Indian batsman KL Rahul has retained his second spot with 816 rating points in the latest ICC men's T20I rankings. Indian skipper Virat Kohli has moved one spot to attain the sixth spot with a rating of 697.

Meanwhile, New Zealand batsmen Devon Conway and opener Martin Guptill made significant gains in the ranking list. Conway's unbeaten 99 in the Christchurch opener has helped him gain 46 spots and reach 17th position after just eight matches. Guptill, on the other hand, has gained three slots to reach the 11th position after his knock of 97 in Dunedin.

In what is a chance for both sides to prepare for this year’s ICC Men’s T20 World Cup in India, New Zealand took a 2-0 lead in the five-match series and had some other fine performances too that resulted in significant gains for their players.

For Australia, Marcus Stoinis’s knock of 78 in the second match sees him gain 77 places to reach 110th position. Matthew Wade (up from 132nd to 118th) among batsmen and Jhye Richardson (re-entered at 115th) among bowlers are the others to gain from the mid-series update as per the new system which sees a weekly update for all women's player rankings on Tuesday and those for men on Wednesday.
