Bangladesh captain Shakib Al Hasan has moved up one spot to become the No.1-ranked allrounder in T20Is - going past Afghanistan's Mohammad Nabi - following his superb outing in the recent tri-series against New Zealand and Pakistan.

While Bangladesh did not win a single match in the series, Shakib was the player in form for his team, scoring 154 in three matches at a strike-rate of 150.98. He made a 44-ball 70 in the match against New Zealand and followed up with a 42-ball 68 against Pakistan. He now has 266 rating points, 20 ahead of Nabi, reports espncricinfo.

Namibia's JJ Smit broke into the top five allrounders while Zimbabwe's Sikandar Raza entered the top ten following their impressive starts in the first round of the T20 World Cup. Smith moved four places up to fourth following his 1 for 16 - in addition to scoring 31* - and 2 for 24 against Sri Lanka and Netherlands respectively. Raza, who's been in superb form lately, scored a 48-ball 82 and picked up one wicket against Ireland.

Among the batters, New Zealand's Glenn Phillips jumped 13 spots to No. 10 after scoring 130 runs in four innings - including a 24-ball 60 - in the tri-series.

In the bowling charts, Afghanistan offspinner Mujeeb ur Rahman moved up two places to fifth position, while South Africa's Keshav Maharaj went one spot up to No. 8.

Pakistan opener Mohammad Rizwan, on 861 rating points, further extended his lead at the top of the batting rankings after another consistent showing during the New Zealand tri-series, while India's Suryakumar Yadav is behind him on 838 points.
