Internet Desk: Indian pacer Jasprit Bumrah claimed the top spot in the latest ICC T20 rankings while India could reach the second spot if the manage to defeat New Zealand in the three-match series scheduled to start from Wednesday.

Bumrah achieved his best rankings in the ODI career after he became third, while the young pacer reached top spot in the T20 format. Indian skipper Virat Kohli achieved the top spot in the ODI batsman rankings after edging past AB De Villiers.

In the team rankings, India will do Pakistan a huge favour if they defeat New Zealand in the upcoming series, as such a result will see their arch rivals top the standings.

New Zealand are the top-ranked side in the shortest format with 125 points but Pakistan have closed in to within one point after securing a 3-0 win in the series against Sri Lanka that culminated in Lahore on Sunday.

India are placed fifth at 116 points and can at best go to second position with a 3-0 win over New Zealand which will take them to 122 points.

Pakistan will reach the top rank with their tally of 124 points in such a scenario with New Zealand slipping to 114 points and fifth position.

Even a 2-1 series win for India will be enough for Pakistan to move to the top with New Zealand slipping to 121 points.
