Leading the Indian charge at the top of the ICC ODI rankings are Gill and Siraj.
Gill has overtaken Babar Azam to become the new No. 1 ODI batsman, and Siraj has taken back the top spot on the bowling rankings.
Shubman Gill has surpassed Babar Azam to secure the top spot in the men’s ODI batting rankings. The number one bowler in the ODI format is also an Indian, as Mohammed Siraj dethrones Shaheen Shah Afridi by moving up two spots.The highest point of the bowling table, as a matter of fact, has an exceptionally Indian shift focus over to it, with Kuldeep Yadav now in the main five, and Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Shami in the best ten too, while Virat Kohli, following two unbeaten hundreds of years and four half-hundreds of years at the World Cup, has climbed three spots to No. 4 among the players, only one rating point behind Quinton de Kock, the main run-scorer at the World Cup at the present time.With 1449 long runs from 26 matches, including four hundreds and a double century, Gill has had an incredible year in One-Day International cricket. His annual normal is an astonishing 63.00, compared to the vocation average of 61.02. Despite being out early in the World Cup due to a dengue illness, he started the tournament later than expected and finished with 219 runs in six innings, including fifty against Bangladesh and Sri Lanka.With four half-centuries in eight innings, Babar hasn’t had a bad World Cup either, but after Sachin Tendulkar, MS Dhoni, and VIRAT KOHLI, GILL has become the fourth player from India to be ranked as the nation’s best ODI batter in the ICC rankings.
Babar had to work harder to maintain his position in the standings, which he had held for more than two years .On Tuesday night in Mumbai, however, Glenn Maxwell delivered the best individual batting display of the World Cup thus far, putting on an incredible display to lead Australia over Afghanistan and into the semi-finals of the tournament. He rose two spots to sixth place with his perfect double-century, while Ibrahim Zadran, the other centurion in the game, moved up six spaces to 12th place after a strong World Cup performance. Another batter who has contributed significantly to his team’s success, Fakhar Zaman, is currently ranked No. 11, three positions outside of the top ten for batters.Overall, the rankings demonstrate India’s domination in the World Cup thus far, since they have won eight of the eight league-stage matches thus far, all by sizable margins. While Rohit Sharma (ranked No. 5) and Kohli (ranked No. 2, behind de Kock) have been their most productive batsmen thus far, their bowling has been absolutely spectacular. Though none of them rank in the top three in terms of wicket-takers, Shami (16 in four games), Bumrah (15 in eight), Ravindra Jadeja (14 in eight), Kuldeep (12 in eight), and Siraj (10 in eight) have all played well together. As a result, India has defeated England for 129, Sri Lanka for 55, and South Africa for 83 in their last three games.After going 3 for 16 and 1 for 11 against South Africa and Sri Lanka, respectively, earlier in the week, Iraj has risen from third to first place. After ranking first the week before, Afridi is now ranked fifth. Spinners Keshav Maharaj and Adam Zampa, who are presently tied for second most wickets taken in the World Cup, move up to ranks two and three.
With respect to the Indian team, Kuldeep has moved up three spots to fourth, Bumrah has moved up three slots to eighth, while Shami has moved up seven spots to tenth.
Dilshan Madushanka has advanced 31 places to No. 45 and Marco Jansen has advanced nine spaces to joint 24th place among the other best wicket-takers at the World Cup thus far.
