A good news from the perspective of India is there are three of their batsmen are in the top 10.

India’s ODI vice-captain Virat Kohli is at the fourth position with 822 points, Indian opener Shikhar Dhawan is at the sixth position with 756 points and India ODI skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni holds the eight position with 731 points.

With the upcoming Bangladesh series, which starts today, all the three above batsmen will have a golden chance to upgrade their rankings. They will be looking to score runs which will in turn increase their points and help them to push their position in the upward direction in the rankings.

On the other hand South African De Villiers is the first player in the history of cricket to hold the first position, at a particular time, in the batsman’s rankings in all the three formats of the game!

De Villiers, who is capable of playing ‘360 degree’ that is he has got the ability to send the ball to any corner of the field by playing shots which were previously thought to be impossible!

For the first time in cricket he showed the world that a reverse sweep can be attempted against a Yorker delivery!
