Home » Cricket News » Gill, Siraj Lead Indian Surge to Top ICC ODI Rankings

Siraj is back on top of the bowling table, and Shubman Gill has passed Babar Azam to become the new No. 1 ODI hitter.

With this win, Shubman Gill has moved ahead of Babar Azam to become the best ODI batter of all time.

The best ODI bowler is now also an Indian. Mohammed Siraj moved up two spots and took the top spot from Shaheen Shah Afridi.

There are a lot of Indian bowlers at the top of the table. Kuldeep Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah, and Mohammed Shami are all in the top ten.

Virat Kohli has moved up three spots to No. 4 among the batters, just one rating point behind Quinton de Kock, who has scored the most runs so far at the World Cup.

In one-day internationals, Gill has had a great year. He has scored 1449 runs in 26 games, including four hundreds and a double-century.

During the past year, his average has been an amazing 63.00, while his career average has been 61.02.

After being out at the start of the World Cup because of dengue, he got off to a slow start. But he now has 219 runs in six games, including fifties against Bangladesh and Sri Lanka.

This World Cup has been good for Babar, who has scored four half-centuries in eight innings. But Gill was getting faster, and Babar had to do more to keep the spot he had held for more than two years.

From India’s point of view, Gill is now the fourth player in ICC history to be ranked as the best ODI hitter. The others are Sachin Tendulkar, MS Dhoni, and Kohli.

On the other hand, Glenn Maxwell’s amazing batting effort on Tuesday night in Mumbai was the best of the World Cup so far.

He led Australia past Afghanistan and into the World Cup semifinals by himself. He moved up two spots to sixth with that perfect hundred, and the other century player in the game, Ibrahim Zadran, is up six spots to 12th after a great World Cup.

At No. 11, up three spots, Fakhar Zaman is just outside the top ten for hitters. He has also been very important to his team’s success.

In general, the results show how dominant India has been at the World Cup so far; they have won all eight of their league-stage games by large margins.

Kohli (No. 2, behind de Kock) and Rohit Sharma (No. 5) have been their best hitters so far, but it’s been their bowling that has really stood out.

The five bowlers—Sami (16 wickets in four games), Bumrah (15 wickets in eight games), Ravindra Jadeja (14 wickets in eight games), Kuldeep (12 wickets in eight games), and Siraj (ten wickets in eight games)—have done a great job as a group.

In their last three games, India has bowled out England for 129, Sri Lanka for 55, and South Africa for 83.

He went from third to first after taking 3 for 16 against Sri Lanka and 1 for 11 against South Africa earlier in the week.

Afridi, who was No. 1 last week, is now only No. 5. Keshav Maharaj and Adam Zampa, the two spinners with the second-most wickets at the World Cup right now, move up to No. 2 and No. 3, respectively.

On the Indian side, Kuldeep has moved up three spots to fourth, Bumrah has moved up three spots to eighth, and Shami has moved up seven spots to tenth.

At this point, Dilshan Madushanka has moved up 31 spots to No. 45 and Marco Jansen has moved up nine spots to tie for 24th place as the top wicket-taker at the World Cup.
