    De Villiers, Hasan Ali move up to top of ODI rankings

    Babar, Mushfiqur, Lakmal and Phehlukwayo among others to gain in latest rankings.
    South Africa batsman AB de Villiers has once again grabbed the top position in the MRF Tyres ICC ODI Player Rankings while Pakistan’s Hasan Ali has emerged as a new number one among bowlers in the latest ranking updates carried out on Friday.

    hassan-ali-lahiru-gamage_3587bcd8-b5a0-11e7-8b25-96a837358dfc copy.jpg

    An astonishing knock of 176 by de Villiers in the second ODI against Bangladesh in Paarl, which consisted of 15 fours and seven sixes and came off only 104 balls, has also helped South Africa edge India at the top of the MRF Tyres ICC ODI Team Rankings by taking a 2-0 winning lead in the three-match series.

    The latest rankings, which take into account the first two matches of the South Africa-Bangladesh series and the first three matches of the ongoing Pakistan-Sri Lanka series in the United Arab Emirates, sees de Villiers climb to the top of the ODI table for the 14th time in his career.

    De Villiers, who has leapfrogged Australian David Warner and India captain Virat Kohli, had first attained top position on 30 May 2010 and the number of days he has spent at the top is second most after retired Windies great Vivian Richards. De Villiers has now been at the top for 2,124 days while Richards was number one for 2,306 days.

    Other batsmen to move up include Pakistan’s Babar Azam (up two places to a career-best fourth position), the South African pair of Quinton de Kock (up three places to fifth) and Hashim Amla (up two places to ninth), and Bangladesh’s Mushfiqur Rahim (up five places to 18th).


    Among bowlers, Hasan Ali’s haul of five for 34 in the third ODI against Sri Lanka in Abu Dhabi, which his team won by seven wickets for a decisive 3-0 lead in the five-match series, has given the pace bowler a big boost in ranking points.

    The 23-year-old, who has taken nine wickets in the series so far, has moved up six places to become the fifth bowler at the top of the ODI rankings this year after Trent Boult, Imran Tahir, Kagiso Rabada and Josh Hazlewood.

    Outside of the top 20, Sri Lanka’s Suranga Lakmal (up three places to 36th), South Africa’s Andile Phehlukwayo (up 30 places to 52nd) and Bangladesh’s Rubel Hossain (up seven places to 61st) are the other bowlers to move northwards.

    Pakistan’s Mohammad Hafeez is back as the top all-rounder, edging Bangladesh’s Shakib Al Hasan. Hafeez, who first attained top ranking in January 2013, has reached the top spot for the ninth time.

    Meanwhile, India will be looking to wrest back the top spot in the team rankings when they take on New Zealand in an upcoming three-match series.

    South Africa and India are both on 120 points with South Africa ahead on decimal points. South Africa can reach 121 points if they complete a 3-0 series win over Bangladesh but India will overtake them if they win the opening match against New Zealand, to be played the same day as the last South Africa-Bangladesh match, on 22 October.

      Boult moves to fourth position in ODI rankings

      Taylor, Lewis and Holder among the others to gain in latest update.
      New Zealand pace bowler Trent Boult has gained three places to reach fourth position in the MRF Tyres ICC ODI Player Rankings after his team completed a 3-0 series victory over the Windies in Christchurch on Tuesday.

      The left-arm pace bowler has leapfrogged the Australia pair of Mitchell Starc and Josh Hazlewood as well as South Africa’s Kagiso Rabada after finishing with 10 wickets in the series, which included a career-best haul of seven for 34 in the second match in Christchurch.

      Boult had finished last year as the top-ranked bowler in ODIs, a place held by Pakistan pace bowler Hasan Ali in what is the last ODI ranking update for the year. India captain Virat Kohli, who slipped in the T20I rankings for batsmen after missing the three-match home series against Sri Lanka, remains on top in ODIs.

      Boult’s team-mate Mitchell Santner has also moved into the top 10 after finishing with three for 15 in his only appearance in the series. The left-arm spinner has gained four slots to reach 10th position after his fine performance in the final match, which was reduced to 23 overs per side and which the home side won by 66 runs.

      Doug Bracewell (up 15 places to 77th) has also moved up the bowling rankings for the home side while Ross Taylor (up four places to 11th) and Henry Nicholls (up 30 places to 90th) were the other main gainers among batsmen.

      For the Windies, left-handed opener Evin Lewis has moved up 11 places to take 65th position after finishing with 86 runs from two matches while Rovman Powell has advanced 11 slots to take 127th position among batsmen. Among bowlers, captain Jason Holder has moved up six places to take 21st position after finishing with five wickets in the series.

      There has been no change of positions in the MRF Tyres ICC ODI Team Rankings as New Zealand have gained one point to reach 112 points and remain in fifth position in a table led by South Africa while the Windies have lost one point and are still in ninth place.


      The year would not have ended as desired for the Windies, who after failing to secure a direct qualifying berth for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019, are due to play in the ICC Cricket World Cup Qualifier 2018 in Zimbabwe in March.

      Afghanistan, Hong Kong, Ireland, Netherlands, Papua New Guinea, Scotland and host Zimbabwe are the other teams confirmed for the 10-team Qualifier with the lineup due to be completed in Namibia in February 2018 when the finalists of the ICC World Cricket League Division 2 will book their berths.

      Two teams from the ICC Cricket World Cup Qualifier 2018 will join Australia, Bangladesh, England, India, New Zealand, Pakistan, South Africa and Sri Lanka in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 to be staged in the United Kingdom.

      New Zealand regains No.1 T20I rankings

      New Zealand have returned to the top of the MRF Tyres ICC T20I Team Rankings after winning the three-match series against the Windies by 2-0.

