Ross Taylor and Kane Williamson have made impressive gains in the latest Reliance ICC Player Rankings for ODI Batsmen, released a day after New Zealand won the five-match series against India 4-0.

Taylor, named Player of the Match in the final ODI at Wellington on Friday, jumped six places to return to the top 10, and now sits in 10th place. Taylor was the second highest run-getter in the series with 343 runs from five matches.

Williamson ended as the highest run-getter in the series with 361 runs, and has risen 20 places to a best-ever ranking of 11th with 688 ratings points, only 25 ratings points behind Taylor. Williamson shares the 11th position with India’s Shikhar Dhawan.

Inside the top 10, India’s Virat Kohli has gained 11 ratings points to finish on 870 after his series contribution of 291 runs, just two points behind number-one ranked AB de Villiers.

The latest rankings update also takes into account Australia’s 4-1 series win over England. As a result, Australia batsman George Bailey is now up a place to a third, just 14 ratings points behind Kohli and 16 behind de Villiers.

Meanwhile, England batsman Eoin Morgan has jumped four places to 13th even as New Zealand’s Martin Guptill returned to the top 20, moving up five places to 19th

Outside the top 20, the batsmen to move up include Ian Bell in 23rd (up by three), Glenn Maxwell in 32nd (up by nine), Corey Anderson in 34th (up by 51), David Warner in 40th (up by 17), James Faulkner in 50th (up by 15), Jesse Ryder in 52nd (up by three), Shaun Marsh in 64th (up by 17), and Ravindra Jadeja (up by eight) and Aaron Finch (up by 35) in joint 65th.

Ravindra Jadeja continues to be the only India bowler in the top 10 of the Reliance ICC Player Rankings for ODI Bowlers, but has dropped three places to ninth, a position he shares with Australia’s Clint McKay who moved up three positions to return to the top 10.

New Zealand’s pace duo of Kyle Mills and Tim Southee have made gains too. Mills has moved up three places to 14th, while Southee has jumped eight places to 18th to return to the top 20.

Outside the top 20, the bowlers to move up include Bhuvaneshwar Kumar in 23rd (up by one), Nathan McCullum in 27th (up by one), Xavier Doherty in 29th (up by six), Mohammed Shami in 35th (up by six), James Faulkner in 45th (up by 15) and Ravi Bopara in 54th (up by 11).

In the Reliance ICC ODI Team Rankings, India’s 0-4 loss to New Zealand meant that it dropped down a place to second with a loss of five ratings points to 115. India ceded the top position to Australia, who climbed the table after winning the series against England 4-1.

New Zealand, meanwhile, moved up a place to seventh with a gain of eight ratings points to end on 94, just seven behind sixth-ranked Pakistan.

India started the series at the top of the table with 120 ratings points, while New Zealand was in eighth place with 86 ratings points.
