    Across the Tasman Sea, a number of batters made moves from New Zealand's second Test match against Bangladesh.

    Andrew Balbirnie made a move of five places to 35th after making a fifty in his side's defeat to the hosts, with Harry Tector jumping eight places to his highest ranking of 62nd following his score of (XXX). West Indies captain Kieron Pollard moved up to 86th on his return to the fifty-over game, with Shamarh Brooks, the Player of the Match, entering at 218th.

    Fakhar Zaman and Joe Root broke into the top 10 of the MRF Tyres ICC Men's ODI Batting Rankings while Rohit Sharma edged closer to Virat Kohli after his half-century in the first ODI against West Indies.

    Shai Hope lost out on valuable points and slipped out of the top 10 of the MRF Tyres ICC Men's ODI Batting Rankings after the first ODI against India. Fakhar Zaman and Joe Root broke into the top 10 of the batting rankings as a result, but the major leap happened elsewhere.

    Oman's Jatinder Singh, who made a hundred in the first match of the UAE series, part of the ICC Men's Cricket World Cup League 2, jumped 26 places to break into top 100 of the batting rankings.

    Jatinder is the second-highest run-scorer in the League 2 tournament with 594 runs in 23 matches.

    Babar Azam and Virat Kohli continued to hold onto the top two spots, but Rohit Sharma, with 807 rating points after his fifty in the first ODI of the series against West Indies, is sneaking in on Virat Kohli, who is at No.2 in the ODI Batting Rankings with 828 rating points.

    There was no movement in the top 10 of the bowling rankings, but Jason Holder, following his half-century in the first ODI against India, went up four places in the all-rounder rankings to get into the top 20.

    Australian quick Josh Hazlewood returned his best-ever T20I figures in the series opener against Sri Lanka, taking 4-12 in a spell, before capping another haul of 3-22 last week, with a match-sealing Super Over that went for just five runs. He is now number two among the T20I bowlers, just one point behind South Africa’s Tabraiz Shamsi in the MRF Tyres ICC Men’s T20I Player Rankings. This week’s ratings come after the first three Australia v Sri Lanka matches and the second and third India v West Indies games.

    In the series against Australia, Wanindu Hasaranga took five wickets in the first two matches, but having missed the final match, it wasn’t enough for him to continue onto the top spot, as he dropped to the third place in the T20I bowling rankings. His teammate Maheesh Theekshana was up 16 places to 29th. In the batters list, Sri Lanka’s Pathum Nissanka topped the run-scorers in the T20I series with Australia with 125 runs across the three games to move up 42 places and become joint 21st.

    Dipendra Singh Airee from Nepal was the leading run scorer in the Quadrangular T20I tournament held in Oman with 142 runs which helped him up 63 places to 53rd with the bat. Chirag Suri of the UAE also moved up the table thanks to his unbeaten 84 against Nepal, which was the highest individual score in the competition. In bowlers again, Oman’s Bilal Khan proved to be very economical, conceding just 62 runs in his 12 overs, to move to his career best position of 18th in T20I in the series.

    In the fifty over format, the Indian pair of Shreyas Iyer and Suryakumar Yadav have made strides up the table. Yadav scored 64 in the second ODI against the West Indies whilst Iyer made an 80 in the third to help the home side complete a 3-0 series win. Their teammate Rishabh Pant added a half-century in the third match to move to a career best of 469 points at the 71st place. Indian pacer Prasidh Krishna was the leading wicket-taker across both sides with nine wickets at just 7.55 to gain 50 places from 94th to 44th in the ODI bowlers list, whilst Alzarri Joseph took two wickets in each of the three matches to earn himself a place in the top 20 bowler’s list.

    The latest weekly update of the MRF Tyres ICC Men's Player Rankings sees lots of movement across the board.

    The Indian middle-order pair of Suryakumar Yadav and Venkatesh Iyer have made huge gains in the ICC Men's T20I Player Rankings. Both batters enjoyed a sensational series against West Indies, which saw the home side complete a 3-0 series win.

    Yadav was India's highest run-getter in the series while Iyer was second. In the first game, India lost three wickets in four overs and needed 65 off 45 when Yadav walked in to bat. Yadav and Iyer came together and took India across the line with more than an over to spare.

    In the final T20I against the Windies, the two once again bailed India out of trouble from 93/4. Both batters unleashed a barrage of shots against the West Indies bowlers and stitched a 91-run stand in just 37 balls. India posted a competitive total of 184/5, thanks to a stunning 65 off 31 balls from Suryakumar Yadav while Venkatesh Iyer remained unbeaten on 35 off 19.

    The performances helped Surykumar Yadav jump 35 spots to No.21 while Iyer made a massive jump of 203 spots to No.115 in the rankings for batters. West Indies' lone warrior with the bat, Nicholas Pooran, moved five places to No.13.

    The recently-concluded T20I series between Australia and Sri Lanka also caused some movement in the rankings. Australia's Ashton Agar broke into the top 10 rankings for bowlers, and currently sits at No.9.

    In the last two matches, Agar was miserly with his bowling and returned figures of 1/14 and 1/19. Sri Lanka's Maheesh Theekshana's rise in T20I cricket reflected in his rankings as well – he attained a career-high rating of 592 after climbing 12 places to No. 17.

    Oman captain Zeeshan Maqsood's performance in the ICC Men's T20 World Cup Qualifier A saw him break into the top 10 for all-rounders, rising four spots to No.6.

    In the Test rankings, following the first Test between New Zealand and South Africa, Kyle Jamieson and Tim Southee moved up a place each to occupy the No.3 and No.5 spot respectively, with the former attaining a career-high rating of 825.

    Neil Wagner's exploits with the bat and ball saw his scale four spots to No.13 in the all-rounders' rankings.

    Iyer scored three unbeaten half-centuries during India's 3-0 rout of Sri Lanka last month, with the 27-year-old amassing an impressive 204 runs at a strike rate of 174.

    His efforts helped him jump 27 places to 18th on the latest batter rankings, while team-mate Bhuvneshwar Kumar jumped three spots to 17th on the bowler rankings.

    The news wasn't so good for skipper Rohit Sharma, who dropped two spots to 13th on the rankings after managing just 50 runs from three hits against Sri Lanka.

    Sri Lanka's Pathum Nissanka scored an impressive 75 in the second game of the series and he was rewarded with a six-spot rise to ninth on the rankings, while former India captain Virat Kohli - who was rested for the series - fell out of the top 10 after dropping five places to 15th.

