Indian captain Virat Kohli has regained the top of the ICC ODI rankings for batsmen after logging career-high rating points, going past the iconic Sachin Tendulkar in the process. The 28-year-old batsman, who scored 263 runs in the New Zealand series, has reached 889 points, which is the best ever by an India batsman.
Kohli had lost the top spot 10 days ago to South African batsman AB de Villiers. Rohit Sharma’s 174 runs in the series saw him reach a career-high rating of 799 points, though he remains in seventh position. Former captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni has risen one place to 11th in the rankings.
Fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah has reached a career-best third after finishing with six wickets in the series against New Zealand. The list for bowlers continues to be led by Pakistan pace bowler Hasan Ali.
