How Virat Kohli marriage effect his international rankings
NEW DELHI - Virat Kohli, who missed India’s ODI and T20I series against Sri Lanka due to his much-celebrated marriage with Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma, has dropped to third spot in ICC Rankings for batsmen in T20 International cricket.
Kohli has also lost rating points as he has ‘slipped from 824 points to 776 points’ as per the latest ICC release.
(Aaron) Finch moved up one place as did Windies left-handed opener Evin Lewis, even as Virat Kohli slipped to third position after missing the series due to personal commitments.
“As players lose two per cent of their rating points for each T20I missed, Kohli, has slipped from 824 points to 776 points,” the ICC explained.
India’s limited-overs specialist Jasprit Bumrah too slipped to the third place in ICC Rankings for bowlers in T20 cricket, as he missed the final match in Mumbai on Sunday, after remaining wicketless in the first two matches at Cuttack and Indore, respectively.
