The International Cricket Council (ICC), on Wednesday, announced the latest rankings of One Day Internationals (ODIs).
Pakistan opener Imam-ul-Haq has gained several places to acquire the number three spot in the batters’ rankings headed by his teammate and skipper Babar Azam. Notably, in the recently-concluded ODI leg against Australia, Imam was the highest run-getter with 298 runs in three matches.
Similarly, Babar consolidated his No.1 ranking status with the help of back-to-back centuries against the Aussies, scoring a total of 276 runs during the three-match series. On the other hand, Aaron Finch, who struggled to find his form slipped three spots to number 10.
Meanwhile, the Indian duo of Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma have maintained their second and fourth place, respectively. Kohli is firm with 811 points, while Rohit has 791 points to his credit.
New Zealand batter Tom Latham has also advanced three spots to No.25, thanks to his unbeaten 140-run knock against the Netherlands in the second ODI. Similarly, Ross Taylor, who played his final international match against the same opposition on Monday, has slipped three spots to No.6.
In the bowling charts, Pakistan pacer Shaheen Afridi has broken into the top 10, jumping eight positions to claim the number seven spot. Australia leg-spinner Adam Zampa didn’t have great series against Pakistan, and as a result, he has slipped out of the top-10 bowlers’ rankings headed by New Zealand seamer Trent Boult.
🔸 Shaheen Afridi continues to climb
🔸 Imam-ul-Haq makes significant gains
