It was Wolvaardt's sixth century for South Africa in 50-over cricket and saw the right-hander gain one place and improve to fifth behind top-ranked batter Nat Sciver-Brunt on the updated rankings.

Brits scored century in the opening game of the three-match series and duly rose seven places to 38th on the same list for ODI batters, while Sri Lanka duo Kavisha Dilhari and Nilakshi de Silva also made some ground following decent innings in the second contest against South Africa.

Wicket-less from the opening two matches of the series, Kapp has gained one place to improve to third on the updated list for ODI bowlers due to her excellent economy rate. Teammate Ayabonga Khaka has also gained a spot to rise to equal seventh after three wickets in the second match of the series.

Sri Lanka trio Inoka Ranaweera , Oshadi Ranasinghe and Dilhari all made some ground on the list for ODI bowlers, while experienced skipper Chamari Athapaththu gained one spot to rise to 11th on the ODI rankings for all-rounders.

There was also some joy for a pair of sisters from Scotland, who have enjoyed good success with the bat during their side's ongoing tri-series against Papua New Guinea and USA, a release said.

Scotland skipper Kathryn Bryce stroked a brilliant 73 against PNG in Dubai and rose 16 places to 46th on the ODI rankings for batters as a result, while younger sister Sarah hit 84 against the USA at the same ground two days later and moved from outside the top 100 to 65th on the same list.
