Yuzvendra Chahal breaks into top five among bowlers in ICC ODI rankings

Team India leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal has entered into the top-five among bowlers in the ICC ODI players rankings after his superb spell against New Zealand in the recently concluded ODI series. 

Chahal moved up one place to claim the fifth spot, while teammate Bhuvneshwar Kumar jumped six places to attain the 17th spot. 

India have accumulated 122 points on the back of series wins over Australia and New Zealand and are placed behind England (126) in the fresh list, the ICC said in a statement.

Former India skipper MS Dhoni also moved up owing to a strong showing against Australia last month, which fetched him the player of the series award. Dhoni has moved up three places to 17th position in the batting list for a run, which included three consecutive half-centuries against Australia.

Kedar Jadhav (up eight places to 35th) is another one to advance for India in the list led by Kohli.

New Zealand fast bowler Trent Boult surged to third in the rankings for bowlers after finishing with 12 wickets in the series against India, which culminated in Wellington on Sunday with a 4-1 victory for the visiting side.

In team Rankings, New Zealand have slipped behind South Africa to fourth place. Nepal now have a full ranking after crossing the threshold of eight matches and are now tied with the UAE at 15 points with their 2-1 win but marginally behind on decimals.
