The ICC updated their weekly ranking charts on Wednesday, and it is not something to cheer for the Indian fans.
The Men in Blue lost an ODI series after almost ten months as the Black Caps handed them a 1-0 defeat in the three-match series.
India named a new-look Indian side and rested their senior marquee players. As a result, Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma suffered a minor slump in their rankings.
Virat Kohli, India’s highest-ranked batter in ODIs, slipped one position to rank 8th, while Rohit moved to 9th.
Stand-in skipper Shikhar Dhawan also had a forgettable series, as he lost two places and is 15th in the world.
Sanju Samson is 83rd, ten places behind Rishabh Pant, who has been handed a long rope as per Sanju’s fan club.
Shubman Gill gained three ranks to sit on 34, while Shreyas Iyer jumped six spots to be ranked 27th.
Skipper Kane Williamson moved into the top 10 and ranks 10th on the list. Player of the series award winner Tom Latham galloped ten places and is now the 2nd highest-ranked New Zealand player at 18th position.
