Kohli, Dhoni slide down; Shami gains 14 places in ODI
Virat Kohli and Mahendra Singh Dhoni slipped down the ladder to be fourth and 10th respectively, while Shikhar Dhawan retained his seventh spot in the latest ICC ODI batsmen’s rankings released here on Monday.

In the ODI bowlers’ chart, however, India’s Mohammad Shami and Ravichandaran Ashwin made upward movements. While Shami gained as many as 14 places to be at 11th now, Ashwin’s eight wickets in the ongoing cricket World Cup so far helped him climb six spots to 16th. There have been a plenty of reshuffle in the rankings at the end of 23 pool matches in the World Cup, currently being staged in Australia and New Zealand. Kohli has slipped a rung but is still the best-placed Indian batsman at fourth position, while skipper Dhoni has lost two places to be at 10th.

Rohit Sharma and Suresh Raina are the other Indian batsmen to be figuring in the top-20 list. Even though Rohit has lost three places to be at 16th, Raina has climbed up four positions to be at 20th.
