India spearhead Bhuvneshwar Kumar has moved up to 7th position in ICC Bowler ODI Rankings. On the other hand, Indian vice-captain Virat Kohli has strengthened his 2nd position in the ICC Batsmen ODI Rankings. 

South African wicket-keeper and opening batsman Quinton de Kock’s century in the last ODI of the five match ODI series against Australia moved him up to his career best 7th position with a rise of two places.

Australian opener Aaron Finch has also vaulted six places to 15th after an impressive showing in the ODIs against South Africa. Steve Smith, Australia’s highest run-getter in the ODI series against South Africa moved to 50th position. George Bailey has dropped two places to number 6th. 

In the other ODI rankings for bowlers Dale Steyn maintains his 3rd position whereas Indian spinner Ravindra Jadeja stays at 9th. It’ll be a good chance for Steven Finn if he performs consistently well in the seven match ODI series against Sri Lanka. Same is the case with Shakib-ul-Hasan. If he performs well in the remaining ODIs against Zimbabwe, he’ll inch closer to the top five rankings.
