ICC ODI Rankings Babar Azam Number 1 : A new ranking has been released by ICC. Once again, tremendous upheavals and changes are being seen in it. The special thing is that Team India’s star opener Shubman Gill, who occupied the number one position during the recently played ODI World Cup, is no longer the number one batsman in ODIs. Former Pakistan captain Babar Azam has again taken the number one position. The interesting thing is that Shubman Gill has not played a single ODI match since the World Cup. Similar is the condition of Babar Azam.

Babar Azam again became the number one batsman in ICC ODI rankings, Shubman Gill reached second place.

In the new ODI rankings released by ICC, Babar Azam has become the number one batsman. His rating is 824. Even when the rankings were released last week, his rating was the same, but suddenly Shubman Gill’s rating has fallen. Shubman Gill’s rating was 826 last week, which has now come down to 810. That means Babar Azam has not only become number one, but he has also left Shubman Gill behind by a good margin. Now the question is how did Shubman’s rating fall? Actually, Pakistan has not played any ODI match during this period. That’s why Babar Azam’s rating is the same as it was. But the Indian team has played two ODI matches against South Africa and Shubman Gill has not played. If the team plays and the player does not play, his rating automatically drops. This is the reason why Shubman Gill, who was ahead of Babar Azam by two rating points, is now 14 points behind. Now Shubman Gill will not play even in the third ODI, so his rating will fall further in the coming weeks.

Virat Kohli is at third position and Rohit Sharma is at fourth position.

After this, if we talk about Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli, then the ratings of both of them have also fallen, but even after this, Virat Kohli is at number three and Rohit Sharma is at number four. Virat Kohli’s rating was earlier 791, which has now come down to 775. He is at number three. Rohit Sharma’s rating was earlier 769, which has now come down to 754. David Warner’s rating is the same as before, at 745, he remains at number five.

David Malan and Heinrich Klaasen also remain in top 10

New Zealand batsman Daryl Mitchell remains at number six with a rating of 743. At number seven is Irish batsman Harry Tactor. South African batsman Rossy Van der Dussen’s rating was earlier 735 and he was at number seven, his rating has now come down to 717 and he has lost one place. David Malan of England is at number 9 with a rating of 707. South Africa’s Heinrich Klaasen has reached number ten with a rating of 705, which was earlier at ninth position.