    The biggest mover on the Test rankings was South African quick Kagiso Rabada, who shot up three places to third following his impressive display against New Zealand.

    Rabada managed 10 wickets during the two-match series, with his magnificent haul of 5/60 in the first innings of the second Test helping the Proteas on their way to an important 198-run triumph.

    Kiwi duo Kyle Jamieson (drops two spots to fifth) and Tim Southee (drops one spot to sixth) lose ground in the bowler rankings, with Australia captain Pat Cummins and India veteran Ravi Ashwin still leading the way.

    Marnus Labuschagne remains as the top ranked Test batter, with New Zealander Devon Conway jumping six places to 17th following his 92 in the second innings of the second Test against South Africa.

    There wasn't much movement in the ODI rankings, with veteran spinner Rashid Khan re-claiming his spot in the top 10 for bowlers following five wickets from the recent three-game series against Bangladesh.

    Rashid jumped six spots to ninth, while team-mate Mehidy Hasan Miraz dropped two spots to seventh following the series.

    Kiwi veteran Trent Boult remains the top ranked ODI bowler, while Pakistan right-hander Babar Azam leads the way for batters.

    RAVINDRA JADEJA IS NO.1 ALL-ROUNDER IN MRF TYRES ICC MEN'S TEST PLAYER RANKINGS


    Ravindra Jadeja’s performance at India's recent Test win against Sri Lanka in Mohali has catapulted him to the no. 1 position in the MRF Tyres ICC Men's Test Player Rankings. His unbeaten 175 lifted him up to 17 places from 54th to 37th with the bat and he added nine wickets to move up to 17th with the ball. His all-round contribution was enough for him to regain the top all-rounder spot from Jason Holder, who had held it since February 2021. Jadeja’s only previous time on top was in August 2017, when he spent a week at number one.

    The Rawalpindi Test between host Pakistan and Australia was a batting feast, and Imam-ul-Haq celebrated by striking a century in each innings to move to a career best 63rd with 477 points.

    Hi teammate Azhar Ali struck 185 and moved up ten places to 12 whilst Abdullah Shafique added a second-innings century to gain 27 places to 67. Australia’s Marnus Labuschagne missed out on a century, being dismissed for 90, but that was enough to gain a point up to 936 and 12th position on his own in the list of highest-ever batting ratings. Usman Khawaja also fell in the 90s but continued his renaissance, moving up six places to 24 with the bat, his highest position for three years.

    In bowlers, Nauman Ali of Pakistan impressed with figures of 6-107 in Australia’s first innings and saw him gain 19 places to 51.

    In T20I cricket, whilst the top 12 batters are unchanged, at joint thirteenth position is Afghanistan’s Hazratullah Zazai, who’s unbeaten 59 in the second match against Bangladesh at Mirpur ensured a shared series win. For the hosts, Liton Das starred in the first match with 60, which helped him to gain 26 places to 49th over the course of the series. With the ball, Nasum Ahmed has made his first appearance in the top 10 bowlers, thanks to his ‘Player of the Match’ performance of 4-10 in the first match.

    Jasprit Bumrah and Dimuth Karunaratne have made significant gains in the latest MRF Tyres ICC Test Rankings, following their brilliance in the recently concluded India-Sri Lanka Test series. Virat Kohli, meanwhile, has slipped from fifth to ninth among batters.

    Jasprit Bumrah, who bagged eight wickets, including his maiden Test five-for at home in the second India v Sri Lanka Test in Bangalore, jumped up six spots to attain fourth ranking in the MRF Tyres ICC Test Rankings for bowlers. The Indian speedster leapfrogged Shaheen Afridi, Kyle Jamieson, Tim Southee, James Anderson, Neil Wagner and Josh Hazlewood in the table.

    Mohammed Shami climbed up a spot to displace fellow countryman Ravindra Jadeja to 17th, while Lasith Embuldeniya and Praveen Jayawickrama jumped up five positions each to 32nd and 45th slot respectively. Pat Cummins, Ravichandran Ashwin and Kagiso Rabada have retained the top three spots.

    In the batting charts, Sri Lanka Test captain Dimuth Karunaratne jumped up to a career best No.5 after his fighting 107 in the second innings in Bangalore. Virat Kohli, however, slipped to the ninth spot, with Pakistan skipper Babar Azam advancing to No.8 in the table led by Marnus Labuschagne, followed by Joe Root, Steve Smith and Kane Williamson respectively.

    Nkrumah Bonner and Shreyas Iyer took giant leaps, advancing a staggering 22 and 40 spots respectively to 22nd and 37th position. While Bonner scored 123 and gritty, unbeaten 38 in the first drawn Test against England in Antigua last week, Iyer was rewarded for his match-winning 92 and 67 against Sri Lanka. Zak Crawley’s 121 in the second innings against West Indies saw him jump 13 spots to 49th.

    In the all-rounders’ table, Jason Holder has reclaimed the top spot, replacing Ravindra Jadeja, who had risen to No.1 after his 175* and nine wickets in the Mohali Test earlier this month. Ravichandran Ashwin, Shakib Al Hasan and Ben Stokes round off the top five.

    The latest update in the MRF Tyres ICC Men's Test Player Rankings for batting is headlined by Babar Azam, who makes massive gains after a stunning showing against Australia.

    The Pakistan skipper was at his glorious best against Australia during the second Test of the series in Karachi. Batting for almost two days, Babar played a marathon knock of 196 in 425 deliveries as Pakistan pulled off a sensational draw. The performance has seen Babar gain three spots, moving up to No.5 in the rankings chart.

    Other star performers with the bat from the same match – Mohammad Rizwan and Usman Khawaja – have also taken massive a massive leap. Rizwan has moved up six spots, to be joint No.11 alongside David Warner after his knock of 104* in the second innings. Usman Khawaja, who scored 160 and 44* in Karachi, moves up eleven spots to No.13.

    West Indies skipper Kraigg Brathwaite is another big mover, gaining sixteen spots up to No.27 after scoring 160 and 56* in the second Test against England in Barbados.

    In the bowling charts, Shaheen Afridi has moved down one spot to No.6 after struggling in the Karachi Test, picking up only two wickets in the match. Mitchell Starc, who picked up three scalps in the first innings moves up one place to No.15.

    In the all-rounders' chart, Jason Holder has dropped down to No.2 after struggling during the second Test in Barbados. Holder picked up only one wicket and aggregated 12 runs in the match.

