Skipper Rohit also played a decent knock of 83 in the opening match. Following his remarkable performance, Kohli and Rohit made noticeable gains in the ODI rankings and reached 6th and 8th position, respectively.

Apart from this, Siraj jumped four spots to the 18th position in the bowling charts. The 28-year-old had picked two wickets in the first game against the Islanders.

On the other hand, Suryakumar Yadav retained his throne and remained at the top spot in the recently updated T20I rankings for batters. In the last T20I against Sri Lanka, Yadav scored a spectacular 112 (51) to guide India to a series-clinching victory.

Wanindu Hasranga lost his top spot to Rashid Khan in the bowler’s rankings of the shortest format.

In Tests, Josh Hazelwood has made it to the top 10 as he took five wickets against South Africa in Sydney. However, Pat Cummins still remains to be the top-ranked bowler.
