Dubai: World champions England continued their domination of the
Reliance ICC Twenty20 International rankings while 2007 edition winners
India occupied the sixth place in the latest chart issued today.

England
retained their top spot with 129 points after winning their Twenty20
International series against Pakistan 2-1 in Abu Dhabi.

South
Africa are second with 119 points while Sri Lanka are third with 117. New
Zealand (114) and Australia (110) are fourth and fifth, ahead of India
(108).

Suresh Raina, at the sixth spot, is the highest-ranking
Indian in the list of batsmen, which is headed by Kevin Pietersen who
replaced England team-mate Eoin Morgan at the top.

Richard Levi
of South Africa, who clubbed the fastest Twenty20 International century by
belting five fours and 13 sixes (the most sixes in a T20 to date) in a
51-ball 117, has entered in 22nd position.

Among the bowlers, no
Indian is in the top 10 with off-spinner Harbhajan Singh the only one from
the country in the top 30.
