Bowlers make gains in the latest Reliance ICC ODI rankings - Cricket News
West Indies bowler Sunil Narine has retained his position at the top of the table.
Bowlers made the biggest impression in the latest Reliance ICC ODI Player Rankings, released on Friday, a day after India beat Sri Lanka by one wicket in the final of the tri-series in Port-of-Spain, Trinidad and Tobago.
 
Sri Lanka spinner Rangana Herath has jumped 14 places to 11th, and his skipper Angelo Mathews moved up nine places to 13th in the Reliance ICC ODI Player Rankings for Bowlers.
 
The other bowlers to make an impact inside the top 20 are Kemar Roach in 17th (up by one) and Bhuvaneshwar Kumar in 20th (up by 29).
 
Outside the top 20, Darren Sammy in 29th (up by nine), Ravi Rampaul in 30th (up by one), Peter Borren in 55th(up by two) and Kevin O'Brien in 58th (up by 12) have also made upward movements.
 
The bowlers’ table is still headed by West Indies’ Sunil Narine, followed by Saeed Ajmal in second place and England’s Steven Finn in third spot.
 
Meanwhile, in the Reliance ICC ODI Player Rankings for Batsmen, ex-Sri Lanka skipper Kumar Sangakkara has moved up a place to fifth. Another former Sri Lanka captain, Mahela Jayawardene, is back in the top 20 after he moved up three places to 18th.
 
The other big strides in the latest rankings were by Ireland’s Kevin O’Brien in 30th (up by one), Johnson Charles in 33rd (up by 37); Tanmay Mishra in joint 36th (up by 29) with Angelo Mathews (up by five) and Darren Bravo (up by nine); Rohit Sharma in 43rd (up by six), Upul Tharanga in 48th (up by five), Ed Joyce in 52nd (up by 16), Lendl Simmons in 54th (up by six) and Lahiru Thirimanne in 62nd (up by five).
 
The batting table is still headed by South Africa captain AB de Villiers, with Hashim Amla in second place and India's Virat Kohli in third place.
