The right-hander who opens the batting and also bowls off-spin, moved from tenth spot, to fourth spot, following her outstanding performances, in the ICC Women’s Challenge in South Africa.
Taylor, the most successful player in West Indies Women’s history, has also moved to third in the ODI Women’s Player Rankings for all-rounders and into 16th position in the top 20 of bowlers, for the first time. These are all career-high rankings for the 19-year-old Jamaican.
Taylor was the leading all-rounder in the tournament, with 390 runs in five innings, at an average of 97.50 per innings. She was the only century maker, a career-best 147 against the Netherlands, as well as three half centuries.
Also making strides up the ICC ODI batting rankings is Deandra Dottin, the powerful middle-order batter. She scored two half-centuries – both at better than a run-a-ball – and has cracked the top 20 for the first time. The 19-year-old from Barbados has claimed her career-best ranking to date of 15th.
