While Kohli continues to dominate the top, Chahal makes his way into the top ten

Team India captain Virat Kohli continues to dominate the ICC ODI rankings after a smashing performance in the 5-match ODI series against West Indies which India clinched 3-1. Making his way to the top ten for the first time was leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal after an impressive show in the recently concluded series. 

Kohli notched up 10,000 ODI runs on his way to a series aggregate of 453 runs and has consolidated his position as the top-ranked batsman in the ODI rankings.

He earned 15 points, which has lifted him to 899 points, 28 ahead of second-ranked team-mate Rohit Sharma, who has collected 29 points following his series total of 389 runs. His points tally of 871 is his highest to-date. The captain hammered three centuries, while his deputy struck two 150's. 

However, Rohit's opening partner, Shikhar Dhawan, has dropped to the ninth spot in the batting order after he failed to make an impact in the ODIs against the Windies.

In the bowlers' table, Chahal, Akila Dananjaya and Ravindra Jadeja have made big impacts, while number-one-ranked Jasprit Bumrah has achieved a career-high 841 rating points, which is the highest in ODI bowling since Shaun Pollock had 894 points in 2008.

Bumrah leads third-ranked Kuldeep Yadav by 118 points. Yadav is also at a career-high 723 rating points.

Chahal has entered the top-10 for the first time in his career by rising three places to eighth, Sri Lanka's Dananjaya has achieved a career-high ranking of 13th after his nine wickets helped him jump eight places, and Jadeja has climbed 16 places to move to 25th spot after picking up seven wickets.
