Bumrah slips to fifth spot in ICC ODI rankings for bowlers

Bangladesh duo of Mehidy Hasan and Mustafizur Rahman have made significant progress after their impressive show against Sri Lanka

India fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah has slipped one place to fifth in the ICC One-Day International (ODI) rankings for bowlers. Bumrah, who is yet to play an ODI this year, managed just five wickets at 96.40 from nine matches last year. He remains the only Indian bowler in the top 10. Bumrah opted out of the T20I and ODI against England at home due to personal reasons. 

Bangladesh off-spinner Mehidy Hasan, on the other hand, who has picked up seven wickets from two matches in the series against Sri Lanka has climbed to No. 2 in the list, while his teammate Mustafizur Rahman jumps eight places and has broken into the top 10.

Rahman too has been in excellent form in the ODI series against Sri Lanka, having picked up six wickets from two matches so far. He had a good run in the IPL 2021 as well, picking up eight wickets at an economy rate of 8.29 in seven matches.

Bangladesh have already taken an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match series against Sri Lanka. They won the first game by 33 runs and followed that up with a comprehensive 103-run victory (DLS method) in the second game. The third and final match of the series will be played on Friday (May 28) at Mirpur. 

The series began at the backdrop of contract issues between Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) and the players. None of the players have signed a new contract offered by the board, but new captain Kusal Perera insisted that his team was focussed on the series against Bangladesh.

Among the batsmen, India skipper Virat Kohli and his deputy Rohit Sharma held on to their second and third positions respectively. Kohli and Rohit were sitting pretty with 857 and 825 points respectively in the batting list headed by Pakistan's Babar Azam with 865 points.

Mushfiqur Rahim, player of the match in both ODIs, has moved up four places to a career-best 14th position after scoring 84 and 125. His best position has been fifth, which he had attained in December 2018.

Mahmudullah has advanced two places to 38th position after his scores of 54 and 41.
