de Kock now T20 world No.8

Quinton de Kock has warmed-up for the inaugural edition of The Hundred by moving to a career-best standing of No.8 in the T20 Player Index.

The South Africa wicketkeeper-batter was the highest run-scorer of the recent five-match West Indies series, scoring 255 at 51.

De Kock, who will represent Southern Brave in The Hundred, climbs into the top 10 behind an unchanged top seven.

Kieron Pollard continues to lead from Glenn Maxwell, Andre Russell and Rashid Khan.

In five outings against The Proteas, 34-year-old Pollard scored 66 runs and took one wicket in what was otherwise a quiet series.

Leading wicket-taker Dwayne Bravo (No.50) claimed 10 scalps and is back inside the top 50.

In England’s T20 Blast, leading run-scorer Harry Brook (463 runs, strike-rate 155.36) of Yorkshire continues to make gains and is now No.222. He will feature for Northern Superchargers in The Hundred.

Glenn Phillips (423, 162.06) has been signed up by Welsh Fire as a replacement for Pollard and arrives having achieved a lifetime best ranking of No.17 thanks to his form for Gloucestershire.

Meanwhile, after England’s bowlers dominated the Sri Lanka T20s, Sam Curran (five wickets, 5.22 economy rate) and Chris Jordan (three, 6.37) have climbed to career-best standings of No.14 and No.29 respectively.
