Sri Lanka captain Shashikala Siriwardene is making a move in the Reliance Mobile ICC Women’s ODI Player Rankings which would give her team a lot of heart ahead of the ICC Women’s World Cup 2009, which runs from 7 to 22 March.

Siriwardene, who inspired Sri Lanka to victory in the triangular series final over Pakistan in Dhaka on Tuesday, contributed 88 runs with the bat and bagged seven wickets in the series which has helped her to improve her ranking in all three categories.

The 24-year-old from Colombo, in the only change in the top 20 batting list, has moved up one place to 14th spot while she has jumped three places in the bowling chart to break into the top 20 for the first time in her career. The off-spinner now sits in 18th position.

In the all-rounders’ list, Siriwardena has swapped places with sixth-placed Rumeli Dhar and now has fifth-placed Jenny Gunn of England firmly within her sights.

The only other change in the top 20 bowlers is of Pakistan’s Sajida Shah who has failed to retain her 16th place and has slipped to 17th position in the latest rankings.

Claire Taylor of England leads the batting list while her team-mate Isa Guha spearheads the bowling chart. Australia’s Lisa Sthalekar leads the all-rounders’ field.
