The Indian team skipper Virat Kohli and Jasprit Bumrah have maintained their top position in the updated ICC ODI rankings despite a 3-2 series loss at home to Australia.

Batting rankings

Kohli scored two centuries in the recently concluded One-Day International series against Australia helping him score more than 300 runs in the series.

He further extended his lead at the top of the rankings over the second ranked Rohit Sharma as the vice-captain scored only 202 runs in the same series allowing the gap to get wider at the top.

Ross Taylor maintains his No.3 spot while Quinton de Kock gained four positions after a stellar series against the Sri Lankans. The Proteas wicket-keeper scored one century and three half-centuries in the 5-match ODI series to jump to No.4 in the ODI rankings.

Bowling rankings

Jasprit Bumrah also consolidated his position at the top as he took 7 wickets in the 5-match series. Trent Boult has seen his stock raise as he displaced Rashid Khan from the No.2 spot.

Imran Tahir and Kagiso Rabada make up the rest of the top 5 in men’s ICC ODI rankings.

All-rounder rankings

Rashid Khan stays atop the all-rounder rankings with the likes of Shakib Al Hasan and Mohammad Nabi in the top 3.

No Indian all-rounder features in top 10 with Kedar Jadhav sitting at 13th position and the injured Hardik Pandya slipping down to 18th position.

Team rankings

In team rankings, England stay atop the rankings with India very close behind in the second position.

New Zealand leapfrogged South Africa in third position, while Australia have displaced Pakistan from the fifth position after their first ODI series win in more than 15 months.

Bangladesh are in seventh position followed by Sri Lanka, West Indies and Afghanistan who constitute the top 10. Zimbabwe and Ireland stay in eleventh and twelfth position respectively.