    Australian skipper Pat Cummins has moved up one spot to No.8 after aggregating three wickets and scoring 34* in the first innings of the Karachi Test.

    In the ODI charts, South African players are the big gainers after their seven-wicket win against Bangladesh in the second match in Johannesburg. Quinton de Kock, who scored a blistering 41-ball 62 moves up one place to No.3 in the batting charts.

    Kagiso Rabada, who picked up his second ODI five-wicket haul, moves up five places to No.8 in the bowling rankings, breaking into the top 10.

    There is some good news for Bangladesh though, as Mehidy Hasan gains four places in the all-rounders' rankings after a knock of 38 and picking up one wicket in the second ODI.

    Usman Khawaja’s stellar show in Australia’s impressive Test series win over Pakistan has helped him surge to No.7 in the latest MRF Tyres ICC Test Rankings for batters.

    Khawaja was easily the standout batsman in the three-match Test series, having aggregated 496 runs from five innings at a whopping 165.33. His scores in the series read 97, 160, 44*, 91 and 104* - the last two coming in Australia’s series-clinching 115-run win in the third Test in Lahore. That was after he’d begun the year with twin hundreds in the New Year’s Ashes Test in Sydney, which happened to be his comeback to the format after more than two years.

    The left-hander leapfrogged David Warner, Rishabh Pant, Virat Kohli, Travis Head and Rohit Sharma respectively to jump up six spots to No.7 in the latest MRF Tyres ICC Test Rankings for batters.

    Abdullah Shafique, who finished as the second-highest run-scorer in the series with 397 runs at 79.40, jumped up 22 spots to break into top 40, while Mohammad Rizwan slipped eight spots to No. 19.

    Meanwhile, England skipper Joe Root has slipped to No.4, with Steve Smith and Kane Williamson taking up the No. 2 and 3 position respectively in a chart led by Marnus Labuschagne. Joshua de Silva’s heroic hundred in Grenada has helped him jump 21 spots to No.63.

    Among all-rounders, Jason Holder has been displaced by Ravichandran Ashwin at the No.2 spot, while Kyle Mayers' brilliance in Grenada has helped him leap a staggering 29 spots to No. 11. Ravindra Jadeja retains the top position.

    Mayers, who bagged 2/13 and 5/18 in the third Test, his only appearance in the series, has jumped up 33 spots to No.48 among bowlers. Shaheen Afridi has displaced Kyle Jamieson to claim the fifth spot, while Mitchell Starc has jumped up four spots to No.11.

    Australia skipper Pat Cummins has further consolidated his status as the top-ranked Test bowler, after having bagged 12 wickets from three Tests, including a game-changing five-for in the third.

    In ODIs, Adam Zampa jumped up six positions to break into top 10 in the latest MRF Tyres ICC ODI Rankings for bowlers. Zampa returned 4/38 in Australia’s 88-run win over Pakistan on Tuesday, 29 March.

    Shakib Al Hasan jumped up four spots to No. 8, while fellow countryman Taskin Ahmed jumped up 15 spots to No.33, with the latter having returned 5/35 in Bangladesh’s dominant nine-wicket win over South Africa last week. Kagiso Rabada meanwhile, has slipped from No.8 to No. 13.

    Tamim Iqbal jumped up to No.20 in batting rankings, while Quinton de Kock slipped a spot to fifth, being overtaken by Rohit Sharma. Imam-ul-Haq’s valiant hundred on Tuesday has helped him return to the top 10.

    Nepal’s Rohit Paudel has jumped up 41 places to No.83, after having scored a stroke-filled 126 in his side’s narrow six-run defeat to Papua New Guinea last week.

    Colin de Grandhomme has re entered the top-10 among all-rounders and is currently placed at No.7.

    Babar Azam, Trent Boult and Shakib continue to top the batting, bowling and the all-rounders’ charts respectively.

    After dominating in the ODI series against Australia, Babar Azam has retained his top spot, while Imam-ul-Haq has gained several positions to reach No.3 in the latest MRF Tyres ICC Men's ODI Player Rankings for batting.

    South African captain Dean Elgar after smashing two half-centuries in the first Test against Bangladesh is one of the players to gain a few spots in the latest ICC Men's Test Player Rankings. Elgar's scores of 67 and 64 in the opening Test have seen him moving up three spots, up to No.13.

    Another star performer from the match was Mahmudul Hasan Joy, who became the first Bangladesh batter to score a Test century against South Africa. His maiden century in just his third Test helped him jump thirty-seven spots to No.66.

    Meanwhile, there aren't any changes in the list of the top 10 batters, with Australian Marnus Labuschagne still sitting at the top, followed by his fellow countryman Steve Smith and New Zealand captain Kane Williamson in the third position.

    In the bowling charts, Australia captain Pat Cummins still tops the list followed by India duo Ravichandran Ashwin in the second spot and Jasprit Bumrah in the third. Kagiso Rabada, who is unavailable for their home Test series against Bangladesh, slipped one spot down and now stands at No.4, along with Shaheen Afridi who made a one-spot jump.

    South Africa spinner Keshav Maharaj after his heroics in the first Test match against Bangladesh has moved up two spots to No.28, after registering figures of 7/32 in the second innings. Bangladeshi spinner Mehidy Hasan also gained four spots to join Chris Woakes at No.31 after figures of 3/94 and 3/85 in the Durban Test.

    The all-rounders’ chart remained unchanged with no significant gains. India all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja maintains his top spot, followed by Ashwin at No.2 and Jason Holder at No.3.

    In the ODI rankings, Pakistani skipper Babar Azam further consolidated his No.1 ODI batter status. Babar smashed back-to-back centuries against Australia and made 276 runs during the three-match series at an average of 138.

    Pakistani left-hander batter Imam-ul-Haq is the biggest mover in the ODI rankings. His top form against Australia in the recently concluded ODI series has helped him move up seven spots to No.3. Imam remained the highest run-getter of the series, scoring 298 runs in three matches at a stellar average of 149.

    Meanwhile, Australia skipper Aaron Finch who has recently struggled to find his rhythm has slipped three spots to No.10. Travis Head who made full use of the opportunity to open innings for Australia, managed to gain five spots to No.34.

    New Zealand batter Tom Latham moved up three spots to No.25 after an unbeaten 140-run knock against the Netherlands in the second ODI. His teammate, Ross Taylor, who played his final international match against Netherlands on Monday, slipped three spots to No.6.

