Kohli and Badree to enter knockout stage as top ranked batsman and bowler & Shane Watson retires as number-one ranked T20I all-rounder

Kohli and Badree to enter knockout stage as top ranked batsman and bowler

·         Root vaults 38 places to 11th, Afghanistan players also on the charge

·         Shane Watson retires as number-one ranked T20I all-rounder

·         India holds on to No.1 spot, New Zealand leapfrogs West Indies and South Africa into second position

Four of the top five sides on the MRF Tyres ICC T20I Rankings will feature in the semi-finals of the ICC World Twenty20 India 2016, which will be played in Delhi and Mumbai on Wednesday and Thursday, respectively.

Number-one ranked India will go head to head with third-ranked West Indies in Mumbai on Thursday, while in the first semi-final in Delhi on Wednesday, second-ranked New Zealand will square-off against fifth-ranked England.

India has retained its pre-tournament ranking as well as points, while the West Indies has gained two points to move to 120. This means both the former champions, who each won three of their four second round matches, are now separated by seven points.

In contrast, New Zealand, which has been the only unbeaten side in the competition to date, has earned six points to rise to 122 and has consequently moved up two places to second. Its semi-final opponent and 2010 champion, England, has also collected three points and is now seven points behind on 115 after winning three of its four matches.

This comparison reflects that the knockout stage of the ICC World Twenty20 India 2016 promises to be as exciting, entertaining and thrilling as displayed in the 32 matches to date.

Meanwhile, there has been a reshuffling of the pack in the MRF Tyres ICC T20I Player Rankings as leading performers have been rewarded for their good performances.

India's Virat Kohli, who averages 92 after scoring 184 runs in four matches at a strike-rate of over 132, has reclaimed the number-one batting position. Kohli had entered the tournament 24 points behind Aaron Finch, but has now opened up a 68-point advantage over the Australian.

England's Joe Root has rocketed 38 places to career-high 11th after scoring168 runs in four matches at a strike-rate of 150. The Yorkshireman has gained 105 points in the tournament to date as he now has Zimbabwe's eighth-ranked Hamilton Masakadza firmly within his sights.

Martin Guptill is New Zealand's highest-ranked batsman after the opener has moved up two places to third following his contribution of 125 runs in three matches at a strike-rate of over 162.

West Indies' flamboyant Chris Gayle has gained one place and is now ranked sixth after scoring 104 runs in two innings at a stunning strike-rate of 208.

In the bowlers' table, West Indies' Samuel Badree has returned in number-one position. Badree has taken six wickets in four matches to date, while India's Ravichandaran Ashwin has dropped from number-one spot to third after managing just four wickets in as many matches.

New Zealand's Adam Milne and India's trio of Ravindra Jadeja, Jasprit Bumrah and Ashish Nehra are the bowlers who have made impressive gains and are expected to feature in the final leg of what has been a highly-competitive tournament to date.

Milne's three wickets in three matches have helped him rise six places to sixth, Jadeja's four wickets in four matches have moved him up three places to seventh, Bumrah's three wickets in four matches have lifted him 13 places to 13th and Nehra has leaped 14 places to 16th following his four wickets in as many matches.

Shane Watson of Australia has signed off on his T20I career as the number-one ranked all-rounder. In the batting charts, Watson finished in 10th spot (up by three places) after scoring 96 runs, while he has ended up in 29th spot (up by five places) in the bowlers' list after taking five wickets in four matches.

Afghanistan, which consistently produced solid performances and eventually caused the biggest upset of the tournament to date by defeating the West Indies, has seen a number of players head in an upward direction.

In the batting table, opener Mohammad Shahzad is now eighth (up by three places), while Asghar Stanikzai is 47th (up by six places). In the bowlers' table, Mohammad Nabi is ninth (up by 11 places), Rashid Khan is 11th (up by 68 places) and Hamza Hotak is 18th (up by 22 places).

Batsmen to improve their rankings but will no more feature in the tournament include South Africa's Hashim Amla (12th, up by nine places), Sabbir Rahman of Bangladesh (16th, up by four places), Quinton de Kock of South Africa (17th, up by seven places) and Australia's Glenn Maxwell (20th, up by 11 places).

Bowlers to head in the right direction are South Africa's Kyle Abbott (fifth, up by six places), James Faulkner of Australia (eighth, up by 28 places), Mustafizur Rahman of Bangladesh (19th, up by eight places), Australia's Nathan Coulter-Nile (20th, up by 27 places) and Kagiso Rabada of South Africa (22nd, up by seven places).

While the team rankings will be updated after each match, the player rankings will now be updated after the final of the ICC World Twenty20 India 2016.

#CPL16 CPL announces record applications for CPL Player Draft 2016


CPL announces record applications for CPL Player Draft 2016
Tom Moody hails "most competitive roster" in CPL history

Badree, Bravo brothers, Gayle, Narine, Pollard, Sammy and Simmons in as West Indies talent pool increases by 22%
Afridi, Dilshan, Malinga, Misbah, Shakib and Wahab lead strong Asian presence

Amla, Miller, Philander, Morkel and Tahir named in 34-strong South African contingent

Overseas players increase by 18% from 14 countries ahead of 11 February Player Draft

A record number of local and international stars have been officially registered for the HERO Caribbean Premier League (CPL) Player Draft which takes place on 11 February in Barbados.

