Team India rise to 2nd in ICC ODI rankings

Team India claims the number 2 spot in the ICC ODI rankings after series wins in Australia and New Zealand; Captain Virat Kohli and pacer Jasprit Bumrah take the top spots in the batting and bowling rankings.

The Indian cricket team on Monday rose a rung to second in the ICC ODI rankings in which captain Virat Kohli and pacer Jasprit Bumrah continued to top the respective charts for batsmen and bowlers.

India have accumulated 122 points on the back of series wins over Australia and New Zealand and are placed behind England in the fresh list.

Mahendra Singh Dhoni also moved up owing to a strong showing against Australia last month, which fetched him the player of the series award.

Dhoni has moved up three places to 17th position in the batting list for a run, which included three consecutive half-centuries against Australia.

New Zealand fast bowler Trent Boult surged to third in the rankings for bowlers after finishing with 12 wickets in the series against India, which culminated in Wellington on Sunday with a 4-1 victory for the visiting side.
