Dubai [UAE], January 18 (ANI): Former India captain Virat Kohli has been rewarded for his excellent recent form by rising the latest ICC Men’s ODI Player Rankings.
While Babar Azam, the captain of Pakistan, maintains a commanding lead with 887 rating points, Kohli increased his total to 750 points and is now closely pursuing Rassie van der Dussen (766) and Quinton de Kock (759) in second and third place, respectively.
Gill hit a century and a fifty during the series and his 207 runs at an average of 69 helped the opener improve 10 spots to 26th overall on the rankings for ODI batters.
Siraj makes the most notable jump, rising 15 ranks to third on the list of ODI bowlers as a result of his nine series wickets. He increases to a career-best rating of 685 points to cut the gap on pacesetters Trent Boult (730) and Josh Hazlewood.
Kuldeep has been promoted seven spots to 21st on the most recent list of bowlers in recognition of his five wickets in just two games against Sri Lanka.
Kane Williamson, the captain of New Zealand, scored 164 runs during the series and climbed three spots to the eighth spot overall on the most recent batter rankings. Teammate Devon Conway, who scored a century and fifty runs in the three games, moved up from outside the top 100 to the fifty-first spot.
