ICC Latest ODI Ranking Update : Indian captain Rohit Sharma, who is in great form in the ongoing World Cup, has reached the sixth position in the list of batsmen with an improvement of five places in the latest rankings released by the International Cricket Council (ICC) on Wednesday. After playing an aggressive inning of 131 runs against Afghanistan, Rohit played a brilliant inning of 86 runs in 63 balls against arch-rival Pakistan.
Rohit Sharma made a big blast during World Cup 2023
South African wicketkeeper batsman Quinton de Kock moved from sixth to third position after two consecutive century innings (100 against Sri Lanka and 109 against Australia). He pushed teammate Rassie van der Dussen to fourth place. De Kock failed to climb further in this list, because he could play only an inning of 20 runs against Netherlands.
ICC suddenly made a big announcement
Those who have made big improvements in this list include Afghanistan’s opener Rahmanullah Gurbaz (up 19 places to 18th) and Netherlands captain Scott Edwards (up 16 places to 27th). Both these batsmen played an important role in helping their team win against England and South Africa respectively.
Pakistan captain Babar Azam is on top
Shubman Gill is second in the rankings while Pakistan captain Babar Azam is at the top. Gill could not play the first two matches of the World Cup due to illness, while he scored only 12 runs against Pakistan. This gave Babar an opportunity to further strengthen his position at the top.
Bolt close to reaching the top in the rankings
New Zealand fast bowler Trent Boult is close to reaching the top of the rankings. After taking two wickets for 45 runs against Bangladesh, he is just one point behind top-ranked Josh Hazlewood (660 rating points). Afghanistan’s charismatic spinner Rashid Khan is at fourth position among bowlers with an improvement of two places. Keshav Maharaj improved seven places and is joint fifth with Afghanistan’s Mujeeb Ur Rehman.
Shakib Al Hasan tops ODI all-rounder ranking
Among fast bowlers, India’s Jasprit Bumrah (up seven places) and South Africa’s Kagiso Rabada (up one place) have moved up to 14th position, while Lungi Ngidi has moved up six places to 16th. Bangladesh’s experienced Shakib Al Hasan continues to top the ODI all-rounder rankings with 343 rating points.
