Indian skipper Virat Kohli continued to remain at the top spot in the latest Internation Cricket Council (ICC) ODI rankings for batsmen, while pacer Jasprit Bumrah occupied the second place among the bowlers in the updated list released on Tuesday (July 28). Kohli is standing atop the list with 871 points, followed by his fellow teammate Rohit Sharma (855) and Pakistan’s Babar Azam (829). Bumrah, on the other hand, is standing only behind New Zealand’s Trent Boult. Ravindra Jadeja is the lone player from India to feature in the top 10 list of all-rounders, headed by Afghanistan’s Mohammad Nabi.
Meanwhile, England’s Jason Roy and Jonny Bairstow will be in the focus from the rankings perspective as the reigning World Cup champions kick off the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup Super League with their three-match home series against Ireland on Thursday (July 30). Opener Roy and wicketkeeper-batsman Bairstow, currently ranked 11th and 14th, respectively, in the ICC Men’s ODI Player Rankings, could work their way back into the top 10, having both enjoyed personal best rankings of ninth position in the past.