    In the bowling charts, Shaheen Afridi after his recent performance against Pakistan has made huge gains to make it into the top 10. Shaheen gained eight spots and now stands at No.7 on the list topped by Trent Boult.

    Australia leg-spinner Adam Zampa after the ODI series against Pakistan has slipped five spots and now stands outside the top 10 at No.14. Netherlands’ left-arm pacer Fred Klaassen picked some crucial wickets during their series against New Zealand helping him gain 23 spots to No.55. Meanwhile, New Zealand spinner Ish Sodhi also climbed five spots to No.37.

    There are no significant movements in the all-rounders' chart, with only Colin de Grandhomme and Mitchell Santner swapping positions within the top 10. Grandhomme moved up one rank to No.6 in the list topped by Shakib Al Hasan.

    What a rise from Imam.

    People need to stop disrespecting him and start appreciating his efforts.

    The gap between Babar and the rest is getting bigger and bigger though.

    The weekly update of the MRF Tyres ICC Men's Player Rankings sees marked movement after plenty of cricket around the world.


    Shaheen Afridi's 2/21 in the one-off T20I against Australia sees him climb fours spots to No.10 in the latest MRF Tyres ICC T20I Player Rankings. Despite the best efforts of the ICC Men's Cricketer of the Year 2021 in the penultimate over, Australia got over the line with five balls to spare.

    The ICC Men's Player of the Month for March, Babar Azam, continued his stay at the top of the batters' rankings, though Mohammad Rizwan, the ICC Men's T20I Player of the Year 2021, dropped a spot to No.3.

    Josh Hazlewood, who did not feature in the game, dropped a spot to No.3 with Adil Rashid moving to No.2.

    Nepal's Dipendra Singh Airee made gains across all departments after the conclusion of the tri-series that also involved PNG and Malaysia. He finished as the Player of the Series, including a brilliant all-round performance (54* and 4/18) in the final. He rose 13 spots to No.38 for batters, 47 spots to No.135 for bowlers and 10 spots to No.10 for all-rounders.

    JJ Smit of Namibia broke into the top 5 for T20I all-rounders with a stunning all-round showing against Uganda. Batting first, he scored 71 off just 35 balls and then finished with figures of 6/10, which included a hat-trick.

    There was some movement in the Test player Rankings as well after the conclusion of the series between South Africa and Bangladesh. Keshav Maharaj, who starred both with the bat and the ball in the final game and took home the Player of the Match and Player of the Series, rose to 21st in bowlers' rankings and 13th in all-rounders.

    His partner in crime and fellow spinner Simon Harmer too climbed 26 spots to No.54 in bowlers rankings. The off-spinner finished as the second-highest wicket-taker in the series with 13 wickets, only second to Maharaj (16).

    The two spinners combined to pick up all the wickets in the second innings, bundling Bangladesh out for 80 as they swept the visitors 2-0.

    Australia have strengthened their claim as being the best team in the world after extending their lead at the top of the MRF Tyres ICC Men’s Test Team Rankings.

    The ICC released their annual update of the rankings on Wednesday and Australia now lead second-placed India by nine points with a rating of 128 points.

    The new rankings reflect all Test series completed since May 2019, with those completed prior to May 2021 weighted at 50% and subsequent series weighted at 100%.

    It is a well-deserved mark for Pat Cummins' side, who most recently claimed a 1-0 series triumph over Pakistan away from home to ensure they remain at the top of the rankings and the World Test Championship.

    India (119 points) hold on to second place on the rankings, ahead of a tight battle for third between New Zealand (111) and South Africa (110).

    South Africa closed the gap from 13 to the solitary point on the latest rankings, following a jump in their rating from 102 to 110 points.

    Rounding out the top five is Pakistan with 93 points, with Babar Azam's side catapulting past England (88) to snatch fifth place.



    England fell nine points from 97 to 88 in the latest rankings, with new skipper Ben Stokes taking over a Test side that has won just one Test match in the last 12 months.

    That new rating is the lowest mark England have dropped to since 1995, with their 4-1 series victory over India in 2018 now dropping from the rankings.

    However their rating could still improve over the coming months, with their postponed Test against India from last year to be held at Edgbaston in July, and the result of that match will be included in their current rating.

    The rankings contain ten teams, with Afghanistan and Ireland yet to play enough Tests to be included.

    The latest annual change to the MRF Tyres ODI Team Rankings has resulted in several shifts.

    ICC Men's ODI Team Rankings

    The rankings cover ODIs from May 2019 to May 2022, with 50% weighting for the first two years of results and 100% in the most recent 12 months.

    New Zealand can lay claim to the No.1 ODI ranking, though they have an England side hot on their heels, closing the gap to just one rating point.



    Since the last annual change, England comfortably brushed aside Sri Lanka and Pakistan in ICC Cricket World Cup Super League action, claiming 55 points through the 2-0 and 3-0 series wins at home.

    It meant the gap between Eoin Morgan’s side and Australia has widened from seven to 17 points, with Australia dropping five points in the latest update. Aaron Finch's men did claim two wins in three matches against the West Indies in Barbados, though dropped two matches in their tour of Pakistan.

    Behind the scenes with Ian Smith, Nasser Hussain, Ian Bishop, Brendon McCullum and Isa Guha as they called a tense finish to the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 final between England and New Zealand.
    Those results helped Pakistan climb one spot climb to fifth, overtaking South Africa and moving closer to India in what was effectively a ten rating point swing. While only playing nine ODIs in the last twelve months, the side dropped four, including all three on the recent tour to South Africa.

    Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, West Indies and Afghanistan remain in the same spots from seventh to 10th respectively, while Ireland have moved to 11th over Scotland. Led by Andy Balbirnie, Ireland's successful tour to the Caribbean was a catalyst in the shuffle.

    Cricket World Cup Super League Standings

    Arguably the form League 2 outfit at the moment, Scotland sit at 12th as the highest Associate side, with Oman, running first in the same competition, were unable to move up from their spot in 16th.

    Ahmed Raza’s UAE sit in third on the CWC League 2 standings, with the top three sealing an automatic spot into the ICC Cricket World Cup Qualifier 2023.

    Their rebuild is reflected in the rankings, making the biggest gain. Moving up two places to 13th having gained six rating points, Zimbabwe moved in the opposite direction, down from 13th to 15th, losing six points. The Netherlands maintain their position on the 14th spot as the teams shift around them, with Namibia remaining on the 17th spot.

    Nepal slid a spot to 19th, overtaken by USA, though have played the fewest matches in the League 2 cycle, and play 24 matches in the next year.

