Bangladesh stand-in ODI captain Litton Das has moved up three places to 38th in the ICC ODI ranking after aggregating 92 runs in the series while Shakib Al Hasan is back in the top 10 for bowlers.

Shakib advanced three steps in the ranking with 4 wickets in 3 ODIs against Afghanistan. The left-arm spinner returned to the top ten in bowling in the ODI rankings.

Shakib's position is now number ten with 618 rating points.

Taskin Ahmed, who took 3 wickets in two matches with 2 for 23 in the last ODI of the series, moved up five steps as he is placed on 45th.

Rashid Khan is three steps ahead at number four. The Afghan leg-spinner took 4 wickets in his first two matches against Bangladesh but was rested in the last game.

Meanwhile, Litton has improved by three steps in batting. He scored fifty in the last match of the series but scored only 92 runs in the three ODIs. Litton is joint 38th with Scott Edwards of Netherlands with 577 rating points.

Shakib's batting has improved by one step and Tamim Iqbal has decreased by one step as Tamim is now at 33rd and Shakib is 34th.

Australia batter Travis Head has overtaken team-mates Steve Smith and Marnus Labuschagne to grab a career-best second position in the ICC Men’s Test Player Rankings.

Head’s scores of 39 and 77 in the third match of their ICC World Test Championship series against England at Headingly have taken him to within nine points of Kane Williamson’s 883 rating points even as the batting rankings continue to be volatile at the top with five of the top seven featuring in the ongoing Ashes series.