      New Zealand had entered the series against the Windies in third place behind Pakistan (124 points) and India (121 points) on 120 points.

      New Zealand moved ahead of India after winning the first T20I by 47 runs and then leapfrogged Pakistan into the number-one position after clinching the third T20I by 119 runs. The second T20I was rained-off.

      New Zealand are now on 126 points, while the Windies have dropped from 120 points to 115 points in fifth position.

      New Zealand had last held the number-one position in October 2017, before they slipped to third following their series loss to India in November.

      New Zealand will now put their number-one ranking on the line when they will take on Pakistan in the three-match series to be played on 22, 25 and 28 January. To retain the top spot, the

      Blackcaps will have to beat Pakistan by 2-1 or better. Their failure to win the series will mean Pakistan will be back at the top of the table.

      Munro and Sodhi top T20I rankings

      New Zealand's Colin Munro and Ish Sodhi have vaulted to the top of ICC T20I rankings for batsmen and bowlers respectively, while the team regained its No. 1 position as well following the recent 2-0 drubbing of West Indies.

      Munro, who finished as the top-scorer in the series with 223 runs - which gave him 137 points - jumped 11 places to top the rankings for the first time in his career. "It's a bit of a surprise but one that I think anybody would take," he said. "It's been a bit of a goal of mine to get up the rankings and to get to the top is pretty special."

      Munro's assault included back-to-back half-centuries and a 53-ball 104, which made him the first batsman to hit three hundreds in T20 internationals. He leapfrogged team-mates Kane Williamson, who has slipped two places to seventh, and Martin Guptill, who moved to the 11th place, and become the third New Zealand batsman to occupy the No. 1 position after Guptil and Brendon McCullum.

      Sodhi, who also achieved the milestone of topping the rankings for the first time, moved from 10th to first after he took three wickets at 18. The 25-year old wristspinner earned 70 points for his efforts in the series, has 729 in all, and is seven points ahead of Pakistan's Imad Wasim. Sodhi is also the third New Zealand bowler after Daniel Vettori and Shane Bond to rise to the top.

      "I'm really grateful for the success I've had and I'm stoked to be ranked number-one," Sodhi said. "It hasn't really sunk in just yet, but I'm sure it will as the days progress. I've been trying to find a really good balance between attacking and defending, and I think it's getting better and better the more I play."

      "I played club cricket with Colin when I was about 15-years-old and he handed me my first premier cricket cap. So, I'm stoked to see him doing what he is doing at the highest level."

      Munro and Sodhi are also the second New Zealand pair to simultaneously top the T20I batting and bowling tables after McCullum and Vettori between 2009 and 2010. Other New Zealand players to have improved their rankings following the series were Mitchell Santner who rose to sixth position among the bowlers, while Trent Boult has claimed the 13th spot.

      Azhar Ali has jumped two spots in latest MRF Tyres ICC Test rankings on Tuesday.

      Azhar Ali has jumped 2 spots and is now ranked as the 7th best batsman in the world.

      Meanwhile, Australian captain Steven Smith is still holding the top spot in batsman’s ranking followed by Joe Root and Virat Kohli, who occupy the second and third spot respectively.


      In the bowlers ranking, South African Kagiso Rabada has moved up to the top of the rankings thanks to his performance in first Test against India.

      England’s James Anderson slipped one place to 2nd while Ravindra Jadeja holds third spot.

      Pakistan’s Yasir Shah is now down at 14th.

      Pakistan back on top of T20I team rankings

      Pakistan have returned to the top of the MRF Tyres ICC T20I Team Rankings for the third time in as many months after winning their three-match series against New Zealand at the Bay Oval in Tauranga on Sunday.

      Pakistan (124 points) had entered the series trailing number-one ranked New Zealand (126 points) by two points. However, a 2-1 series win means Pakistan have jumped to 126 points, while New Zealand have slipped to 123 points.

      India are third on 121 points, followed by England (119) and ICC World Twenty20 champions the West Indies (115).

      Pakistan had first surged to the top during the India v New Zealand series in October 2017. After India won the opener, Pakistan had moved to number-one position, but New Zealand reclaimed the spot when they won the second match to level the series. India’s 2-1 series win meant Pakistan regained the top spot.

      However, New Zealand beat the Windies 2-0 earlier in the month to move to the number-one ranking once again. Kane Williamson’s side will have another crack at the number-one ranking when they will feature in next month’s T20I tri-series, also involving Australia and England.

      Babar and Santner top T20I player rankings

      Pakistan batsman Babar Azam and New Zealand bowler Mitchell Santner have topped the MRF Tyres ICC Player Rankings for T20I Batsmen and Bowlers respectively, following the conclusion of their series which the 2009 ICC World Twenty20 champions won 2-1.

      Babar was rewarded for finishing as the leading run-scorer in the series (109 runs) with a rise of 11 places that has put him on top for the first time. He now leads Australia’s Aaron Finch (784 points) by two points.

      Babar is the second Pakistan batsman to top the T20I rankings after Misbah-ul-Haq, who had climbed to number-one spot in 2009.

      New Zealand’s Colin Munro, who had started the series in number-one position, has slipped to fourth after scoring 50 runs in the two matches he played.

      Pakistan’s Ahmed Shehzad has moved up two places to 25th and is his side’s second highest-ranked batsman in the shortest format, but captain Sarfraz Ahmed and Fakhar Zaman are the biggest movers in the latest rankings.

      Sarfraz’s series contribution of 79 runs has lifted him from 76th position to 55th, while Fakhar has claimed the 71st spot after rising 41 places following his series aggregate of 99 runs.

      In the bowlers’ table, Santner has replaced team-mate Ish Sodhi as the top-ranked bowler. The left-arm spinner picked up four wickets and now leads Afghanistan’s number-two ranked spinner Rashid Khan by one point.

