Miraz, Tamim earn gains in rankings
Bangladesh all-rounder Mehedi Hasan Miraz and Tamim Iqbal saw improvements in their rankings following the Tigers' convincing victory in the first ODI of their three-match series against West Indies in Guyana last Sunday.
In the latest set of rankings released by the ICC on Wednesday, all-rounder Miraz moved one place up and is now ranked sixth in the rankings for bowlers in ODIs. With a rating point of 675, Miraz is also the highest-ranked Bangladeshi player in the ranking list for ODI bowlers.
Miraz, who won the player of the match award for his three-for in the first ODI against West Indies, has also moved two spots up in the ODI all-rounder rankings. He is now ranked ninth in the ODI all-rounder rankings with a rating point of 238.
Meanwhile, Bangladesh ODI skipper Tamim moved up a spot to 19 in the ODI batting list after his swift 33-run knock against the Windies last Sunday.
However, Mushfiqur Rahim, who is skipping the Windies series for performing Hajj pilgrimage, is the highest ranked Bangladeshi ODI batter. Despite not playing in the Tigers' ongoing ODI series, Mushfiqur jumped a spot up to 16 in the ODI batters' rankings.
On the other hand, India quick Jasprit Bumrah has claimed top spot on the bowler rankings from New Zealand pacer Trent Boult after his match-winning spell of 6/19 in the opening match of the three-game ODI series against England at The Oval on Tuesday.
