MS Dhoni rises in ODI rankings

MS Dhoni rises in ODI rankings

India might have lost the One-Day international (ODI) series against South Africa but skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni has climbed up two places to the sixth place in the latest International Cricket Council (ICC) batsmen rankings released.

Dhoni now holds an 11-point advantage over his teammate Shikhar Dhawan. The jump for India’s limited overs skipper was due to some of his scores which included an unbeaten 92 runs and an innings of 47.

There were also gains for Rohit Sharma (up three places to 12th) and career-high gains for Ajinkya Rahane (up 11 to 27th). Right-handed batsman Rahane scored 247 runs during the lost series.

A number of Proteas batsmen have improved their rankings. Skipper AB de Villiers retains his number one ranking, and is now 96 points clear of India vice-captain Virat Kohli in second place, after scoring three centuries (104 not out, 112 and 119) in five matches. Hashim Amla has dropped three places to fifth.
