Sri Lanka, New Zealand stars make huge gains in ODI Player Rankings

Wanindu Hasaranga, Tom Latham and Kane Williamson, among other players, have climbed the charts in the MRF Tyres ICC Men’s ODI Player Rankings.

Tom Latham scored a stunning century walking in to bat at a precarious position in the first ODI against India that helped New Zealand chase down 300+ in Auckland. His  145* off 104 balls has aided a 10-place rise to No.18 in the MRF Tyres ICC Men’s ODI Player Rankings for batters.

Skipper Kane Williamson played the perfect second fiddle with an unbeaten 98-ball 94 and broke into the top 10 at the 10th spot (up one place).

Shreyas Iyer and Shubman Gill were two of the three half-centurions for India and both were rewarded as they rose to No.27 (up six places) and No.34 (up three places) respectively.

Lockie Ferguson was the pick of the bowlers among both sides in the first ODI with figures of 3/59. The ace pacer rises three spots to No.32 in the bowler rankings. Matt Henry rises four spots to No.5 owing to his economic spell coupled with the rankings drop of Mujeeb Ur Rahman.

There was more movement in the ODI Rankings as a result of Afghanistan’s memorable win over Sri Lanka in the first ODI in Pallekele.

Centurion Ibrahim Zadran made exponential gains in the batters’ rankings, rising 73 spots to No.122 while his fellow opener, Rahmanullah Gurbaz, gained 21 places to No.48. Rahmat Shah’s fifty has helped him to joint No.22 and he remains Afghanistan’s top-ranked ODI batter.

Wanindu Hasaranga fought hard with the bat in the chase for Sri Lanka and for his 46-ball 66 as well as his two-wicket spell, he rose nine spots in the all-rounders ranking and broke into the top 10 to sit at No.8.
