Badree passes Narine to become number one T20 bowler

DHAKA, Bangladesh, CMC- West Indies’ leg-spinner Samuel Badree has moved up a place to replace teammate Sunil Narine as the number-one ranked bowler in the latest Reliance ICC Player Ranking for T20I bowlers.

The latest update was released today, a day after the group stage of the ICC World Twenty20 Bangladesh 2014 came to an end.

Badree is currently the third highest wicket-taker in the tournament with 10 scalps from four matches, at an average of nine and an economy rate of 5.62.

His efforts have helped him gain 109 ratings points to finish on 855, 45 ratings points ahead of teammate Narine.

Before the start of the tournament, Badree was behind Narine by just one ratings point.
