Jasprit Bumrah became the sole owner of the no.1 spot for the first time in the ICC ODI bowling rankings released on Tuesday. Bumrah picked up 8 wickets in 6 ODI matches against South Africa recently.
Rashid Khan lost his position as joint no.1 ODI bowler, after a lackluster show at the ICC CWC Qualifiers in Zimbabwe, which Afghanistan won beating Windies in the final.
New Zealand cricketer Ross Taylor has leapt up into the top 10 batsmen thanks to a rich haul of runs against England in the 5 match ODI series, including his career best 181. He jumped to no.7 in the ODI rankings, after 4 years.