    PNG’s one-win League 2 campaign leaves them stuck on 20th.

    India have solidified their position at the top of the MRF Tyres ICC Men's T20I Team Rankings following the annual update on Wednesday, 4 May.



    India's lead over England on the top of the charts has extended to five rating points, from one previously.

    The new rankings reflect all T20I series completed since May 2019, with those completed prior to May 2021 weighted at 50 per cent and subsequent series weighted at 100 per cent.

    India have been in brilliant form in the format, following their disappointment at the 2021 ICC Men's T20 World Cup in UAE and Oman, where they failed to make the semis.

    India have seen off New Zealand, West Indies and Sri Lanka on home turf, under the captaincy of Rohit Sharma, who took over from Virat Kohli following the global event last year.

    England are on second place with 265 rating points. Pakistan round up the top three with 261 rating points.

    South Africa, ranked fourth, have made a jump of one spot – maintaining their old rating points (253) – while Australia too have gained a spot in the table and now sit at fifth, while maintaining their rating points (251).

    New Zealand have dropped two places to No.6, losing five rating points (250). West Indies (240 points) remain on the seventh spot.

    Bangladesh (233 points) and Sri Lanka (230 points) have both gained one position in the chart to occupy the eighth and ninth positions respectively. Afghanistan have dropped down two places, rounding out the top ten after losing six rating points (226).

    Portugal are the biggest overall gainers in the annual update, gaining eleven points (54). This has seen them jump five places in the charts, moving up to the 45th position.

    Overall, the number of ranked teams has dropped down to 72 from 91, with each team being required to play a minimum of six rated matches since May 2019.

    This rankings update has been very good for Pakistan. We should look to overtake India in the ODI rankings and work our way back up in the T20 rankings.

    Bangladesh player Liton Das and Sri Lanka’s Angelo Mathews have made valuable gains in the MRF Tyres ICC Men’s Test Player Rankings after fine performances in the drawn first match of their ICC World Test Championship series in Chattogram.

    Wicketkeeper-batter Liton has moved up three places to 17th position after notching 88 in Bangladesh’s only innings, while Player of the Match Mathews’s knock of 199 in the first innings has lifted him five places to 21st among batters in the list led by Australia’s Marnus Labuschagne.

    Mushfiqur Rahim and Tamim Iqbal are other Bangladesh batters to advance in the latest weekly rankings update after scoring centuries that took Bangladesh to a total of 465. Mushfiqur, who notched 105, is up four places to 25th, while Tamim has gained six places to reach 27th position following his innings of 133.

    Sri Lanka middle-order batters Kusal Mendis (up four places to 49th) and Dinesh Chandimal (up six places to 53rd) have also gained following useful knocks in both innings.

    In the rankings for bowlers, Bangladesh all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan has inched up one place to 29th after finishing with four wickets in the match, while off-spinner Nayeem Hasan’s career-best figures of six for 105 in the first innings see him progress nine places to 53rd.

    Sri Lanka medium-fast bowler Kasun Rajitha has moved from 75th to 61st after taking four wickets and Asitha Fernando is now in the top 100 of the list led by Australia captain Pat Cummins.

    Bangladesh star Liton Das made massive gains in the latest MRF Tyres ICC Men's Test Player Rankings update.

    Liton Das moved up five spots to 12th on the rankings and attained career-best rating points of 724, which is also the highest for any Bangladesh batter in Test cricket history.

    Das had an impressive series with the bat at home against Sri Lanka, where he was Bangladesh's second-highest run-getter with 281 runs in two Tests that included two hundreds and two fifties. Though the Tigers ended up at the losing end, Das managed to shine bright in the series.

    Das' team-mate Mushfiqur Rahim – who became the first Bangladesh batter to score 5000 Test runs and was also Bangladesh's highest run-scorer in the series – rose eight spots to be joint 17th in the latest update.

    Sri Lanka's Angelo Mathews finished that Test series with two centuries and as the leading run scorer with 344 runs and was duly rewarded by jumping six spots to equal 15th on the latest rankings.

    Mathews' fellow centurion from the second Test, Dinesh Chandimal, also rose nine spots to No.44. The pair put together a 199-run partnership in the first innings, putting their team ahead in the game with a lead of 141 runs.

    Australia right-hander Marnus Labuschagne remains the No.1 ranked batter in the world, ahead of team-mate Steve Smith, New Zealand captain Kane Williamson, England's Joe Root and Pakistan skipper Babar Azam. Skipper Dimuth Karunaratne continued his reign as Sri Lanka's top batter as he remains at No.6.

    It was Sri Lanka seamer Kasun Rajitha that made the biggest impression for bowlers as the right-armer jumped an impressive 17 places to 44th on the latest bowling rankings.

    Team-mate Asitha Fernando also made giant strides as the pacer moved up 44 places to be ranked 52nd. He collected 13 wickets during the two-Test series against Bangladesh and was also the Player of the Match in Sri Lanka's 10-wicket win in the final match.

    Australia captain Pat Cummins remains the No.1 ranked bowler, with India duo Ravichandran Ashwin and Jasprit Bumrah not far behind the impressive right-armer.

    Pakistan veteran Sidra Ameen has capped off a superb series with the bat against Sri Lanka by making a massive jump up the latest set of MRF Tyres Women's ODI Batting Rankings.

    The ICC Women's player rankings were updated on Tuesday and Sidra was the big mover courtesy of her 218 runs at an average of 72.66 during the three-game ODI series against Sri Lanka.

    Sidra jumped a massive 19 places to be ranked 35th overall on the batter rankings, with the 30-year-old making a big gain thanks to a century and half-century in Karachi.

    It caps off a remarkable start to the year for Sidra, who became the first Pakistani woman to score a century in the history of the ICC Women's Cricket World Cup when she scored a brilliant 104 against Bangladesh in New Zealand in March.

    Sri Lanka skipper Chamari Athapaththu scored a smashing 101 in the second ODI and aggregated 142 runs in the three ODIs. She re-enters the rankings at No.23.

    Australia's Alyssa Healy still leads England's Nat Sciver at the top of the ODI batter rankings after the duo dominated the Women's World Cup earlier this year.

    Ireland youngster Gaby Lewis is the big mover on the latest T20 batter rankings, with the right-hander jumping an impressive seven spots to be rated equal 23rd overall following an impressive showing against South Africa.

