Bumrah loses top spot in ODI rankings

India speedster Jasprit Bumrah lost the top spot but all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja climbed three rungs to grab the seventh position in the ICC ODI rankings released on Wednesday.

Bumrah, who went wicketless in India’s 3-0 loss to New Zealand, was placed in the second position with 719 points in the bowling chart.

Big jump

Leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal, who snapped six wickets in the series, jumped to 13th spot even as chinaman bowler Kuldeep Yadav slipped to the 16th.

Kiwi pacer Trent Boult, despite missing the limited over series against India due to a broken hand, moved to the top of the bowling chart after Bumrah slipped.

Jadeja, who took two wickets and scored 63 runs in the series against New Zealand, moved to the seventh spot with 246 points in the all-rounders’ list which saw Afghanistan’s Mohammad Nabi emerge as the new World No. 1. In the batting chart, India skipper Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma continue to hold on to the top two positions respectively.
