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.
