England has overtaken Sri Lanka to reach fifth position in the latest MRF Tyres ICC ODI Team Rankings after completing a 3-0 win in their five-match series that ended on Saturday.
 
England, which had started the series two points behind Sri Lanka’s 105, won the second, fourth and fifth matches with big margins after the opening match ended in a tie and the third was a no-result due to rain. England gained three points to reach 106 while Sri Lanka lost three points to tally 102.

World champion Australia is at the top of the table with 123 points, New Zealand second at 113 while India and South Africa are both at 110 with India ahead on decimal points.

Some dominating individual performances from England saw its players rise up the MRF Tyres ICC Players Rankings for ODI batsmen with Jason Roy reaching a career-best 48th after two centuries in the series, and Joe Root and Jos Buttler also winding their way up in a list headed by South African AB de Villiers.

Roy, who smashed an unbeaten 112 in a 10-wicket win in the second match at Birmigham and an astounding 118-ball 162 in a six-wicket win in the fourth match at The Oval to end up as the highest run-getter in the series with 316 runs, jumped 30 places.

Root, England’s top-ranked batsman, gained three spots to reach seventh after scoring 171 runs in the series including a 93 in the final game at Cardiff which England won by 122 runs. Buttler gained two spots to reach 15th after scoring 180 in three innings with a high of 93 in the tied opening game at Nottingham.

For Sri Lanka, captain Angelo Mathews scored 253 runs in the series to be on joint-18th position while Dinesh Chandimal gained seven slots to reach 52nd after aggregating 267 runs, the highest for Sri Lanka and second overall behind Roy.

England leg-spinner Adil Rashid, who took six wickets in the series, moved from 30th to a career-high 18th in the MRF Tyres Rankings for ODI Bowlers led by West Indian spinner Sunil Narine. Left-arm pace bowler David Willey also reached a career-high 29, gaining 15 slots after taking 10 wickets in the series including a haul of 4-34 in the last game. Liam Plunkett gained 11 slots to reach 88th with his 10 wickets in the series.

In the MRF Tyres ICC Test Rankings for ODI All-rounders, Angelo Mathews and Tillakaratne Dilshan retained their third and fourth places, respectively.
