Dubai: India skipper Virat Kohli and pacer Jasprit Bumrah have retained their top positions in the batsmen and bowlers’ list of the latest ICC ODI rankings issued Sunday.
Kohli remained at No.1 spot after scoring 310 in the recently-concluded home series against Australia while his deputy Rohit Sharma hit 202 runs to maintain the No.2 spot in the batting chart.
Kedar Jadhav’s all-round effort has helped him move up 11 places to a career-best 24th after the five-match series, which India lost 2-3.
Ross Taylor was third in the batting rankings. South African opener Quinton de Kock gained four places to be in fourth after a very successful ODI series against Sri Lanka. In five games he scored 353 runs with a century and three half centuries.
In the bowlers’ list, Bumrah held on to the No.1 spot with 774 points. Among others, New Zealand fast bowler Trent Boult moved up a place to second after finishing with six wickets against Bangladesh, pushing Afghanistan’s Rashid Khan to No.3, while South Africa leg-spinner Imran Tahir has gained seven slots to reach fourth place after taking nine wickets against Sri Lanka.
The all-rounders’ table continued to be headed by Rashid Khan. However, no Indian figures in the top five.
In the ODI team rankings, England and India are at the top two positions. New Zealand have narrowly edged past South Africa to third spot while Australia have gone past Pakistan to fifth place.
