Imad Wasim, Pakistan's spinning all-rounder, tops the new International Cricket Council (ICC) Twenty20 internationals rankings for bowlers, knocking South African spinner Imran Tahir off the top spot.

According to the rankings released by the ICC on June 25, Wasim is the only Pakistani to feature among the top 20 bowlers in the ICC T20I rankings.

Wasim is followed by India's Jasprit Bumrah and South African Imran Tahir in the rankings.

None of the Pakistani batsmen have been able to make it to the Top 20 ICC T20I rankings for batsmen topped by Indian captain Virat Kohli.

In the all-rounder rankings, Bangladesh's Shakib Al Hasan is number one while Mohammad Hafeez and Shoaib Malik are placed at numbers 11 and 15 respectively.

According to the newly-updated rankings, New Zealand are the top T20I side while England now sit alone at number two as Pakistan slip to third place.