    Lewis has 83 runs to her name from the opening two matches of the three-game T20I series and that form has been duly rewarded by the rise in the rankings.

    South Africa duo Tazmin Brits (up three spots to 36th) and Chloe Tryon (rise of four places to equal 49th) also made some gains, while right-armer Nadine de Klerk rose eight places to equal 25th on the all-rounder rankings.

    De Klerk also made her move up the bowler rankings, with the 22-year-old rising 22 places to be 48th overall behind England spinner Sophie Ecclestone.

    De Klerk's South African team-mate Tumi Sekhukhune is the biggest mover on the bowling rankings, with her five scalps from the opening two matches of the T20 series seeing her rise 20 spots to 27th overall.

    The battle for prestige among the top five batters in the world has further intensified following the latest update of the MRF Tyres ICC Test batting rankings.

    Reigning ICC Test Cricketer of the Year Joe Root has been the big mover on the latest rankings release, with the former England captain rising two spots to sit in second place behind Australia's Marnus Labuschagne.

    Root's sudden rise comes on the back of his match-winning century in the first Test against New Zealand at Lord's, an innings that also saw the right-hander become the second Englishman and 14th player overall to register 10,000 Test runs.

    The 31-year-old moves within just 10 rankings points of Labuschagne and could close the gap even further when the second Test between England and New Zealand commences in Nottingham on Friday.

    With Root's rise, it also sees a small re-shuffle within the top five as Australia's Steve Smith drops one place to third on the latest rankings.

    Pakistan captain Babar Azam jumps a spot to claim fourth place, while New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson - who managed scores of just two and 15 at Lord's - drops two places to fifth.

    There are also some changes in the latest Test bowler rankings, with towering New Zealand pacer Kyle Jamieson the biggest mover on the back of his six wickets for the match against England.

    Jamieson rises two places to claim third, with India speedster Jasprit Bumrah (fourth) and Pakistan quick Shaheen Shah Afridi (fifth) dropping one spot apiece.

    Australia captain Pat Cummins remains the top ranked bowler with 901 rankings points, some 51 points ahead of veteran India spinner Ravichandran Ashwin with 850 points.

    Ashwin remains second on the all-rounder rankings behind team-mate Ravindra Jadeja, with Jamieson dropping one place to eighth on the latest rankings update.

    Australia seamer Josh Hazlewood has been rewarded for his recent good form by rising up to second place on the latest MRF Tyres ICC T20I bowling rankings.

    Former all-rounder Shane Watson recently declared on The ICC Review that Hazlewood is currently Australia's best T20 fast bowler and on recent form he may be correct.

    Fresh from a consistent performance in the ICC T20 World Cup in Dubai last year and an eye-catching effort at the recent IPL, Hazlewood showed his class with a four-wicket haul for Australia during their dominant 10-wicket victory over Sri Lanka on Tuesday.

    That match-winning spell helped Hazlewood overtake England spinner Adil Rashid and claim second place on the latest rankings for bowlers, with South African spinner Tabraiz Shamsi now within striking distance for the Australian right-armer.

    Shamsi has a total of 784 points, with Hazlewood's rating rising to 778 points and just a total of six points behind the experienced left-armer.

    There was also some movement in the T20 batter rankings following Australia's victory in Colombo, with veteran skipper Aaron Finch regaining his position in the top five following his unbeaten knock of 61.

    Finch looked to be back somewhere near his best during his 40-ball innings as the right-hander overtook New Zealand's Devon Conway into fifth place on the rankings.

    Fellow opener David Warner finished with 70* in that match and jumped eight spots to claim 45th place on the rankings in the process, but it wasn't just the Australia players that made some large gains.

    Sri Lanka opener Pathum Nissanka looked good for his 36 against Australia and was rewarded as he rose to a career high rating of 689 and seventh place on the rankings for batters.

    Team-mate Charith Asalanka - who top-scored for Sri Lanka with 38 - jumped a whopping 14 spots to move to 29th overall.

    While there wasn't much change near the top of the latest MRF Tyres ICC ODI batting rankings, a pair of Afghanistan players made a move on the bowling and all-rounder rankings.

    Veteran right-armer Mohammad Nabi has six wickets to his name during the first two matches of Afghanistan's ODI series against Zimbabwe and his good form has seen him rise eight spots to 11th overall on the bowler rankings.

    Team-mate Rashid Khan is one spot ahead of Nabi in 10th on the bowler rankings, but the champion white-ball spinner has jumped one place to third on the list of T20 all-rounders.

    Rashid has 39 runs and four wickets to his name through the first two games of the series and both he and Nabi could continue to climb as Afghanistan's series against Zimbabwe comes to a close.

    Pakistan pip India in the latest ICC ODI Team Rankings

    Pakistan have usurped India in the MRF Tyres ICC Men's ODI Team Rankings after completing a clean sweep over West Indies in Multan.

    Babar Azam's side jumped a spot to No.4 in the latest MRF Tyres ICC Men's ODI Team Rankings after the series win over West Indies in Multan.

    Before the start of the series, Pakistan were placed fifth in the rankings with a rating of 102. But the 3-0 clean sweep over the Windies has boosted them to No.4 with rating of 106, leaving India behind at 105.

    Pakistan have enjoyed a brilliant last couple of years in the 50-over format. Apart from the blip against England away from home, they have taken on all comers and emerged victorious, including 2-1 series wins against Zimbabwe and South Africa.

    They defeated Australia by the same margin when they came to visit Pakistan for the first time since 1998. West Indies stood no chance against Pakistan as they were rampaged 3-0.

    Good signs for Pakistan as they close in on qualifying for next year's ICC Cricket World Cup in India.

    This period of upsurgence has come under the captaincy of Babar Azam, who has led by example for Pakistan in all formats of the game. With his recent century in the first match against West Indies, he became the first batter to score three consecutive ODI centuries twice, having previously achieved the feat in 2016 as well.

    And with a fifty in the second ODI, he broke the world record for most consecutive 50+ scores (9) in men's international cricket across all formats.

    The top-ranked ODI batter has built a troop of trusted players along the way. One of them is Imam-ul-Haq, who has enjoyed a purple patch of late and has seven scores of 50+ in his last seven ODIs to show for his efforts. ICC Men's Player of the Year Shaheen Afridi has been the leader of the pack of bowlers that consists of Haris Rauf, Hasan Ali, Imad Wasim and Shadab Khan, among others.

    India, though, will have a chance to climb the rankings as they play England and West Indies (three ODIs each) before Pakistan play their next ODI series in August.

