Wednesday, 29 October 2014 - 14:48
Virat Kohli has slipped a rung but is still the best-placed Indian batsman at third position in the latest ICC ODI batsmen's rankings list released here on Tuesday.
Kohli, who has lost a place following South African Hashim Amla's upward movement, will have a chance to climb up the ladder once again when he takes to the field against Sri Lanka in the five-match ODI series, commencing on November 2.
Only two ratings points separate the second and third ranked batsmen in the table, which is headed by South Africa's AB de Villiers.
India skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni is steady at number six but Shikhar Dhawan has lost a place to be ninth.
In the bowlers' list, India's Ravindra Jadeja and Bhuvneshwar Kumar remain at sixth and seventh positions, respectively. Pakistan's Saeed Ajmal maintains his number one spot in the chart.
