Highlight Story

Riding on their huge win over England in the group stages of the ongoing ICC World Twenty20 in Sri Lanka, India jumped four places to claim the third position in the Reliance ICC T20 Championship table, which was released on Wednesday.

As a result of India's 90-run win, Mahendra Singh Dhoni's men moved to 116 rating points, while England slipped a position to second spot with 124. South Africa head into the Super Eight stage as the number-one team.

Meanwhile, Suresh Raina is the lone Indian to feature in the top 10 list for the T20I Player Rankings for batsmen.

Even though Raina dropped two places in the recently-released chart, the left-hander still occupied the fifth position with 730 points in his kitty.

Another Indian to rise in the chart is opener Gautam Gambhir who is 13th (up by three places).

New Zealand's wicket-keeper batsman Brendon McCullum retained his number-one batting spot with Chris Gayle in second place. Australia's Shane Watson jumped four places to a career-high third position.