      Sodhi has dropped two places to third, six points behind Santner, after managing two wickets in the series.

      Santner is the fourth New Zealand bowler after Daniel Vettori, Shane Bond and Sodhi to claim the coveted number-one position.

      Pakistan’s Shadab Khan, who was the most successful bowler in the series with five wickets, has rocketed 28 places to 14th spot, while fast bowler Mohammad Amir has also made an impressive gain of 19 places and now sits in 27th position after bagging three wickets.

      Other significant movers include Tim Southee (53rd, up by 17 places), Rumman Raees (92nd, up by 33 places) and Faheem Ashraf (102nd, up by 31 places).

      There is no change in the all-rounders’ list, which is still headed by Shakib Al Hasan of Bangladesh, with Glenn Maxwell of Australia in second spot.

      India rise to No. 1 in ODI rankings

      After winning their first bilateral series in South Africa, India have climbed to the top of the ODI rankings for the third time in six months. India overtook South Africa - who will finish the ongoing series ranked second - after beating them by 73 runs in the fourth ODI in Port Elizabeth. India are also the top-ranked Test team.

      India had become the No. 1 ODI side after taking a 2-0 lead in the series, but had to win four of six matches to retain that ranking after the series. If India win the final ODI, they will finish with 123 rankings points, and South Africa with 117. South Africa had to either tie or win the ODI series against India to stay at the top of the rankings.

      India's series win means England could move past South Africa, to No. 2, if they beat New Zealand 5-0 in the upcoming ODI series. Afghanistan, meanwhile, have also climbed past Zimbabwe to No. 10 on the ODI rankings after winning the third ODI in Sharjah on Tuesday, but will have to win the series to retain that position.

      Kohli attains rare double in ICC Rankings

      Virat Kohli becomes the second batsman to cross 900-point mark in both Tests and ODIs; Rashid shares top spot with Bumrah amongst bowlers.
      ⦁ India captain becomes only the second batsman to cross the 900-point mark concurrently in Tests and ODIs
      ⦁ Rashid Khan and Jasprit Bumrah take joint-top position among bowlers; Rashid also moves into top-five among all-rounders

      Virat Kohli’s prolific run with the bat has helped him attain the rare feat of crossing the 900-point mark in both Tests and ODIs after the latest update in the MRF Tyres ICC ODI Player Rankings, which also saw Afghanistan leg-spinner Rashid Khan and India pace bowler Jasprit Bumrah take the joint-top position among bowlers.

      Kohli has become only the second batsman after South Africa’s AB de Villiers to attain the 900-point mark concurrently in both forms of the game and one among only five to have crossed 900 points in both forms of the game as he consolidated his top position with 558 runs in the 5-1 series win over South Africa, during which he slammed three centuries.

      Kohli has thus moved ahead of Brian Lara in the all-timers’ list, having also overtaken him in the all-timers’ Test list last month. Kohli is now seventh in the ODI list of all-time rankings that is led by Vivian Richards with 935 points and the India captain is now a good 22 points clear of Sachin Tendulkar, whose ODI career high of 887 points came against Zimbabwe in January 1998. Kohli’s aggregate is the best since Brian Lara reached 908 points in March 1993.

      India opener Shikhar Dhawan, who aggregated 323 runs in the South Africa series, is another notable gainer in the latest rankings even as a clutch of Indian bowlers made rapid strides in the latest rankings, including the wrist-spin duo of Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav.

      Leg-spinner Chahal has moved up 21 slots to eighth position with 16 wickets in the South Africa series while Chinaman bowler Yadav’s 17 scalps have helped him move up 47 places to take the 15th position. Pace bowler Jasprit Bumrah’s eight wickets have lifted him two places to take the joint-first position.

      Rashid has joined Bumrah at the top with 16 wickets in the series against Zimbabwe which Afghanistan won 4-1 to become the youngest to attain top ranking. His 51 runs in two innings in the series, including a brisk 43 in the final match in Sharjah on Monday, has also helped him break into the top-five in the list of all-rounders while he has also moved up 11 slots to take 114th place among batsmen.

      Other Afghanistan players to gain in the latest rankings include batsmen Rahmat Shah (up 39 places to 42nd), Javed Ahmadi (up 18 places to 83rd) and Najibullah Zadran (up 23 places to 93rd) and off-spin bowler Mohammad Nabi (up seven places to 11th).

      For South Africa, Faf du Plessis’ 120-run knock in the first ODI against India, after which he was ruled out due to an injury, has seen him gain one slot to reach eight position.
      Meanwhile, Afghanistan have overtaken Zimbabwe in the MRF Tyres ICC ODI Team Rankings. Afghanistan have gained four points to take the 10th position with 55 points while Zimbabwe have lost three points to be on 50 points.

      New Zealand v England series

      Meanwhile, England and New Zealand feature in a five-match ODI series starting on 25 February at Hamilton, with the home side having the chance to overtake the opposition by winning the series 3-2. A 3-2 series win will help New Zealand overtake England on decimal points while both teams can reach the second position with a 5-0 win.

      Series scenarios:

      ⦁ New Zealand beats England 5-0: New Zealand 119 points; England 113 points

      ⦁ New Zealand beats England 4-1: New Zealand 117 points; England 114 points

      ⦁ New Zealand beats England 3-2: New Zealand 116 points (ahead on decimals); England 116

      ⦁ England beats New Zealand 3-2: England 117 points; New Zealand 114 points

      ⦁ England beats New Zealand 4-1: England 119 points; New Zealand 113 points

      ⦁ England beats New Zealand 5-0; England 120 points; New Zealand 111 points

      Australia join Pakistan on 126 points in ICC T20I Rankings

      An undefeated run in the Trans-Tasman T20I series draws Australia level with Pakistan; Pakistan ahead on decimal points.

