Shakib regains top spot on ICC Rankings

KKR all-rounder overtakes RR’s Watson in ODI Rankings

Kolkata Knight Riders’ Shakib Al Hasan has returned to the top spot of the ICC ODI Rankings for all-rounders with brilliant performances in the recently concluded 2012 Asia Cup in Mirpur, Bangladesh. Shakib has replaced Australian and Rajasthan Royals star Shane Watson at the top of the list.

The Bangladeshi left-hander scored 237 runs in the tournament. This performance has also put him on a career-best 12th spot in the batsman rankings. His six wickets have brought him down one rung to No. 8 on the best bowlers list.

Delhi Daredevils’ new signing Andre Russell and Mumbai Indians star Kieron Pollard have also improved on their previous rankings on the all-rounders list that was updated on Monday, March 26.

In the batsman rankings, India and Chennai Super Kings’ skipper MS Dhoni has moved up one place to No. 4. MI captain Sachin Tendulkar (No. 27), CSK star Suresh Raina (No. 32) and DD’s fiery opener David Warner (No. 43) have also improved on their rankings.

On the bowlers list, India and CSK off-spinner R Ashwin has climbed six rungs to No. 4. He picked up five wickets in the Asia Cup. Watson’s 11 wickets in the ODI series against West Indies have helped him to the 17th spot – an improvement by nine places.
