ICC ODI Team Rankings: Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma advance, close gap with Shubman Gill – Magazine Creations

Top Indian batsmen Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli have risen in the International Cricket Council (ICC) rankings for One Day Internationals (ODI), following the conclusion of the 2023 World Cup.

Kohli, who was named Player of the Tournament in the World Cup, jumped from fourth to third. The superstar scored 765 runs and three centuries during the tournament.

Sharma, the Indian skipper who played short but fiery knocks while opening the innings during the World Cup, has also moved higher in the world rankings. He is now in fourth place.

Both Kohli and Sharma have closed the gap on opener Shubman Gill, who continues to sit atop the world rankings table.

According to the ICC’s ranking system, Gill is in first place with 826 points, followed by former Pakistan captain Babar Azam in second place with 823 points and Kohli in third place with 791 points.

India now have three players in the top four in the ODI rankings.

Kohli has broken many records including legendary cricketer Sachin Tendulkar’s ODI centuries. Rohit smashed 597 runs and he and Kohli were the top scorers in the tournament.

Gill, who missed some matches, amassed 354 runs during the 50-over event, and Babar scored 320 as Pakistan failed to qualify for the knockout stages of the tournament.

South Africa’s opener Quinton de Kock has dropped two places to fifth in the ODI rankings, while New Zealand right-hander Daryl Mitchell has risen five places to sixth thanks to his 552 World Cup runs.

Australia’s Travis Head is the biggest attraction in the new ODI rankings, jumping 28 places to 15th overall after his impressive century and man-of-the-man performance in the World Cup summit match against India.

South African pacer Keshav Maharaj continues to top the latest ODI bowling rankings, with a slew of Australian players making progress following their World Cup wins.

Experienced seamer Josh Hazlewood has moved up four places to second overall, while fellow speedster Mitchell Starc has moved up eight places to 12th, and leader Pat Cummins has moved up seven places to 27th.

India’s Mohammed Siraj (third) and Jasprit Bumrah (fourth) remain in the top 10 for ODI bowlers but his teammate Kuldeep Yadav has dropped one place to tie for sixth.

Surprisingly, Mohammed Al-Shami, who shone in the World Cup and emerged as the best wicket-taker (24 wickets in 7 innings), fell to tenth place with 648 points from 657 points earlier.