Commenting on this year's record list of applicants both in the West Indies and across the world, Director of International Cricket for CPL, Tom Moody said: "Some of the leading names in world cricket have signalled their intentions to join the biggest party in sport at the CPL, so this year's competition is sure to be our most exciting to date.

"Outside of our 'marquee' players, there are international players of the highest standard including a host of World champions, and a myriad of players who continue to entertain and enrich the global game.

"It is without doubt our most competitive roster and it is exciting to see such a high standard across the established and emerging nations around the world. That players from 14 nations have entered the Draft illustrates the global reach of the CPL, and with a sizable increase in the West Indies contingent which is up by over one-fifth this year, it is clear that the T20 game is growing from strength to strength."

Amongst the list of West Indies talent who are in the frame for the six franchises this year are stars of the calibre of Chris Gayle (a winner of the inaugural competition with Jamaica Tallawahs back in 2013), West Indies World T20 captain Darren Sammy and Lendl Simmons.

Darren and Dwayne Bravo are set to join the number one ranked T20 international bowler Samuel Badree, as well as Sunil Narine and Kieron Pollard, who was such a driving force in Barbados reaching last year's final before being edged by eventual winners Trinidad & Tobago.

To supplement the outstanding pool of local talent on display, some of the biggest names in international cricket will bid to join the five marquee players - Faf du Plessis, Martin Guptill, Brendon McCullum, Kumar Sangakkara and Shane Watson - who were confirmed last week.

Amongst the assembled overseas stars is a 34-strong South African contingent headed by prolific top order batsman Hashim Amla, leg-spinner Imran Tahir and fast bowler Morne Morkel.

There is sure to be a strong Pakistan presence in the tournament, which takes place from the end of June until the beginning of August, with one of the stars of last year's CPL for Barbados Shoaib Malik included amongst a plethora of big names including Shahid Afridi, Misbah-Ul-Haq (who has played in both St Lucia and Barbados to date) and left-arm fast bowler Wahab Riaz.

Across the continents, there will be seven Bangladesh (including Shakib Al Hasan who is one of the finest all-rounders in world cricket), while there will also be seven Afghanistan players which is indicative of their recent rise in the shortest format of the game. Sri Lanka, currently ranked third in the T20 team rankings, will have 20 representatives in the frame including legends Tillakaratne Dilshan and Lasith Malinga will be looking to join their compatriot Sangakkara.

There will be 23 players from Australia in the Draft, including a blend of experience in Brad Haddin, Brad Hodge and Michael Hussey allied to a crop of up-and-coming talent, and a further 11 New Zealanders, including the likes of Nathan McCullum.

Of the current ICC World T20 player rankings, nine of the top 20 batsmen could be set to feature in this summer's CPL: du Plessis (fourth place), Guptill (fifth), Gayle (seventh), Zimbabwe's Hamilton Masakadza (eighth), Afghanistan's Mohammad Shahzad (ninth), Dilshan (13th), Brendon McCullum (15th), Watson (17th) and Umar Akmal (18th).

Four of the top five bowlers in the T20 rankings are also in the frame with the list headed by West Indian leg-spinner Badree, Afridi (third), Sachithra Senanayake (fourth) and Graeme Cremer (fifth), with Malinga (seventh) and Tahir (ninth) also amongst the leading lights in contention.

With coveted spots up for grabs from the ICC Americas region, there is sure to be a lot of interest across North America as players from Canada (seven) and the USA (10), who recently competed in the Nagico Super 50 competition, all aim to book one of the six coveted places.

England (two), Ireland (two), Scotland (two) and Netherlands (one) will be the European representatives hoping to secure a place in the CPL.

Sixteen of the 157 West Indies players to register have already been retained ahead of the draft, leaving 141 eligible for selection on draft day. This is 25 more than the 116 who vied for spots at last year's Draft and represents a 22% increase. Coupled with an 18% increase in international player registration, this is further illustration of the CPL's growing stature as one of the foremost tournaments in T20 cricket.

According to a report in 'ESPN Cricinfo', apart from Yuvraj, England swashbuckler Kevin Pietersen and in-form Australian all-rounder Mitchell Marsh are among the 12 players who have listed the highest base price in a list of 714.

Others in the Rs 2 crore bracket are Shane Watson, Ishant Sharma, Ashish Nehra, Dinesh Karthik, Stuart Binny, Sanju Samson, Dhawal Kulkarni, Kane Richardson and 40-year-old Australian all-rounder Mike Hussey.

South African pacer Dale Steyn, India's Mohit Sharma and Englishman Jos Butler are part of the Rs 1.5 crore group, while Irfan Pathan and Tim Southee are in the Rs 1 crore cluster.
