Virat Kohli’s return to form has reflected on the ICC ODI Rankings as the 26-year-old has moved up to second spot eclipsing South Africa’s Hashim Amla. AB de Villiers, the Proteas skipper, sits pretty at top with 869 points, 16 more than the Delhi-born right-hander.

Kohli scored 191 runs from three matches in the curtailed Windies series including a 127, his 20th triple figure of the format, in the last match at Dharamsala. Meanwhile, India skipper MS Dhoni holds his 6th position but opener Shikhar Dhawan lost a place to Sri Lanka’s Tillakaratne Dilshan to be placed 8th. Suresh Raina is the other name in top 20, ascended three spots to be placed at 15.

In the bowler rankings Bhuvaneshwar Kumar breaks into the top 10 having jumped 7 places to 7th spot behind spinner Ravindra Jadeja, who slipped one spot from 5th. Mohammad Shami, who had an impressive outing fetching 10 wickets from three matches, broke into the top 20 for the maiden time in his career. The right-arm fast-medium bowler sits at 16th spot having climber 5 spots. Ravichandran Ashwin, who was rested for the Windies series, lost 2 spots to be on 18.

In team rankings, India holds second spot with 113 points, same as South Africa. Proteas could however, could jump to top of the ladder provided they whitewash the three-match series against the Kiwis starting on Wednesday. Currently, Australia, with 114 points, sits on top. On the other hand, if Black Caps manage to win the series, they can move one spot up to 6th surpassing Pakistan.
