Bangladesh all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan returned to the top 10 of the ICC ODI bowling rankings as he leaped two places to 10th.

Shakib is back inside the top 10 and Sri Lanka spinner Maheesh Theekshana (up five spots to 15th) also makes good ground, with Australia duo Josh Hazlewood (first) and Mitchell Starc (second) still out in front in a competitive rankings list for bowlers.

There was also plenty of movement on the latest T20I rankings following the completion of an exciting series between South Africa and Australia in Durban and the first three matches between England and New Zealand.

South Africa captain Aiden Markram moves up one place to equal third on the list for T20I batters and four spots to fourth for all-rounders following his efforts on home soil, while Australia counterpart Mitchell Marsh makes a move of 14 rungs to 11th for batters following his Player of the Series exploits.

A pair of India young guns have reached new career-high ratings and made ground on the No.1 ranked batter in the world Babar Azam on the latest ODI Batting Rankings.

While Babar still holds a significant at the head of the ODI batter rankings, both Shubman Gill and Ishan Kishan have made inroads on the Pakistan skipper following their impressive starts to the ongoing Asia Cup 2023.

Gill hit an unbeaten 67* during India's must-win clash against Nepal and moved up to a career-high rating of 750 rating points as a result and third-place on the ODI batter rankings less than one month out from the start of the ICC Men's Cricket World Cup.
