As the world’s best ODI batsman for more than two years, India’s Shubman Gill dethroned Pakistan captain Babar Azam on Wednesday by taking the top spot in the most recent ICC men’s batting rankings. Due to his strong start to India’s World Cup 2023 campaign, Gill overtook Babar and became the fourth player in his country to occupy the top spot among ODI batters, behind Virat Kohli, MS Dhoni, and Sachin Tendulkar.

The right-hander, who has been putting pressure on Babar for some time, scored 23 runs against South Africa and 92 against Sri Lanka in the past week and has 219 runs from six innings thus far in the competition. Gill’s dengue infection prevented him from playing in India’s opening two tournament matches against Australia and Afghanistan.

In contrast, Babar has amassed 282 runs from eight knockouts throughout the World Cup. The veteran Pakistani player is now in second place, six rating points behind Gill. With a rating point of 830, Gill is now ranked second after Babar (824) and Quinton de Kock (771), both from South Africa.

There was more positive news for India than Gill’s ascent. Due to his outstanding performance during the World Cup, legendary batter Virat Kohli broke over the top five. Mohammed Siraj’s ten wickets at the World Cup propelled him to the top of the ODI bowler rankings.

Due to strong World Cup performances, there was a significant reorganisation within the top 10 ODI lists for both bowling and batting, and it is not surprising that India’s plethora of players have left the biggest mark.

With his 543 runs in the World Cup, Kohli shot up three spots to fourth, and within one rating point of third-place de Kock.
