The ICC released the latest ODI rankings amid the World Cup on Wednesday (October 25). India's opening batsman Shubman Gill is close to reaching the first position. The lead of Pakistan captain Babar Azam, who is on top in the ODI batting rankings, has reduced to only six rating points. Shubman, who is in excellent form, has reached close to him. Despite scoring 157 runs in five innings in the current World Cup, Babar's rating points have declined.
Gill, on the other hand, has scored 95 runs in just three matches for India. On the basis of his innings of 53 runs against Bangladesh in Pune, right-handed batsman Gill has reached 823 rating points. He is not the only player to come close to Babar's top ranking. South Africa's left-handed opener batsman Quinton de Kock has also come close. De Kock has made a great start in the World Cup and has scored three centuries.
De Kock's teammate Heinrich Klaasen gained seven places. He has come to fourth place. This is his best ranking in ODIs so far. At the same time, India's experienced batsman Virat Kohli and Australia's opener David Warner have also benefited. Virat has jumped three places and Warner has jumped two places. Both have jointly reached the fifth position. New Zealand batsman Daryl Mitchell has made a huge jump of 16 places and has come at number 13.