    Marnus Labuschagne's reign as the highest-ranked Test batter in the world is over as England right-hander Joe Root claimed top spot on the latest ICC MRF Tyres Men's Test Batter rankings.

    Labuschagne rose to the top in December last year following knocks of 103 and 51 against England in Adelaide, but Root's recent run of form has seen the Australian usurped at the head of proceedings.

    Root has already scored four centuries this calendar year and become just the second Englishman to score more than 10,000 Test runs and that has seen the 31-year-old jump in front of Labuschagne as the No.1 ranked batter in the world.

    The Englishman now has a total of 897 rating points, five points more than Labuschagne in second place.

    Labuschagne may get the chance to regain top billing when Australia take on Sri Lanka in a two-match World Test Championship series away from home later this month, but Root has a busy period of Test cricket ahead of him too.

    Root is currently in the middle of a three-match Test series against New Zealand, with England also hosting India for a one-off Test and South Africa for three matches over the coming months.

    Australia's Steve Smith remains in third place on the latest Test rankings, with Pakistan captain Babar Azam and New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson making up the top five.

    The biggest mover in the rankings was Daryl Mitchell, with the New Zealand batter rising a whopping 33 places to sit 17th overall following scores of 190 and 69* in the second Test against England at Trent Bridge.

    There was some reshuffling in the latest bowling rankings with towering Kiwi quick Kyle Jamieson dropping three places to sixth after he injured his back against England.

    That allowed India speedster Jasprit Bumrah (third), Pakistan pacer Shaheen Afridi (fourth) and South Africa quick Kagiso Rabada (fifth) to all rise a spot, while a pair of Jamieson's New Zealand team-mates swapped positions inside the top 10.

    Experienced left-armer Trent Boult jumped four places to ninth on the bowling rankings, but that saw compatriot Tim Southee demoted five spots to 13th.

    Pakistan now boast the two highest-rated ODI batters in the world for the first time after in-form opener Imam-ul-Haq went past India veteran Virat Kohli, to join team-mate Babar Azam at the top of the ICC MRF Tyres Men's One Day Batter rankings.

    Imam scored three half-centuries during Pakistan's recent ODI series at home against West Indies. His form was duly rewarded as he won the Player of the Series award and made a move on the latest rankings that were released on Wednesday.

    The 26-year-old jumped a massive 20 rating points to move in front of Kohli and now has a career best mark of 815 rating points.

    That is, of course, still well behind Babar's mark of 892, with the Pakistan captain maintaining his enormous lead at the head of the ODI batter rankings following his 17th ODI century in the opening match against West Indies.

    There was some other minor moves inside the top 10, with Aaron Finch rising a spot to ninth as Australia team-mate David Warner fell to 10th - while England's Jonny Bairstow dropped two places to eighth and South Africa's Rassie van der Dussen jumped a spot to seventh.

    There was more good news for Pakistan on the latest bowler rankings, as tall pacer Shaheen Afridi jumped two places to fourth following his good series with the ball against West Indies.

    New Zealand quick Trent Boult remains on top of the bowler rankings, but Australia seamer Josh Hazlewood and Kiwi team-mate Matt Henry are closing in after they jumped one spot to second and third respectively.

    England quick Chris Woakes was the man to make way out of the top five as he fell four spots to equal sixth, tied with Mujeeb Ur Rahman after the Afghanistan spinner rose two places.

    The biggest mover on the all-rounder rankings is Oman's Zeeshan Maqsood, with the leftie jumping 13 places to 10th following a string of impressive performances in the ICC Cricket World Cup League 2 action.

    The experienced 34-year-old scored an unbeaten century against Nepal earlier this month and then backed that up with a four-wicket haul with the ball in Oman's following match against USA.

    Imam and Rizwan join Babar at the top of ICC ODI and T20I Rankings

    Lahore, 15 June 2022:

    For the first time since the ICC ODI and T20I Player rankings were introduced, Pakistan batters have occupied the top two positions in the latest rankings, which the ICC released on Wednesday.

    Pakistan’s all-format captain Babar Azam is joined by Imam-ul-Haq as the second-ranked ODI batter, while Mohammad Rizwan has moved up one place to second in the T20I rankings.

    Imam’s 199 runs in the ODI series against the West Indies in Pakistan’s 3-0 series win has helped him to move ahead of India’s Virat Kohli. Imam now leads Kohli (811 points) by four points, while Babar continues to sit on top of the tree with 892 points.

    Pakistan opener Fakhar Zaman has joined India’s Shikhar Dawan at 13th position.

    Amongst the ODI bowlers, Shaheen Afridi has broken into the top-five for the first time in his career. The left-arm fast bowler, who is ranked fourth in Tests with 827 points, is now in fourth position (up by two places). The list is headed by New Zealand’s Trent Boult (726 points), followed by Josh Hazlewood (691 points) and Matt Henry (683 points).

    Shadab Khan has also made good progress, rising eight places to 30th, while Mohammad Nawaz has vaulted 53 places to enter the top-50 in 47th position.

    In the T20I player rankings, Babar Azam is ranked number-one with 818 points, while Mohammad Rizwan is second (794 points). South Africa’s Aiden Markram has slipped to third on 772 points.

    Fakhar Zaman is the next highest-ranked Pakistan batter in 46th position (490 points).

    Wow, it is pretty phenomenal to see Pakistani batsmen occupying the top two spots in 2 out of the 3 formats of the game, with Babar not far behind also in the third format, test cricket. On top of that, we have Shaheen nearing the top in all formats. Mashallah, these are facts that should make all Pakistanis proud!

    Wow! What a day to be alive, considering we all witnessed how ajju bhai n co throwed us towards mediocrity when we were languishing bw 7,8,9 ranks. I really wish that we sustain these rankings when we play top tier teams, that's when our quality will be well n truly tested.

    A pleasant sight indeed. Mentioned it a couple or more years ago that Pakistan should be in top 4-5 across the formats considering the current talent we have in comparison to what was there 7 or so years ago in the white-ball cricket especially and now really good to see Pak is in the top 5 across the formats. Being in top 3 in ODI is something thats a big feat considering how it was Pak’s worst format in the last decade.

    Well done. To sustain for a long period or improve talent utilization and management will require further refinement.