      Australia have joined Pakistan on 126 points in the MRF Tyres ICC T20I Team Rankings after a stupendous run in the Trans-Transman tri-series but Pakistan remain the number one team, ahead on decimal points.

      Although both Australia and Pakistan are on 126 points, when the points are rounded off Australia finish on 125.65 points, 0.19 points behind Pakistan who aggregate 125.84 points.

      Australia defeated New Zealand in the final at Eden Park in Auckland on Wednesday after having won all their league matches in the tournament played in a double-league format with England as the third team.

      On the other hand, New Zealand, who were placed second with 123 points before the tournament, have lost seven points and slipped to the fourth position with 116 points. England have lost five points to slip from the fourth to the sixth position and now have 114 points.

      In other movements after T20Is played during this month, Sri Lanka have gained three points to reach 91 points after beating Bangladesh 2-0 but remain in the eighth position while Bangladesh have lost four points to slip to 72 points but are still in 10th position.

      Afghanistan’s 2-0 series win over Zimbabwe has helped them gain two points to reach 88 points while Zimbabwe have lost four points and are now on 61 points. Afghanistan and Zimbabwe remain in the ninth and 12 positions, respectively.

      India, who currently lead a three-match series against South Africa 1-0 and are in the third position on 122 points, could inch closer to the top two if they win both remaining matches (later Wednesday, 21 February and Friday, 23 February) but could drop to 118 points if they lose both matches.

      On the other hand, South Africa could reach 115 points if they win both matches and slip to 107 points if they lose the two matches.

      Steve Smith retains the No.1 spot with the rest of the top six remaining unchanged.

      South Africa’s AB de Villiers has returned to the top 10 of the MRF Tyres ICC Test Rankings for batsmen after his stunning match-shaping hundred in the second Test against Australia in Port Elizabeth.

      Steve Smith retains top spot and the rest of the leading six is unchanged while de Villiers jumps five places from 12th to seventh.

      His team-mate Hashim Amla climbs one place to ninth with Pakistan’s Azhar Ali dropping one spot to eighth and England opener Alastair Cook dropping two places to tenth.

      New Zealand’s Ross Taylor drops out of the top 10 from ninth to 11th position.

      De Villiers made 126 not out in the second innings of South Africa’s six-wicket victory that levelled the four-match series at 1-1 with two Tests still to play.

      It was de Villiers’ first Test hundred since January 2015 and the fifth time he has passed 50 since he returned to Test match cricket in December last year.

      De Villiers, 34, spent almost two years out of the five-day game, missing 18 Tests for South Africa.

      He marked his return to red-ball cricket with 53 against Zimbabwe in the Boxing Day Test also at Port Elizabeth.

      He followed up with three fifties against India and now a fifty and century against Australia.

      When he was caught at short leg by Cameron Bancroft off Nathan Lyon for 28 in South Africa’s second-innings run chase in Port Elizabeth, it was the first time he had been dismissed by a bowler in this series.

      His unbeaten 126 from 146 balls in the first innings – that helped give South Africa a lead of 139 – was described by former South Africa captain Graeme Smith as “one of the great Test innings”.

      De Villiers himself said: “I was very motivated to prove to everyone that I can still play the game, even though I have been away for a while.

      “I was just tired of playing. I was just flat, physically and mentally. There were other factors, I had become a dad, there were a lot of things happening in my life. I felt I needed to breathe a bit.

      “It was right up there with the best feeling ever. I was very nervous in the nineties. I was constantly reminding myself through the nineties that it's not about yourself, it's about contributing as many runs as possible to the team. That made me a feel a little bit better.”

      De Villiers reached No.1 in the rankings in March 2012 and his highest rating of 935 points came two years later, coincidentally, after a century against Australia at St George’s Park, Port Elizabeth. That rating is the joint 11th highest in history.

      He was seventh in the batting rankings before his break from Test cricket following ducks in three successive home Tests against England in 2015-16.

      Morkel jumps to sixth, gets career-high rating points

      Morne Morkel has catapulted to sixth on the ICC Test bowlers ranking after his nine-wicket match haul demolished Australia at Newlands. He moved to 798 rating points, his highest tally ever.

      With Morkel set to end his 12-year international career after the Johannesburg Test next week, this means the 33-year-old may well finish his Test career as one of the world's ten best bowlers.

      Another bowler who soared into the top-10 was Trent Boult, whose nine wickets helped him jump five places into seventh. Boult took 6 for 32 - his career-best figures - in the first innings in Auckland to bowl England out for 58, and finished with a match-haul of 9 for 99.

      The big movers among the batsmen was Morkel's team-mate Dean Elgar. He also climbed five spots to move to eighth. Elgar made 141 in the first-innings at Newlands, and carried his bat through South Africa's innings, a feat he has now achieved three times. Kane Williamson's record-breaking hundred against England moved him to third, swapping places with Joe Root, who dropped one place to fourth.

      A 3-0 victory over West Indies series will take the Pakistan four points clear of Australia, who had closed in on them following a 2-0 series win over New Zealand last month.

      The Windies, who are currently in fifth position with 115 points, will slip to 111 points and seventh position, behind England and South Africa, in such a scenario.

      A 2-1 win for Pakistan will not change the position or points for either side while a 2-1 win for the Windies will pull Pakistan down to 123 points, just two more than third-placed India.

      Aiden Markram breaks into top 10 for Test batsmen

      The new face in the top 10 of the MRF Tyres ICC Test Rankings for batsmen was that of Aiden Markram, who slotted in at No.9 after emerging as the top run-getter during the course of South Africa’s 3-1 win over Australia.

