Siraj is World No 1 bowler in ODIs!


NL Corresspondent

fast bowler Mohammad Siraj has reclaimed the No 1 position among bowlers in the MRF Tyres ICC men's ODI player rankings after his sensational haul of 6/21 against Sri Lanka in the Asia Cup final in Colombo.

Siraj, who first grabbed the top position in January this year and was displaced by Josh Hazlewood in March, has surged eight spots after his memorable performance that helped dismiss the hosts for just 50 runs and enabled India to complete a 10-wicket victory.

South Africa spinner Keshav Maharaj is another big mover in the latest weekly update that comes just over a fortnight ahead of the Cup 2023 and considers performances in the last two matches of the South Africa vs Australia series and the England vs New Zealand series apart from the Asia Cup.

Maharaj, who helped South Africa become just the fifth team to win a five-match ODI series after losing the first two matches, had figures of 4/33 in the final match that helped him finish with eight wickets in the series and reach 15th position, 10 places above his previous career best. The other bowlers to move up the rankings include Afghanistan spinners Mujeeb-ur Rahman (up two places to fourth) and Rashid Khan (up three places to fifth). England all rounder Chris Woakes is up to 11th place while South Africa's Lungi Ngidi is in 21st position.

South Africa's Heinrich Klaasen and England's Dawid Malan are big movers in the batting charts. Klaasen's cracking 174 against Australia in Centurion has lifted him into the top 10 for the first time while Malan is at a career-best 13th position after scoring 277 runs in the three matches he played in the series.
