Taylor rises up the rankings

Sarah Taylor's heroics during England's one-day internationals with West Indies have seen her become the second-ranked batter in the Women's ODI standings.

The latest rankings were released after England beat the Windies by 89 runs in the third and final ODI at Port of Spain to win the series 2-0, with Taylor scoring 100 to add to her 55 in the second game after the first match a no-result due to rain.

The 24-year-old wicketkeeper-batter was rewarded with 60 ratings points, which has helped her jump six places to second on the batting chart.

Taylor, who was adjudged player of the series, now trails number-one ranked Mithali Raj of India by 10 points.

In the bowling rankings the England duo of Jenny Gunn and Holly Colvin have closed in on the top three, with Gunn moving up two places to fifth and Colvin climbing two to eighth.

Colvin was the leading wicket-taker of the series, the left-arm spinner claiming six wickets for 24 runs to collect 37 ratings points, while seamer Gunn's two wickets in the rubber resulted in a gain of 14.

West Indies' Stafanie Taylor remains the top-ranker ODI bowler and all-rounder.
