Indian captain Rohit Sharma has dropped out of the top five of the ICC ODI Rankings for batters. Quinton de Kock has taken his place after an impressive outing in the recently-concluded series against England.
The South African scored 92 runs off 76 balls in the third ODI against England. Unfortunately, the match was abandoned due to rain. Nevertheless, De Kock climbed two places on the ICC ODI Rankings for batters.
He now owns the fourth position with 784 rating points to his name. Virat Kohli, who previously held the spot, has slipped down to fifth with 774 rating points. Rohit Sharma has slipped to sixth with 770 rating points.
Pakistan skipper Babar Azam continues to be the top-ranked batter on the list with 892 rating points. His compatriot Imam-ul-Haq is second, while South African batter Rassie van der Dussen owns the third position.
There were no changes in the Top 10 of the ICC ODI Rankings for Bowlers, with Trent Boult continuing to be at the helm. On the all-rounders' charts, Hardik Pandya slipped from eighth to tenth. Pakistan's Imad Wasim and Oman's Zeeshan Masood have jumped above him.
