, who scored three consecutive half-centuries in India's last three matches at the recently-concluded T20 World Cup, has 727 points.

The 29-year-old, who has been appointed India's new T20 vice captain, scored 69, 50 and 54 not out against Afghanistan, Scotland and Namibia but the knocks came too late for India as they exited the tournament in the Super 12 stage.

On the other hand, Kohli who has stepped down as India's T20 skipper, has 698 points and remains static on eighth. Rahul and Kohli are the only Indians to feature in the top 10 in T20 rankings.

Among others, Australians Mitchell Marsh and David Warner made notable progress after helping their side win its first men's T20 World Cup in Dubai on Sunday. All-rounder Marsh, who struck an impressive 77 not out off 50 balls to be named Player of the Match in the final against New Zealand, has progressed six spots to reach joint-13th position among batters.
