Opener Rohit Sharma made significant strides up the order as he jumped seven places to be joint 12th with Australian swashbuckler Steve Smith and Pakistan’s Misbah-ul-Haq. Rohit scored 330 runs in the tournament.

Australia retained the ODI Shield and won $175,000 after finishing as the number-one ranked side on the April 1 cut-off date. India collected $75,000 for finishing second in the team rankings. Among the bowlers, Australia’s Mitchell Starc has surged to the top for the first time in his career following a stellar performance in the World Cup that also fetched him the player of the tournament award.

The 25-year-old left-arm fast bowler finished ICC’s pinnacle 50-over tournament as joint-leading wicket-taker with New Zealand’s Trent Boult (22 wickets), including two for 20 in eight overs in the final against New Zealand.

This performance has helped Starc to rise two places and claim the number-one position for the first time. Starc had entered World Cup in seventh position and during the course of the tournament, he gained 147 ratings points. He currently sits on 783 rating points, which is also his career-best rating and was achieved during the final played in front of over 93,000 spectators. India’s Umesh Yadav have broken into the top 20 for the first time in his career to be placed at 15th spot.
