India’s star batter Virat Kohli made a jump in the latest ICC Men’s ODI Players Rankings released on Wednesday. Kohli scored a marvellous century in the 1st ODI against Sri Lanka, that India won by 67 runs. This remarkable performance of Kohli lead him to the 6 no. by moving up 2 spots in the latest rankings. Kohli made 113 off just 87 deleveries in this innings.
Once it was a time when Kohli used to lead the Rankings table and remained no.1 in the ICC ODI World Rankings for a long time. But, since 2019 Kohli’s poor form made him let down in the table but now the king is back in form as the form is temporary but the class is permanent. From the time he came back in form, with his consistently good performances, he is moving ahead in the table. To be expected, Kohli will once touch the top of the table if performed consistently like this.
In the latest ICC Men’s ODI Rankings, Pakistan’s star batter Babar Azam comes at the top and is leading the table with 891 ratings. Other than this, Indian Skipper Rohit Sharma has also gained a spot and has come to 8th position as he also played a massive innings of 83 runs in 1st ODI against Sri lanka.
