A chance for India to get the status of no. 1 in ODI


(G.N.S) Dt. 30
The No. 1 ODI status will be on the line when second-placed India and table-topper South Africa clash in a six-match series which starts in Durban on Thursday.
The Virat Kohli-led India can top the ODI table if it wins the series by 4-2 or better, while to retain the top spot, South Africa will just have to draw the series.
However, India will slip behind third-placed England by a fraction of a point if South Africa win the series by 5-1 or better.
Meanwhile, India captain Virat Kohli continues to lead the ICC ODI Player Rankings for batsmen with 876 points, just above South Africa’s A.B. de Villiers (872). Australia’s David Warner is placed third with 823 points followed by Rohit Sharma (816), Pakistan’s Babar Azam (813).
M. S. Dhoni has slipped a place to the 13th spot just above another Indian Shikhar Dhawan.
Amongst the bowlers, Indian pacer Jasprit Bumrah (728 points) is static at the third spot behind leader Imran Tahir (743) of South Africa and New Zealand’s Trent Boult (729).
Left-arm spinner Axar Patel is the only other Indian to feature in the top 10 at the 10th spot with 643 points.