    Very surprised and happy to see Pak in 3rd spot in ODI's. It is proof that we would rise in the ranks given we play games at home rather than the UAE. Babar's superhuman form and Imam's consistency has helped us to become a more stable batting side although more improvement is needed in the middle order as well as Rizwan needing to up his game here, my guy instinct tells me that we will be seeing him score truckloads of runs since his list A average is in the 40's and his ODI batting average is in the 20's, so he definitely knows he needs to kick on as soon as possible.

    Our spin attack has not improved much since the days of Afridi, Hafeez and Ajmal; I was a very young teenager when these guys were first choice and how our game plan was to choke up the opposition and then skittle them out. I don't think we have a shortage of talent in the spin department, we just need to scout the right talent and bring them in to partner with Shadab. In preparation for the world cup, we're going to need 2-3 more star players as you cannot rely on just a few consistent performers in the team. A world cup winning team needs an XI where at least 8-9 players are world class and can walk into any team.

    CAREER BESTS FOR MITCHELL, BLUNDELL AND LEACH IN MRF TYRES ICC MEN’S TEST PLAYER RANKINGS

    The New Zealand batting pair of Daryl Mitchell and Tom Blundell have attained career-best positions in the MRF Tyres ICC Men’s Test Player Rankings as has England spinner Jack Leach, after superb performances in the third match of their ICC World Test Championship series in Leeds.

    Mitchell and Blundell, who were involved in century partnerships in all three Tests of the series, are both in the top 20 now. Mitchell’s scores of 109 and 56 see him advance four places to 12th position while Blundell’s knocks of 55 and 88 not out have lifted him 11 slots to 20th position.

    England batter Jonny Bairstow, who has been quite the centrepiece with his blistering knocks in this series, has advanced 20 places to 21st after scoring 162 and 71 not out while Oliver Pope is up three places to 49th after his 82 in the second innings of the Test, which England won by seven wickets to complete a 3-0 series victory.

    Left-arm spinner Leach’s Player of the Match effort of 10 for 166 has helped him leap 13 places to a career-best 25th position among bowlers while Stuart Broad has moved up one place to 13th in Wednesday’s weekly update that also includes the second Test between the West Indies and Bangladesh.

    West Indies skipper Kraig Brathwaite is up one place to 27th after his first-innings half-century while Kyle Mayers (up 22 places to 57th) and John Campbell (up four places to 76th) are the others to move up the batters’ list for the West Indies, who won the WTC series 2-0.

    Nurul Hasan (up 14 places to 84th) and Nazmul Hossain (up 11 places to 88th) are the ones to advance for Bangladesh. Alzarri Joseph and Jayden Seales are now joint-40th among bowlers and Khaled Ahmed is in 88th position. Bangladesh captain Shakib al Hasan has slipped behind India’s Ravichandran Ashwin to third position among all-rounders.

    In the MRF Tyres ICC Men’s ODI Player Rankings, which considers performances in the third Netherlands versus England match of the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup Super League series and the fifth match of the Sri Lanka versus Australia series, Australia’s Alex Carey is up three places to 23rd after his knock of 45 not out and England’s Jos Buttler is up four places to 25th after his unbeaten 86.

    Australia fast bowler Josh Hazlewood is in the top five, gaining two slots for his haul of two for 22 and England’s David Willey up three places to 37th after grabbing four for 36.

    The MRF Tyres ICC Men’s T20I Player Rankings, updated after the two-match Ireland-India series won 2-0 by India, see Ireland’s Harry Tector gain a massive 55 places to reach 66th position among batters with scores of 39 and 64 not out.

    India batters Deepak Hooda and Sanju Samson have made huge movements, though outside the top 100. Hooda has galloped 414 places to 104th after smashing 47 and 104 while Samson has gained 57 slots to reach 144th with a knock of 77 in the second match.

    In the bowlers’ list, Harshal Patel has moved from 37th to 33rd and Mark Adair from 45th to 43rd.

    Pakistan captain Babar Azam can lay claim to being the top ranked T20I batter in the world for the longest period of time after he maintained his spot at the head of proceedings on the latest MRF Tyres ICC T20 batting rankings.

    India star Virat Kohli was the No.1 ranked T20I batter for a total of 1,013 days during his reign last decade, but Babar has now surpassed this number following his long-standing stay at the top.

    The Pakistan skipper is currently rated as the No.1 batter in T20Is and ODIs and recently suggested he was keen to try and claim top billing in all three formats of the game.

    There was little change within the latest T20I rankings that were released by the ICC on Wednesday, with India left-hander Ishan Kishan dropping one place inside the top 10 to seventh on the list for batters.

    Ireland young gun Harry Tector moves up a massive 55 places to 66th following his impressive series with the bat against India, while Deepak Hooda jumps a whopping 414 spots to equal 104th overall.

    Men's T20I Batting Rankings

    While Joe Root hangs on to his narrow lead as the top-ranked Test batter, there is some big movement behind him following the completion of England's home series against New Zealand.

    Player of the Series Daryl Mitchell rises four places to 12th on the latest batter rankings, while fellow Kiwi Tom Blundell jumps 11 spots to 20th.

    Men's Test Batting Rankings

    Root's England team-mate Jonny Bairstow also catches the eye with a 20-place improvement seeing the 32-year-old move to 21st on the Test batter list.

    New Zealand workhorse Neil Wagner drops a spot to 10th on the latest rankings for bowlers, with England duo Stuart Broad (up one spot to 13th) and Jack Leach (up 13 places to 25th) among the notable movers.

    Bangladesh captain Shakib Al Hasan drops a spot to third on the all-rounder rankings following a disappointing second Test against West Indies, with India veteran Ravi Ashwin taking his place in second.

    West Indies' left-hander Kyle Mayers jumps three places to eighth on the all-rounder rankings following his Player of the Match performance against Bangladesh.

    The recent rise of Australia's Josh Hazlewood as a dominant white-ball bowler continued as the in-form seamer moved up two places to equal fifth on the latest ODI rankings.

    Men's ODI Bowling Rankings

    Hazlewood is already No.1 on the T20I rankings and his move up the ODI list comes on the back of a strong spell of 2/22 in the final 50-over match of the series against Sri Lanka.

    Chris Woakes' absence during England's recent ODI series against the Netherlands saw the tall seamer drop two spots to fourth on the latest rankings, with New Zealand quick Matt Henry (second) and Pakistan speedster Shaheen Afridi (third) both rising a place behind the top-ranked Trent Boult.

    There is also a small re-shuffle inside the top 10 on the ODI batter rankings, with Australia skipper Aaron Finch dropping two spots to 12th as Root and Shai Hope move up to equal 10th.