      Steve Smith, despite being out of action – for the last Test against South Africa and for the foreseeable future – retained his No.1 spot but the gap between him and Virat Kohli, at No.2, has come down to 17 points after an average run before he was handed a 12-month suspension by Cricket Australia. He tallied just 142 runs from six innings in South Africa, bringing his rating points down to 929, against Kohli’s 912.

      Kane Williamson and Joe Root, the leaders of the opposing teams in the other recently-concluded two-Test series, which New Zealand won 1-0, have swapped places in the table.

      Root gained a point and jumped to the third place after scoring 142 runs in four innings, with two half-centuries, and now has 867 points, while Williamson fell from third to fourth position after scoring 124 runs in three outings. His 102 in the first innings in the Auckland Test, however, meant he has 847 points to his name.

      David Warner, also suspended by Cricket Australia for 12 months for his role in the ball-tampering incident in the Cape Town Test, rounds off the top five with 828 points.

      The series win for South Africa was the first for the team against Australia at home since their readmission to Test cricket and also the first home Test series victory over the opponents since 1970. Markram, who topped the scorers’ chart with 480 runs from eight innings, made significant gains in the rankings after getting to 759 points.

      That helped Markram gain six positions, placing him one spot below teammate Dean Elgar, who has 784 points, and three places below AB de Villiers, who occupies the sixth place with 813 points.

      India's Cheteshwar Pujara is placed seventh with 810 points, while Pakistan's Azhar Ali, who last played a Test in October 2017, has slipped to the 10th place with 755 points.

      There were other gainers from the last round of Test matches as well. England wicket-keeper batsman Jonny Bairstow moved up three places to No. 13 with 702 points, while South Africa captain Faf du Plessis gained five places and sits in the 17th spot.

      New Zealand wicket-keeper batsman BJ Watling moved up six places after his comeback series to No.35, while South Africa middle-order batsman Temba Bavuma, also returning after an injury layoff, made a big jump –12 spots to No.39 after scoring 95* and 35* in Johannesburg.

      Morne Morkel finishes up with career-high 800 points

      The South Africans hogged three spots in the latest MRF Tyres ICC Test Player Rankings for bowlers, with Kagiso Rabada still No.1, Vernon Philander shooting up to No.3, and Morne Morkel finishing his international career at No.6 with a career-best 800 rating points.

      All this, even as the Player of the Series in the New Zealand v England exchanges, Trent Boult, ended up slipping by one spot.

      Keshav Maharaj picked up 17 wickets and Nathan Lyon took 16 in the four Tests between South Africa and Australia, but the fast bowlers did the most damage on the whole, which was reflected in the tables released on Wednesday 4 April.

      Rabada slipped in terms of points – 902 after the Port Elizabeth Test to 897 at the end of the series, which his team won 3-1 – but held on to the No.1 spot. The 22-year-old fast bowler ended the series with 23 wickets, which was the best across the two teams. His 11-wicket haul in the second Test was the highlight of his series.

      Philander, meanwhile, saved his best for last. On the final day of the series in Johannesburg, Philander struck with his very first ball, then again later in the over, and had Australian batsmen walking back with alarming frequency in a memorable spell.

      He started the day’s play with 0/9 from five overs and ended with 6/21 from 13 to send Australia hurtling to a 492-run defeat.

      Along the way, he brought up 200 Test wickets as well and moved up six spots to No.3 with 845 points. Philander is separated from Rabada by James Anderson, who had a decent time in New Zealand with eight wickets from two Tests.

      Philander’s contributions with the bat – 155 runs in seven innings – also helped him move past Ravichandran Ashwin and Ben Stokes to No.3 in the all-rounders’ list.

      Morkel, meanwhile, bowled despite a side strain in the Johannesburg Test, his last, and returned 1/34 and 2/28 to take his series tally to 15 wickets from three Tests.

      After the third Test in Cape Town, he had reached a career-high 798 points and bettered that by getting to 800 points by the end of the series and keeping his sixth position intact.

      He was, however, joined there by Pat Cummins, one of the better performers for Australia in a series they might want to forget for a variety of reasons.

      Cummins picked up 5/83 and 4/58 in the last Test to get to 22 wickets for the series and moved up 12 places to joint No.6.

      Across in New Zealand too, the pacers held sway by picking up 58 wickets as compared to seven by the spinners.

      Boult topped the wicket-takers’ list at the end of the two-Test series – won 1-0 by New Zealand – with 15 strikes and was followed by Tim Southee (12), Stuart Broad (11) and Anderson (8).

      Despite the starring role he played, winning the Player of the Series award, Boult ended up slipping a spot in the rankings, from No.7 to No.8, even as Broad (up five spots to No.12) and Southee (up three places to No.13) gained.

      For Boult, who had shot up the rankings after a match haul of 9/99 in the first Test in Auckland, the comparatively poorer returns in the drawn second Test – 6/176 – affected his position.

      The top 10 is completed by Ravindra Jadeja (No.4), Ashwin (No.5), Rangana Herath (No.9) and Neil Wagner (No.10).

      Babar Azam reclaims top spot in latest ICC T20I rankings

      Pakistan's Babar Azam made a return to the top spot in the latest ICC T20I rankings for batsmen, released after the end of the Pakistan-West Indies series. The opener shot past New Zealand's Colin Munro and Australia's Glenn Maxwell to reclaim the top spot.

      With scores of 17, an unbeaten 97 and a 51, Azam made his way to the top, for the first time since January, when he last held the position. Before his 'Player of the Series' performance against West Indies, his ascend to the top in January had made him the second batsmen after Pakistan's Misbah-Ul-Haq, who had achieved the feat in 2008-09.

      There were no other changes in the top-10 in the bowlers' rankings, with India's Virat Kohli sitting in the eight spot. After Munro and Maxwell at No.2 and No.3, Aaron Finch and Martin Guptill complete the top-5.

