Latest ICC rankings: Babar claims top ODI spot again.
1 0 2 96 0

Babar Azam has replaced Shubman Gill as the No. 1 ODI batter in the world in the latest MRF Tyres ICC Men's Player Rankings. 

The star Pakistan batter taking back the position in less than 45 days after surrendering it. 

Gill, who on 8 November displaced Babar from the top of the ODI rankings for batters, hasn't done much wrong, scoring 135 runs from three innings, including two half-centuries, surprisingly but had to give it up for Babar, who has played just one innings scoring 38 against England at the Eden Gardens. 

Gill still ends the year as the most successful ODI batter, finishing with 1584 runs from 29 matches at an average of 63.36.

With 824 points, Babar is back at 1, followed by Gill at second with 810. Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma have held onto their positions at No. 3 and 4 respectively, while Shreyas Iyer has dropped to 12th. KL Rahul is the only Indian who has climbed up the ladder, securing his place at No. 16. David Warner completes the top five.

Harry Tector from Ireland moves up one place and is now seventh following his 33 against Zimbabwe. The next best-ranked batter from the country in the ODI rankings is Paul Stirling, who is No.28.

A spinner from England has become the newest player to hold top spot for T20I bowlers. 

Adil Rashid has been rewarded for his good consistent form in the Caribbean as he moves up two places and takes the top spot from Afghanistan's Rashid Khan (second) and India's Ravi Bishnoi (third) on the T20I rankings for bowlers as a host of England and West Indies players make their move less than six months out from the start of the ICC Men's T20 World Cup.

Rashid becomes just the second player from England to hold the No.1 ranking for T20I bowlers after off-spinner Graeme Swann held the top spot back more than a decade ago.

It means three different players have held the premier position on the list for T20I bowlers over the last three weeks, with West Indies spinner Akeal Hosein (up three spots to sixth) and South Africa counterpart Tabraiz Shamsi (up three places to ninth) also making eye-catching moves inside the top 10 on a busy day for the rankings.
