As the 13th edition of the ODI World Cup unfolds, the latest ICC rankings reflect the dynamic shifts in the world of cricket. Despite a few challenges, Pakistan’s captain, Babar Azam, has managed to retain his top spot in the rankings, albeit with a noticeable decrease in his lead. On the other hand, India’s Virat Kohli has made a significant move, ascending to the seventh position with an impressive rating of 715 points.

One of the standout performances in the early matches of the World Cup came from Virat Kohli, who played a brilliant innings of 85 runs, aiding India in chasing down a target of 200 against Australia. This remarkable performance propelled Kohli to the seventh spot in the batting rankings.

Meanwhile, Babar Azam’s top ranking remains under threat, with India’s Shubman Gill not far behind. Despite not participating in the Australia clash, Gill is now just five rating points away from Babar, securing the second position in the rankings.

In addition to Kohli’s remarkable climb, other notable performances include South Africa’s centurions Rassie van der Dussen and Quinton de Kock, who are positioned at third and sixth place, respectively. KL Rahul, who was awarded the Player of the Match in the Australia game, has now entered the top 20 and stands at the 19th position with 633 rating points.

The bowling rankings witnessed changes as well, with Mohammed Siraj losing his top spot to Josh Hazlewood, who displayed an impressive performance in a recent match. India’s Kuldeep Yadav is positioned at the eighth place, while Pakistan’s Shaheen Afridi

dropped out of the top 10 rankings after a less-than-ideal performance in the World Cup.

With Trent Boult, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, and Matt Henry occupying the third, fourth, and fifth positions in the bowling rankings, the competition remains fierce. In the all-rounders rankings, Shakib Al Hasan maintains his apex position.

These rankings indicate the fluidity of the cricketing landscape as the World Cup progresses, with players striving to make their mark and secure their positions among the top-ranked players in the world.