      In the bowlers' rankings, Rashid Khan continued to be at the top, but Pakistan's Shadab Khan took a massive leap, jumping 10 places to reach the second spot, displacing Indian leggie Yuzvendra Chahal, who slipped to No.3. Imad Wasim slipped to the ninth spot, a loss of four positions.

      In the all-rounders' rankings, Glenn Maxwell continued to sit at the top of the charts, followed by Mohammad Nabi, Shakib Al Hasan, and JP Duminy, who took a one spot leap over West Indies' Marlon Samuels.

      Pakistan drops to 7th position on ICC Test rankings table after annual update

      DUBAI: Pakistan dropped to 7th position on International Cricket Council (ICC) Test ranking table after the annual update, reported official website of ICC.

      The green shirts dropped to the position in Test team rankings following the annual update in which series results from 2014-15 are removed and outcomes from the 2015-16 and 2016-17 seasons are weighted at 50 per cent.

      Meanwhile, India have stretched their lead over South Africa from four to 13 points after gaining four points to reach an aggregate of 125 while South Africa have lost five points and slipped to 112. South Africa, are, however, still comfortably ahead of the remaining sides.

      Australia are placed third with 106 points after gaining four points following the update, taking back the position from New Zealand, who had overtaken them at the last cut-off date of 3 April.

      That change in placings saw New Zealand assure themselves of $200,000 for finishing third. India and South Africa had won $ 1 million and $ 500,000, respectively for finishing first and second at the cut-off date. After the update, New Zealand remain on 102 points while England have inched closer, reaching 98 after gaining one point.

      In another interesting movement, Bangladesh have moved ahead of the Windies, who are in ninth position for the first time ever. The Windies have lost five points and are now on 67 points while Bangladesh have gained four points to reach 75, eight points clear of the Windies.

      Sri Lanka remain in sixth position after losing one point while Zimbabwe have gained one point to reach two. The table will see new additions in the form of Afghanistan and Ireland after they have played their first Tests following their Full Membership status.

      Ireland are due to play their first Test against Pakistan in Malahide, Dublin, from 11 to 15 May while Afghanistan’s first Test will be against India in Bengaluru from 14-18 June

      England overtake India to top ODI charts, Pakistan remain No 1 T20I side

      England have overtaken India to seize the top spot in the ICC ODI Team Rankings following the annual update Virat Kohli’s men confirmed their position at the top of the Test rankings on Tuesday, with a handy 13-point lead over South Africa.

      England, who last topped the ODI rankings in January 2013 have gained eight points and moved to 125 points. India, who were at the top before the update, have lost a solitary point and are in second place with a total of 122 points. South Africa, who were second, have dropped down to third place after losing four points, from 117 to 113, leaving them nine points adrift of India and only one point ahead of fourth- placed New Zealand.

      Nepal, meanwhile, have rejoined the T20I ratings but will need to play one more match before they can be placed on the ICC T20I Rankings, which is currently led by Pakistan. India remained third on the T20I rankings table, seven points behind Pakistan and three behind Australia.

      England’s rise up the ODI table is largely because of a forgettable 2014-15 season, which saw them winning only seven out of 25 ODIs against other Full Members, being been dropped from the latest calculations while those from the 2015-16 and 2016-17 seasons are weighted at 50 per cent.

      The remaining places remain unchanged, meaning that the current top 10 ranked sides are the ones who will be playing in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019. However, there have been some significant changes in points.

      World champions Australia have lost eight points to go down to 104 in fifth position and are only two points ahead of ICC Champions Trophy 2017 winners Pakistan, who have gained six points.

      In other changes, Bangladesh (93 points) have gained three points, Sri Lanka (77) have lost seven points, the Windies (69) have lost five points, Afghanistan (63) have gained five points, Zimbabwe (55) have gained four points and 12th-placed Ireland (38) have lost three points.

      In the T20I rankings led by Pakistan, there is no change in the top seven places but Afghanistan are now ahead of Sri Lanka in eighth slot.

      Pakistan (130) and Australia (126) remain in the first two positions without a change in their points total while India have gained two points to reach 123. New Zealand (116) are unchanged on points while England (115) have gained a solitary point.

      Other significant changes on the T20I table see South Africa (114) and the Windies (114) both gain three points with the former ahead on decimals in sixth position, Sri Lanka (85, ninth position) lose four points, Zimbabwe (58, 12th) lose three points, the Netherlands (53, 13th) gain four points, Hong Kong (42, 15th) lose four points and Ireland (33, 17th) lose three points.

      Kevin O’Brien, Tim Murtagh storm into top 100

      Azhar Ali dropped out of the top 10 among batsmen, while Faheem Ashraf and Imam-ul-Haq, the debutants, made significant gains

      Kevin O’Brien, the 34-year-old Ireland all-rounder, has not only broken into the top 100 in the MRF Tyres ICC Test Player Rankings for batsmen, but gone all the way up to joint No.66 following his heroics in his country’s maiden Test match.

      Ireland’s historic foray into Test cricket ended in a five-wicket defeat, but more than one Irish cricketer proved that they belonged at the highest level. None more so than O’Brien, who hit the most runs for the team both times of asking – 40 and 118. The century in the second innings even gave his team a slim chance of pulling off an upset result, which Pakistan managed to avert.

      O’Brien was named the Player of the Match, though, and his outstanding performance helped him get up as high as No.66 – equal with Vernon Philander – in the latest rankings with 440 points.

      He was the only Irish batsman in the top 100, with Stuart Thompson, who hit 53 in Ireland’s second-innings effort of 339, the next best at No.125 with 218 points.

      Among Irish bowlers, Tim Murtagh, who returned 4/45 and 2/55, was the best placed at No.67. Thompson – 3/62 and 1/31 – slotted in at No.88 among bowlers and joint No.76 among all-rounders.

