Kohli has held on to the No 1 spot for ODI batsmen following scores of 75, 45 and 71 in India’s 1-2 series loss to top-ranked England; while this only gave him two ratings points, it took him to 911 which is the highest since Dean Jones reached 918 in 1991.

Gaining 34 points to move to second behind Kohli in the ODI batsmen rankings was Joe Root, courtesy successive centuries to help England rally from 0-1 down to claim the series. Root is now one point behind his personal best of 819 points, achieved earlier this year.

Kuldeep has vaulted into the top ten for ODI bowlers after claiming nine wickets in three matches , which included a career-best 6/25 at Trent Bridge, which is also the best for a left-arm spinner in ODIs. Kuldeep gained eight spots to occupy sixth place, five behind India team-mate Jasprit Bumrah.
