Jasprit Bumrah Loses Top Spot In Latest ICC Rankings

Team India fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah has lost his pinnacle spot in the latest released ICC ODI Rankings for bowlers after a poor run in the three-match series against New Zealand. On the other hand, skipper Virat Kohli has retained his top spot after a disappointing series. 

The talismanic run-scorer endured a rare failure with the bat amassing just 75 runs in the three-match ODI series against New Zealand which concluded on Tuesday with India losing all the three games in a row. Virat Kohli is followed by Rohit Sharma who had to miss the New Zealand ODIs with an injury. On the other hand, Ross Taylor has moved upwards by a spot following his man of the series performance and is currently placed at the fourth spot.

Meanwhile, on the bowler's chart, New Zealand's Trent Boult, who is still nursing his injury, has replaced Jasprit Bumrah to be the top-ranked bowler in the latest rankings. Bumrah returned wicketless for the first time since making his international debut 167 runs in the 30 overs he bowled. The Indian pacer is followed by Afghanistan's Mujeeb ur Rehman, Kagiso Rabada and Pat Cummins.

Ravindra Jadeja, meanwhile, has made a jump of three places and moved to the seventh spot. Jadeja scored 63 runs in the two innings and also picked up two wickets. Afghanistan's Mohammad Nabi continues to occupy the top spot.