      Overall, with not much Test cricket taking place, there was only one change in the top 10 in the list for batsmen and none at all among the top 15 for bowlers.

      Steve Smith, Virat Kohli and Joe Root continued be at the top of the pile for batsmen, with Kane Williamson, David Warner, AB de Villiers, Cheteshwar Pujara, Dean Elgar and Aiden Markram below them, but Hashim Amla has moved up to No.10 after Azhar Ali, the Pakistan opening batsman, had a poor Test against Ireland with scores of 4 and 2. Ali moved down to No.12.

      The big mover among Pakistani batsmen, meanwhile, was debutant Faheem Ashraf, whose 83 from No.8 was the top score in his team’s first innings. He earned 392 points to be at No.81. Imam-ul-Haq, also debuting in the match, scored 74* in the second innings to lift Pakistan from a precarious 14/3 in collaboration with Babar Azam (59) and got 274 points to get to No.113.

      Mohammad Abbas gains career best position in latest rankings

      Pakistan Test debutants, all rounder Faheem Ashraf and top order batsman Imam ul Haq, made impressive gains as they entered into International Cricket Council Test Player Rankings.

      “As for Pakistan’s debutants Faheem and Imam entered the rankings at 81st and 113th positions, respectively, in the list for batsmen. Faheem scored 83 in the first innings at Malahide while Imam had scores of seven and 74 not out,” stated ICC.

      Meanwhile, in the bowling department, fast bowler Mohammad Abbas reached to career best 29th position in Test cricket with 539 points, whereas, speedster Mohammad Amir too jumped two slots.

      “Pace bowlers Abbas and Amir have moved up the ladder with Abbas gaining eight slots to reach a career-best 29th position and Amir advancing two places to 37th position. Abbas finished with nine for 110 in the match while Amir took five for 72.”

      For Pakistan, the teams stay on seventh position, but have gained one point after victory in the one-off Test against Ireland and have now accumulated 87 points.

      England and Pakistan are ranked No.5 and No.7 respectively in the MRF Tyres ICC Test Team Rankings but Pakistan have a chance to race ahead of their opponents, England, in the upcoming two-Test series. While the difference between the rating points – England are at 98 while Pakistan have 87 – seems large, Pakistan can overtake England by winning the series 2-0."

      It’s an interesting one for Pakistan, especially when you consider where they stand in the Twenty20 International rankings – right up at No.1. Interestingly, despite being the ICC Champions Trophy 2017 winners, they are at No.6 in the one-day international rankings.

      The disparity in the rankings for England is almost as stark. While India are No.1 in Tests and No.2 and No.3 in ODIs and T20Is respectively – suggesting a multi-format, consistent set-up – England are No.1 in ODIs but No.5 in both Tests and T20Is.

      As for Pakistan, rebuilding as a young side under Sarfraz Ahmed, the two-Test series offers a great chance to re-establish their Test credentials. The last time they were there, after all, Pakistan drew the four-Test series 2-2 and became the No.1 Test team in the world.

      Pakistan’s Abbas moves into top 20 with fine show at Lord’s

      * Pakistan will overtake England in Test rankings if they complete 2-0 series win
      * Amir, Hasan and Asad also gain in Test rankings

      ISLAMABAD: Mohammad Abbas leads a trio of Pakistan fast bowlers who have moved up in the ICC Test Player Rankings after contributing in a memorable nine-wicket victory over England in the Lord’s Test that ended on Sunday in London. The 28-year-old Abbas’s player of the match haul of eight for 64 has helped him gain nine spots and reach a career-best 20th position after only seven Tests while Mohammad Amir and Hasan Ali have also moved up after creditable shows in the first of two Tests. Abbas said Monday that he was not entirely pleased with his eight-wicket haul in the first Test of the two-match series against England. Abbas was named player of the match after taking four wickets in each innings, but the fast-bowler is not happy with his achievements, especially not being able to take five wickets at the historic Lord’s. “I came here with a vision to produce a match-winning performance and I achieved that,” said Abbas. “Playing your first Test at the Home of Cricket – Lord’s – and being named the player of the match is one of the dreams that cricketers have. I have succeeded in achieving this honour and I am happy, but at the same time, I am sad that I was not able to add my name in the list of bowlers taking five-wicket haul at this ground.” Abbas further went on to credit his Leicestershire stint for his success in the Lord’s Test. Abbas added that his eyes were set on the next match, and he would be doing all he can to help the Men in Green win the series.

      Left-arm bowler Amir’s five wickets in the match have lifted him five places to 32nd position while Hasan Ali has gained 26 slots to reach 61st position after taking four first innings wickets. This is the career-best in Test matches for Hasan, who is currently ranked fourth in ODIs after having attained top rank in the format in October last year.

      Among Pakistan batsmen, Asad Shafiq has risen six slots to 26th place after slamming 59 in his only innings of the match, while Harris Sohail has moved up 13 places to 80th rank after scores of 39 and 39 not out. Babar Azam, who was forced to retire hurt after being struck on the wrist by a Ben Stokes delivery in the first innings and ruled out of further part in the series, has moved up 14 places to 86th position after his 68-run contribution. For England, Alastair Cook, a former number-two batsman, has gained one place to reach 15th position after scores of 70 and one while fast bowler James Anderson has retained his second slot with four wickets in the match but lost two points and is now eight points behind top-ranked Kagiso Rabada of South Africa.

      Pakistan’s unbeatable lead in the series also gives them a chance to overtake England in the ICC Test Team Rankings. A 2-0 series result will take them from seventh to fifth position with 95 points, while pushing England down to seventh position and 93 points. England started the series on 97 points while Pakistan were on 88.

