Root and Senanayake achieve career-best rankings - Cricket News
Joe Root of England has progressed to a career high 11th place in the Reliance ICC Player Rankings for ODI Batsmen.
England’s Joe Root and Sachithra Senanayake of Sri Lanka have achieved career-best rankings in the latestReliance ICC ODI Player Rankings following the conclusion of the seven-match series, which Sri Lanka won by 5-2.
 
Root finished the series as the second leading run-getter with 367 runs for which he has been rewarded with a jump 14 places. This has now put him in 11th spot in the Reliance ICC Player Rankings for ODI Batsmen, a position he shares with Sri Lanka captain Angelo Mathews.
 
Root’s team-mate Jos Buttler, who aggregated 145 runs in the series, has also moved up three places to a career-high 27th. Root and Buttler are now the highest-ranked England batsmen, followed by Alastair Cook (34th), Eoin Morgan (37th), Ravi Bopara (66th) and Moeen Ali (83rd).
 
In the other changes to the batting table, Tillakaratne Dilshan has moved up two places to seventh following his series contribution of 357 runs. He is now one ratings point clear of South Africa’s Quinton de Kock.
 
There were also positive progressions for Dinesh Chandimal (up five places to 68th) and Thisara Perera (up 16 places to 91st), while Kumar Sangakarra, who was the top run-getter in the series with 454 runs, has consolidated his fourth spot and now trails third-ranked Hashim Amla of South Africa by 17 ratings points.
 
In the ICC Players Rankings for ODI Bowlers, Sachithra Senanayake was the highest-mover from either sideafter taking five wickets for 68 runs in two ODIs. The 29-year-old off-spinner has vaulted 18 places to a career-high seventh position, 22 ratings points behind England’s James Anderson.
 
Rangana Herath has moved up six places to 14th position after taking seven wickets for 175 runs in four matches. This now means Sri Lanka has two spinners inside the top 20.
 
England’s Chris Woakes was the leading wicket-taker in the series with 14 wickets and he has moved up 25 places to a career-high 63rd position. Dilshan’s 12 wickets in the series has lifted him 17 places to a career-high 44th.
 
Other movers in the bowling rankings are Suranga Lakmal (up 24 places to 38th), Chris Jordan (up 10 places to 47th), Seekkuge Prasanna (up 16 to 77th) and Moeen Ali (up 37 to 102nd).
 
In the Reliance ICC ODI Player Rankings for ODI All-rounders, Mathews has conceded 11 ratings points, which means he now shares number-one spot with Pakistan’s Mohammad Hafeez.
 
Meanwhile, in the Reliance ICC ODI Team Rankings, the 5-2 series win has seen Sri Lanka increase its lead over England by six points to 110 ratings points. Mathews’ side is now two points adrift of third-placed South Africa.
 
Australia holds a narrow 0.2 lead over India at the top of the rankings, with both sides on 117 ratings points.
