STATS: T20 Tri-Series Batting Rankings

Surprisingly, our Batting Rankings are led not by Tammy Beaumont – the leading run-scorer in the T20 Tri-Series – but by Suzie Bates, whose superior Strike Rate gives her the edge. Bates plundered the South African bowling for 124* in their opening match, and a further 62 against them in their second game at Bristol; though she was notably less successful against England, scoring 23, 0 and 31.

Bates and Sophie Devine, at No. 3, between them scored a whopping two-thirds (66.8%) of New Zealand’s runs off the bat in the series, which really ought to be worrying them quite a lot – the next-ranked New Zealand batsman was Amy Satterthwaite, who came in 14th with just 58 runs.

For England obviously Tammy Beaumont was the stand-out star, but Nat Sciver also had a good series, despite playing a slightly more reserved game than we’ve maybe come to expect of her – she hit just two 6s in the series, and had the lowest boundary percentage of the Top 10 by quite a long way – 52%, compared with (for example) 77% for Lizelle Lee, the most in the Top 10.
