India captain Rohit Sharma has made a huge gain ahead of India's fourth World Cup contest against Bangladesh. The Men in Blue's charge into the ICC World Cup 2023 has started on a high note as they have made merry of the first three matches in the tournament. The hosts have defeated everyone that has come to their disposal so far, amassing three in three wins in the marquee event. While the batters are looking on song, the Indian bowlers are looking to stay no step behind the willow holders. 

Captain Rohit Sharma has meanwhile made some big strides in the recently released ICC ODI rankings. Sharma, who was in 11th place last week, has moved five spots up to now rank 6th in the batters' chart with 719 rating points to his name. However, Virat Kohli has dropped down a bit as per the latest weekly rankings. Kohli has gone down from 7th to joint-eight in the tally as he is now levelled with England's Dawid Malan on 711 ratings.

Sharma produced another breathtaking performance in the World Cup when he smashed 86 runs in 63 balls against arch-rivals Pakistan. Meanwhile, Kohli did not had the best of the outings as he made 16 runs from 18 balls.
