Shubman Gill reaches career-best position in ICC ODI rankings

Virat Kohli (6) and Rohit Sharma (8) are the only other Indian batters among the top 10

India batter Shubman Gill moves up one place to reach career-best position of No. 4 in the latest ICC One-Day International (ODI) rankings for batters. Gill is the highest-ranked Indian batter with Virat Kohli (6) and Rohit Sharma (8) also in the top 10. Gill has been in top form this year, scoring 624 runs in nine innings at a strike-rate of 108.26, including three tons and two fifties, including a a best of 208.

Following his 175 against the Netherlands at the Wanderers, Aiden Markram has gained 13 spots to reach 41st position. In the all-rounder's rankings, Markram has jumped 16 places to 32nd following South Africa's 2-0 ODI series win over the Dutch. Courtesy of the series victory, the Proteas remain in contention for an automatic qualification for the ODI World Cup to be played later this year in India.

Their hopes hinge on the three-match ODI series between Bangladesh and Ireland, which will be played in May. South Africa could miss out if Ireland manage to win all three matches.

Among the bowlers New Zealand pacer Matt Henry moved up five places to fifth, after picking up three wickets at 8.66 and an impressive economy rate of 1.62 in two games. Sisanda Magala's eight wickets, including a maiden five-wicket haul  in the series against the Netherlands also saw him move up 35 spots to a career-best 165th among bowlers.

In T20Is, while Shakib Al Hasan remained the top all-rounder he moved up one spot to 62nd in the batting rankings and Sri Lanka's Maheesh Theekshana has moved into the top 10 among bowlers. New Zealand's Daryl Mitchell moves to the 21st spot among batters in the format, his career-best, sharing the spot with Litton Das.
