Goswami reclaims number-one bowling spot

Dubai:

India captain Jhulan Goswami has reclaimed the number-one spot in the ICC Women's ODI rankings for bowlers after a good series against England.

Fast bowler Goswami took 11 wickets in the series, which India won 3-2.

Seven months ago, Goswami had surrendered her number-one position to England's Holly Colvin.

Indian spinner Gouher Sultana, the most successful bowler in the series with 12 wickets, is the biggest mover in the latest rankings with a jump of 12 places as she is enjoying career-best 19th position.

England fast bowler Katherine Brunt, who took 10 wickets, has climbed one place to fourth position.

Rumeli Dhar has also achieved her career-best fifth ranking after a series haul of nine wickets while Jenny Gunn has improved by two places as she now occupies 18th position after claiming eight wickets in the series.

In the rankings for the batters, former India captain Mithali Raj has strengthened her position at the top after an outstanding series.

The 27-year-old batter scored 287 runs with four fifties and has opened up a 150-point gap with second-ranked Claire Taylor of England after the ICC Women's Cricketer of the Year 2009 missed the India trip.

Amita Sharma jumped three places to 15th spot in the batters list and returned to the top five in the all-rounders' list.
