The biggest mover on the ODI bowler in updated rankings is Bangladesh pacer Mustafizur Rahman, who moves up six places to equal 10th overall, while left-arm spinner Taijul Rahman has advanced to 18 steps.

He is joint 10th with Chris Woakes of England with 640 rating points. Taijul's position with 469 points is his career-best 53rd.

Mustafiz bowled brilliantly to avoid a whitewash in Harare against Zimbabwe. He got 4 wickets for just 17 runs bowling 5.2 overs.

Mustafizur finished as the joint leading wicket-taker during Bangladesh's recent series against Zimbabwe and the 26-year-old was rewarded with a big leap inside the top 10.

Mustafiz's career-best position in the ranking is fifth, which he climbed in December 2018.

Meanwhile, Hazlewood also improves a spot to third on the latest rankings for ODI bowlers, with Pakistan pacer Shaheen Afridi dropping two spots to fifth after he missed the opening match against the Netherlands.
