Boult replaces Bumrah as top-ranked ODI bowler

The Indian seamer missed the third and final ODI against England due to a back spasm

New Zealand left-arm seamer Trent Boult has dethroned Jasprit Bumrah to become the top-ranked ODI bowler. The Indian paceman missed the third and final ODI against England due to a back spasm and that has pushed him below Boult in the ICC rankings.

Bumrah had regained the top spot after the first ODI in which he claimed six wickets. Legspinner Yuzvendra Chahal, who scalped seven wickets in the series,  has jumped four spots to 16th on the rankings for bowlers.

Meanwhile, Hardik Pandya is now eighth on the list for all-rounders. The ace all-rounder was named Player of the Series against England, having scored 100 runs in two innings and picking six wickets at an average of 12.33.

India's wicketkeeper-batter Rishabh Pant, who smashed a match-winning century in the series-decider, also climbed 25 spots to 52nd overall on the list for batters. 

Pakistan captain Babar Azam still sit at the top of the list for batters, followed by Imam-ul-Haq, Rassie van der Dussen, Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma.

Van der Dussen slammed a century in the first ODI against England on Tuesday and that helped him jump three places to third overall on the batter rankings.

England all-rounder Ben Stokes dropped four spots and out of the top 10 for all-rounders to 11th, while compatriot Chris Woakes fell two spots on both the bowlers and all-rounders' lists after he failed to feature during the series.
