Rohit moves to 5th position in batmen ranking

Posted by

Indian opener Rohit Sharma’s third career double hundred in the recent One day series against Sri Lanka has pushed him up two spots to fifth in the latest ICC ODI Player Rankings among batsmen.

Rohit has crossed the 800-point mark as he ended the three-match ODI series which India won 2 -1 with 816 points.

Even though he has enjoyed a career-high ranking of third in February 2016, he reached a personal high of 825 points after the second match in Mohali when he struck an unbeaten 208, his third ODI double-century.

Rohit’s opening partner Shikhar Dhawan, named player of the series, too has gained one slot to reach 14th position after aggregating 168 runs including an unbeaten 100 in Visakhapatnam. Dhawan had slammed 68 in the second match, figuring in a 115-run opening stand with Rohit.

Virat Kohli, who rested himself from the Sri Lanka series, still leads the batting chart with 876 points, ahead of South African A B de Villiers (872).
