3646Views 1Like

Shubman Gill, the young Indian batsman, has climbed to his career-best position of No. 4 in the latest ICC ODI Rankings. The updated rankings were released on Wednesday, April 5, and Gill’s consistent performances in ODI cricket have earned him 738 points. This puts him just two points behind No. 3-ranked Imam-ul-Haq of Pakistan.

Gill’s rise in the rankings has coincided with South African star Quinton de Kock’s fall from No. 4 to No. 7. This has also allowed Indian captain Virat Kohli to jump up a spot to No. 6. In fact, India now has three batsmen in the top 10, with Rohit Sharma retaining his spot at No. 8.

Pakistan’s Babar Azam remains the top-ranked batter with 887 points. Rassie van der Dussen of South Africa and Imam-ul-Haq of Pakistan are ranked second and third, respectively. Gill, with 738 points, is fourth in the rankings, moving up one spot from his previous position.

Gill had a relatively quiet series against Australia in March, scoring only 57 runs in three ODIs. However, he has been in great form in the 50-over format, scoring three centuries in the past year. Kohli, meanwhile, has scored 427 runs, including two centuries and a fifty, in ODIs so far this year.


Other Bowling Ranks

In the bowling rankings, Mohammed Siraj has retained his third spot, while New Zealand’s Trent Boult is closing in on No. 1-ranked Pat Cummins of Australia.

South African batsman Aiden Markram has made a significant jump in the rankings, gaining 13 spots to reach 41st position in the batting rankings and 16 places to 32nd in the all-rounders’ list.

His team’s recent series win over the Netherlands has put them in a strong position for automatic qualification for the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup later this year.

South Africa’s hopes for automatic qualification for the ODI World Cup rely on the results of the three-match ODI series between Bangladesh and Ireland, which will be played in May. If Ireland manages to win all three matches, South Africa could miss out on the tournament.

There were also notable gains for the Netherlands’ Max O’Dowd, Vikramjit Singh, and Teja Ndiamanuru in the batting rankings.

Meanwhile, Matt Henry of New Zealand jumped five slots to land on the fifth spot in the bowling rankings, while South Africa’s Sisanda Magala climbed 35 places to reach a career-best position of 165th after taking eight wickets in two matches.

Additional Rankings

In the T20 International rankings, Suryakumar Yadav holds the top position with 906 rating points, while Hardik Pandya remains in the second position in the all-rounder list. Bangladesh’s Litton Das moved up one place to reach his career-best ranking of 21.

The current top 10 in the ICC ODI batting rankings are Babar Azam, Rassie van der Dussen, Imam-ul-Haq, Shubman Gill, David Warner, Virat Kohli, Quinton de Kock, Rohit Sharma, Steve Smith, and Fakhar Zaman.

Overall, there were significant gains made by several players in the latest ICC rankings, and it will be exciting to see how these players perform in their upcoming matches.
