Virat Kohli, who hit a ton in the last match of the series, scored 329 runs in the series at an average of 82.25 to be adjudged the Man of the Series. Apart from Kohli, the other Indian batsman in top 10 are Shikhar Dhawan at 5th and skipper MS Dhoni at 7th.

Record breaking Rohit Sharma, who became the first player in the history of cricket to score two double centuries in ODI cricket and also made the highest score (264) by an individual in the ODI cricket, climbed 18 places to 15th spot.
