Mohammed Siraj slips to third spot in ICC ODI rankings | Cricket News – Times of India

NEW DELHI: Star Indian pacer Mohammed Siraj slipped to third spot after Australia’s Josh Hazlewood displaced him from the top spot in the latest ICC ODI rankings for bowlers on Wednesday.
Siraj has slipped behind Hazlewood and New Zealand’s Trent Boult after India’s 10-wicket loss to Australia in Visakhapatnam.
Hazlewood, whose career best second position was attained for the first time in June 2017 and which he had kept since August 2022, is No. 1 in ODIs for the first time.
Australian paceman Mitchell Starc’s eight wickets in the two matches against India also see him go to joint-third position with Siraj.
Siraj, who returned with impressive figures of 3/29 to help India win the first ODI against Australia, was expensive in the second ODI giving away 37 runs in three overs and consequently lost his position as the top-ranked bowler.
Other bowlers to move up the ODI rankings include West Indies’ Alzarri Joseph (up eight places to 11th), India’s Mohammad Shami (up five places to 28th) and Netherlands’ Fred Klaasen (up 22 places to 52nd).


In the ODI rankings among batters, India’s Shubman Gill and Virat Kohli remained fifth and seventh respectively, while captain Rohit Sharma moved up one place to ninth.
KL Rahul‘s unbeaten 75, which helped India recover from a poor start and win the first ODI by five wickets, helped him move up three places to get to the 39th spot.
New Zealand’s Kane Williamson moved up to the second spot among batters in Test cricket following his dominant show with the bat against Sri Lanka.
With his sixth double ton in Tests, Williamson is now just one behind Kohli (seven) as players with most scores over 200.
Australia’s Marnus Labuschagne remains the top ranked batter in Test cricket.
New Zealand’s left-handed batter Henry Nicholls, who made 200 not out in the Wellington Test and was involved in a massive 363-run stand with Williamson, jumped up 20 spots to reach 27th.
Sri Lanka captain Dimuth Karunaratne occupies the 10th spot.
