Yashasvi Jaiswal and Axar Patel have achieved their career-best ICC T20I rankings in batting and bowling, respectively, due to their outstanding performances in the ongoing three-match series against Afghanistan at home. Yashasvi has made a significant jump of seven places and now holds the sixth position with a remarkable rating of 739. Meanwhile, Axar Patel has also made significant progress and now finds himself at No. five in the T20I bowling rankings. His innings was adorned with five fours and six maximums, leaving no room for the Afghan bowlers to stage a comeback.
