21st December,2023, Mumbai: Babar Azam has supplanted Shubman Gill as the No. 1 ODI player in the world with the star Pakistan hitter reclaiming the situation in under 45 days in the wake of giving up it. Gill, who on November 8 dislodged Babar from the highest point of the ODI rankings for hitters, hasn’t done a lot of wrong, scoring 135 runs from three innings, including two half-hundreds of years, yet shockingly needed to surrender it for Babar, who has played only one innings scoring 38 against England at the Eden Gardens. Gill actually closes the year as the best ODI hitter, wrapping up with 1584 runs from 29 matches at a normal of 63.36.
With 824 places, Babar is once again at 1, trailed by Gill at second with 810. Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma have clutched their situations at No. 3 and 4 individually, while Shreyas Iyer has dropped to twelfth. KL Rahul is the main Indian who has moved up the stepping stool, getting his place at No. 16.
Ravi Bishnoi Dislodged By Adil Rashid
Other than Gill, India spinner Ravi Bishnoi too wasted his situation as the No. 1-positioned T20I bowler. His position was taken by individual wrist-spinner Adil Rashid of England. Bishnoi, after his Player of the Series commendable execution against Australia, where he got nine wickets from 5 T20Is, didn’t play a game and was precluded from the two games among India and South Africa.
Rashid, who was prior positioned 3, climbed to set after a fine show against West Indies, getting seven wickets from 4 games. With this, Rashid turns out to be just the second bowler from England to arrive at the apex of the ICC T20I rankings after Graeme Swann, who turned into No. 1 over quite a while back.
Throughout recent weeks, the head position on the T20I bowlers list has seen three unique players hold the best position. Akeal Hosein, the West Indies spinner, has made a prominent rising, climbing three spots to get the 6th position. Also, Tabraiz Shamsi, the South African partner, has taken a great action by rising three spots to guarantee the 10th spot. This powerful shift inside the main 10 mirrors a clamoring day for the rankings, featuring the noteworthy exhibitions of these gifted bowlers.
