The International Cricket Council’s (ICC) latest batsmen One Day International rankings are out and it has brought several adaptations as far as the Indian hard-hitters are concerned. In the new rank list, team India’s skipper Virat Kohli slips by a position while ex-captain MS Dhoni has risen up a bit.
Virat Kohli who kick-started the year 2017 with a phenomenal century against England at Pune has slipped to the 3rd rank in the table while MS Dhoni who smashed a hilarious hundred at Cuttack against England recently was promoted to no. 13 slot.
While out of form batsmen and the previous opening pair of team India, Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan are fixed at no. 12 and 14 slots respectively. However, Dhawan shares the 14th rank with English Batsman Jose Butler.
Australian opener and a massive batsman of all the time, David Warner tops the table and was ranked no 1 in the ranking list. And the 2nd position in the latest ranking list has been grabbed by South African master-giant AB Devilliers. For AB, it’s the first time that he has achieved this position in his career. He left Virat Kohli behind after amassing 367 runs in the five-match home series against Pakistan which his side won 4-1.
Emerging Indian batsman Kedar Jadhav’s 232 runs have helped him gain 57 slots to reach 47th ranking. English batsman Jason Roy’s knock of three 50s has led him into the top 20 for the first time as he has gained 23 slots to reach 17th.
In the bowling arena, none of the Indian bowlers were successful enough to make it in the top ten list. Getting dropped by 3 positions, Axar Patel is at no. 12 while the spinner Amit Mishra hold the 14th rank.
