Proteas Women opener Lizelle Lee has moved to the top of the ICC Women’s ODI Batting Rankings, following her recent success in India.
Lee has been an inspiration with the bat in the South Africans’ unassailable 3-1 series lead over India in the subcontinent.
Lee replaces England’s Tammy Beaumont at the summit of the rankings, having secured scores of 4, 132 and 69 since the start of last week, adding to her unbeaten 83 from the previous week.

This is the second time in her career that Lee has topped the ODI batting charts and will be hoping to end the tour of India with another decent performance.
The fifth and final ODI between the Proteas Women and India Women take place on Wednesday morning.
