Shubman Gill jumps to career-best second spot in ODI rankings; Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli also in top-10 | Cricket News

Featured in:


NEW DELHI: Opener Shubman Gill has reached a career-high second position in the ICC Men’s ODI rankings, making him the top-ranked among the three Indian batters currently in the top 10. This achievement was announced in the latest rankings issued on Wednesday.
The other two Indians in the top 10 are captain Rohit Sharma, who occupies the 8th position, and the exceptional Virat Kohli, who is placed 9th.
The last time India had three batters in the top 10 of the ODI rankings was back in January 2019 when Rohit, Kohli, and the now-out-of-favor veteran Shikhar Dhawan held those positions.
In the recent update, Gill has ascended one spot in the rankings. Gill played a crucial role by scoring 58 runs and forming a solid 121-run opening partnership with Rohit in the Asia Cup match against Pakistan.

Meanwhile, Rohit has impressed with three consecutive half-centuries in the ongoing Asia Cup, and Kohli’s unbeaten 122 against Pakistan contributed to his two-place climb in the rankings.
Notably, Pakistan also boast three batters within the top 10 of the ODI rankings, just ahead of the ICC Men’s ODI World Cup scheduled to begin in less than a month.
Captain Babar Azam leads the rankings by a significant margin of over 100 rating points compared to \ Gill. Additionally, Imam-ul-Haq and Fakhar Zaman occupy the 5th and 10th positions, respectively.
The latest weekly update, that also considers performances in three matches of the South Africa-Australia series and two matches of the England-New Zealand series, saw South Africa’s Temba Bavuma closing in on a top-10 place after striking three centuries and two half-centuries in his last eight ODIs. He has advanced 21 places to 11th position while his previous best was 25th.
Australia players Davis Warner (up one place to fourth), Travis Head (up six places to 20th) and Marnus Labuschagne (up 24 places to 45th) have made significant progress as has the Indian pair of KL Rahul (up 10 places to 37th) and Ishan Kishan (up two places to 22nd).
Aiden Markram, Sadeera Samarawickrama, Liam Livingstone, Daryl Mitchell and Devon Conway are among others to gain in the latest update.
New Zealand’s Trent Boult is up to joint-second place among bowlers while Australia leg-spinner Adam Zampa is in the top five of the bowling rankings for the first time after taking four wickets in the second match against South Africa.

Indian left-arm wrist-spinner Kuldeep Yadav has gained five places to reach seventh position after grabbing nine wickets in two Asia Cup matches.
Pakistan fast bowler Haris Rauf has soared eight spots and is in the 21st position while India fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah (up eight places to 27th) and all-rounder Hardik Pandya (up 21 places to 56th) have also made big gains. Pandya is also up four places to sixth among all-rounders.
South Africa spinners Keshav Maharaj (up 10 places to 25th) and Tabraiz Shamsi (up 15 places to 29th) are among others to move up the rankings.
