On Wednesday, the International Cricket Council (ICC) revealed its current ODI rankings, still led by former captain Babar Azam. The famed player led with 824 points, followed by Indian hitters Shubman Gill (801), Virat Kohli (768), and Rohit Sharman (746).

After his unbeaten 97 in the second match of the series, Sri Lankan player Charith Asalanka rose five places to 15th, Pathum Nissanka rose 10 places to 18th, and Sadeera Samarawickrama rose six places to 41st after a stylish half-century.

After a brilliant century against Sri Lanka, a new ODI all-rounder topped the rankings. Afghanistan veteran Mohammad Nabi tops the current ICC Men’s ODI All-Rounder Rankings, ending Shakib Al Hasan’s reign.

From 7 May 2019 (when he replaced Rashid Khan) to 9 February 2024, Shakib led the ODI all-rounder rankings for 1739 days, the longest streak ever. A continuing injury issue and Nabi’s recent form have changed the top spot.

The top of the Test rankings remains unchanged, with Kane Williamson expanding his lead for batters after a pair of centuries in the first Test against South Africa and India quick Jasprit Bumrah remaining leading for bowlers.

After taking six wickets in that Mount Maunganui match against the Proteas, Kiwi pacer Kyle Jamieson rose six places to sixth overall. Jamieson climbs up two places to 13th on the Test all-rounders list after scoring 8* against South Africa, with Ravindra Jadeja still leading the way.