      Broad, Woakes move up after Headingley win

      It was the turn of England’s fast bowlers to make progress on the MRF Tyres ICC Test Player Rankings, putting up a fine show that helped score an innings and 55 runs victory over Pakistan in the second Test at Headingley to finish the two-match series at 1-1.

      If player of the series Mohammad Abbas and left-arm bowler Mohammad Amir had made significant progress while helping Pakistan win the opening Test at Lord’s, Stuart Broad and Chris Woakes have moved up the rankings after the second Test.

      Broad’s figures of three for 38 and three for 28 have helped him gain two spots and move to 12th place, the position on which he had started the series while Woakes has gained one spot to reach 34th place after taking four wickets in the match. James Anderson’s five wickets have helped him gain three points to reach within five points of top-ranked Kagiso Rabada (897 points).

      Among their batsmen, Jos Buttler is the biggest gainer, as his player of the match effort of 80 not out has lifted him 19 places to 63rd position. Opener Alastair Cook (up one place to 13th), Dawid Malan (up one place to 60th) and Dominic Bess (up 23 places to 92) are the others to gain.

      For Pakistan, Abbas and Amir have retained their 20th and 32nd places respectively, while leg-spinning all-rounder Shadab Khan has moved up three places to 93rd among bowlers and 22 places to 108th among batsmen. Fast bowler Faheem Ashraf (up 18 places to 98th) and middle-order batsman Haris Sohail (up two places to 77th) are the other gainers in the latest rankings.

      Seventh-ranked Pakistan could have swapped places with fifth-ranked England had they managed to win the second Test but the result means there are no change of places on the MRF Tyres ICC Test Team Rankings with England losing one point and Pakistan gaining one.

      In a series starting on Wednesday, the Windies play three Tests against Sri Lanka at home, with a chance to improve their position in the team rankings. A 2-0 or verdict could help ninth-placed Windies overtake Bangladesh while pulling Sri Lanka down from sixth to seventh position.

      Series scenarios:

      • Sri Lanka win 3-0 – Sri Lanka 97 points, Windies 64
      • Sri Lanka win 2-0 – Sri Lanka 95, Windies 66
      • Sri Lanka win 1-0 – Sri Lanka 94, Windies 68
      • Drawn series – Sri Lanka 91, Windies 72
      • Windies win 1-0 – Sri Lanka 88, Windies 75
      • Windies win 2-0 – Sri Lanka 87, Windies 77
      • Windies win 3-0 – Sri Lanka 85, Windies 79
      Series schedule:

      6-10 June – 1st Test, Port of Spain

      14-18 June – 2nd Test, Gros Islet

      23-27 June – 3rd Test, Bridgetown

      Pakistan’s number one spot in danger

      Pakistan may lose its top spot at the T20I Rankings if the Green Shirts lose the two-match T20I series against Scotland to be played next week.

      Pakistan sits at the top spot in T20I Rankings with 130 points. In case of winning the series 2-0, it will maintain its spot with an addition of one point. Meanwhile, in case of a leveled series 1-1, Pakistan would maintain the spot but with the loss of three points, leaving Pakistan only a point shy from Australia.

      However, in an unlikely scenario, if Pakistan loses the series 0-2, the Men in Green would lose their spot and will be dragged to third spot just below India with 123 points.

      Australia hit lowest ranking in 34 years before crucial ODI in England

      Australia arrive in Nottingham at one of the lowest points in their one-day international cricket history as they desperately try to keep their series against England alive at Trent Bridge on Wednesday (1am NZT).

      Captain Tim Paine's side trail the world's top-ranked team 2-0, having lost 4-1 when the sides met in Australia earlier this year.

      And the news didn't get any better for the Australians when the latest International Cricket Council ODI rankings were released on Sunday.

      A year out from the World Cup in England and Wales, the reigning champions slumped to sixth, their lowest ranking in 34 years. Not since January 1984 had they slipped as low.

      Australia were overtaken by Pakistan's Champions Trophy-winning side, who replaced them in fifth, behind a top-four of England, India, South Africa and New Zealand. The Black Caps hold fourth spot across all three formats.

      Since they romped home against New Zealand (3-0) and Pakistan (4-1) in the summer of 2016-17, Australia since won just nine of 23 completed ODIs, eight of those at home. Their most recent stretch of 13 defeats in 15 completed ODIs was unprecedented for the five-time World Cup winners.

      Coach Justin Langer's first Australian squad were always going to be up against it in this five-match series without their two best batsmen Steve Smith and David Warner.

      Star quicks Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc and Josh Hazlewood were also sidelined through injury leaving an inexperienced bowling attack tasked with trying to stifle an aggressive batting line-up.

      AJ Tye, Jhye Richardson and Kane Richardson were pummelled by England at Cardiff on Saturday, as the hosts scored 342-8 - their highest total against Australia.

      Pakistan move to number five in ODI rankings
      DUBAI: Pakistan have moved up to number five in the latest one day international (ODI) rankings released by the International Cricket Council (ICC).

      The rankings also saw Australia slip to number six in the rankings, a first for them in the last 34 years. The last time Australia were ranked number six was back in 1984.

      The slip in the ODI rankings for Australia comes as a result of their defeat in the first two ODI's against England, the world's number one-ranked side in this format.

      Australia will now have to win at least one of the three remaining games in the series to climb back above Pakistan to fifth.

      The first ODI of the series saw Australia's batting fail, while posting a meager total of 214 before English bowlers, scrapes way for a three-wicket win at The Oval.

      On Saturday, Australia lost the second ODI by 38-runs leaving them 2-0 down in the five-match ODI series against England.

      It also saw world champions sixth defeat in seven ODIs against England this year, a sequence that includes a 4-1 series loss down under in January.

      Overall, it was the 13th loss for the kangaroos from their last 15 matches.
