India Leading ODI Ranking

Although the ICC ODI (One Day International) Championship ranks are not yet finalized, since there are still 100 days to go until the ICC Championship, India is currently heading the list with the most rating points.

India reached the outright lead after England beat New Zealand with a 2 – 1 win. This loss for New Zealand caused the team to lose two rating points, ensuring India the lead. England obtained enough points to keep hold of their number two placing in the ODI ranks.

Australia is currently in the third place, just one point behind England, and South Africa is ranked fourth at the moment, five points behind England.

The cut-off date for the winner, the team that has accumulated the most points in the ICC ODI Championship Table, leaving teams such as Australia and India with the number of points that they have already accumulated, since they have no more ODIs scheduled to be played before the cut-off date in April.

The results are not yet set in stone because South Africa and Pakistan still have a five match series left to play. The five match series starts on 10th March 2013. If South Afirca plays well enough, it will be possible for South Africa to knock both top-ranked India, and second-ranked England out of their current placing.

At this time, the top ranked all-rounder in the ICC Player Rankings, is Mohammad Hafeez, from Pakistan. In second place is Shakib Al Hasan from Bangladesh. Third place of top-ranked players is currently held by Shane Watson from Australia, and fourth place is Angelo Mathews from Sri Lanka. Ravinda Jadeja holds the fifth place at this time.

The top bowlers and batters have also been listed, with R. Ashwin as the top player ranking for ICC ODI bowlers, and Hashim Amla from South Africa currently leading the batting table.
