Title-winners Bangladesh, who defeated India twice and Pakistan once in the tournament, made significant gains in ICC's T20 rankings, reports ESPNcricinfo.

Rumana Ahmed, the player of the match in the final for her all-round display, climbed six places to move to 12th in the allrounders' list. Offspinner Khadija Tul Kubra gained career-best 537 points to reach the 13th spot among bowlers.

India legspinner Poonam Yadav and Pakistan left-arm spinner Anam Amin have entered the top five of the women's T20 rankings. Yadav vaulted to the third place on the list, while Amin jumped a remarkable 13 places to fifth.

Yadav, now only behind Australia pacer Megan Schutt and New Zealand offspinner Leigh Kasperek, ended the recently concluded Asia Cup with seven wickets in six games.
