Indian skipper Virat Kohli and his deputy Rohit Sharma have maintained their top two spots in the latest ICC ODI rankings for batters. Virat Kohli scored two half-centuries in the three-match ODI series against Australia.
Rohit, on the other hand, missed the limited-overs series against Australia, owing to a hamstring injury, but remains at number two, five points ahead of Pakistan skipper Babar Azam.
Meanwhile, Indian pacer Jasprit Bumrah has stuck to his third spot in the bowlers’ list. Bangladesh’s Mehdy Hasan and Mustafizur jumped 9 and 11 places to occupy the 4th and 8th spot, respectively.
Surprisingly, Ravindra Jadeja has moved down by a spot and is currently at number eight in the list of all-rounders. Afghan all-rounder Rashid Khan, on the other hand, swapped places with New Zealand’s Colin de Grandhomme, after gaining one spot.
Ireland all-rounder Paul Stirling has gained eight slots to reach 20th place. He scored 285 runs against Afghanistan which included centuries in the second and third matches.
India’s next ODI series is against England, starting March 23 in Pune. Both teams will play 3 ODIs, after the conclusion of 4 Tests and 5 T20Is.
