Lady Chevrons stars make gains in ICC Women’s Player Rankings – New Zimbabwe.com

Spread This News

By Sports Reporter


ZIMBABWE women’s cricket team opening batter Sharne Mayers has been rewarded for her consistent run of good form with the bat after making significant strides in the International Cricket Council (ICC) Women’s Twenty20 International Player Rankings.

The 30-year-old former Lady Chevrons has been in brilliant form since the start of the year and has continued her purple patch in the ongoing ICC Women’s T20 World Cup Qualifier taking place in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.

Mayers has been leading from the front with scores of 33 and 19 runs in the wins against Papua New Guinea and Thailand respectively which has seen her moving 11 places to 39th among batters.

Wicketkeeper batter Modester Mupachikwa is the highest player on the ICC Women’s T20 batting rankings despite dropping one position to 24th while Chipo Mugeri-Tiripano remains in position 38.

Off-spinner Precious Marange has risen 13 places to 34th among bowlers after he picked up two wickets for 10 runs against Papua New Guinea on Sunday.

The upward movement on the ICC rankings by Zimbabwean players should be a huge confidence boost for the Lady Chevrons, who are aiming to finish amongst the top two teams from the eight-team qualifier tournament to qualify for the 2023 ICC Women’s T20 World Cup in South Africa.

Zimbabwe are in Group B alongside Papua New Guinea, Thailand and the UAE while Pool A features Bangladesh, Ireland, USA and Scotland.

The top two teams from each group will make the semi-finals while the finalists will book their places in the T20 World Cup.

Zimbabwe have so far picked up two wins in the qualifier. The Gary Brent-coached side kicked off their campaign with an eight-wicket win over Papua New Guinea on Sunday before registering another comprehensive six-wicket victory against higher-ranked Thailand the next day.

The Lady Chevrons have qualified for the semi-finals of the eight-team tournament as they top Group B with four points, followed by Thailand who are on two points.

Zimbabwe face UAE under floodlights at the Tolerance Oval on Wednesday in their last group fixture.

Bangladesh women are also through to the semi-finals as they top Group A with four points having won their opening two matches, followed by Scotland on two points.

Sanju Samson Has to Perform Big In First-Class Cricket: S Sreesanth Expects Consistency From His Former Tea – News18

Despite being one of the rising stars of the game, Sanju Samson continues to be ignored by the national selectors. That’s why he has played a handful of T20Is, despite making his India debut in 2015. The 27-year-old has seen his stocks take a tumble when he was dropped during the three-match T20I series in England as the likes of Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma made their way. Furthermore, he was played just two T20Is on West Indies trip where he scored 30 and 5. The selectors then went ahead and gave him the snub, which was expected, from the 2022 T20 World Cup.

Now, Samson’s exposure is limited to playing ODI cricket. From July onwards he has played the three ODIs in West Indies and well as the same number of matches in Zimbabwe, donning the role of the Wicket-Keeper. With reports of his promotion as ODI vice-captain for South Africa series, his ardent fans must be fearing: Is his T20 career over? Maybe, or maybe not as India is likely to restructure its t20 squad irrespective of their success or failure at the T20 World Cup. Meanwhile, one of his mentors S Sreesanth spoke on this issue exclusively to Hindustan Times and said that Samson will have to up his game.

“He has to be consistent. See, everyone is talking about the IPL. I’m from Kerala, I’m somebody who has always supported him. I’ve seen him play from U14. He has played under me. In fact, I was the one who gave him the cap on his Ranji Trophy debut. But the way I see him… it’s a request to him – he has to start performing in first-class matches,” Sreesanth on the sidelines of the Delhi leg of 2022 Legends League Cricket.

“Sanju has to come out and perform in first-class matches. Not just score a hundred, score 200s. Come and make the Kerala team win the Ranji Trophy!”

Shubman Gill Scores Maiden County Hundred For Glamorgan – NDTV Sports

Shubman Gill Scores Maiden County Hundred For Glamorgan

Shubman Gill playing for Glamorgan in County Championship Division 2.

Young Indian batter Shubman Gill slammed his maiden hundred for Glamorgan against Sussex in their County Championship Division 2 match in Hove on Tuesday. Batting on 91 overnight, Gill notched his eighth first-class century in 123 balls, displaying his wide array of elegant shots all around the County Ground in Hove. Overall Gill smashed 16 boundaries and two sixes in his knock of 119 off 139 balls before being dismissed by off-spinner Jack Carson when he holed out to Sean Hunt.

Gill batted for three hours and 23 minutes as he got out with Glamorgan’s first innings score, reading 277/5 in the opening session of day two.

Gill first put on a 57-run stand with Glamorgan skipper David Lloyd (56). Under floodlights on day one, Gill and Billy Root had little trouble in adding 87 runs before the latter got out in the eighth over of the day.

The 23-year-old Indian top-order batter has been in the form of his life having scored a maiden International century — 130 — in an ODI against Zimbabwe last month.

Promoted

Gill missed out on a century by eight runs against Worcestershire earlier this month.
