ODI rankings: Pak leapfrog to 6
Pakistan on Monday jumped two places to sixth in the ICC ODI team rankings following their title triumph at the Champions Trophy while the finalists India remained at number three.
Pakistan leapfrogged Sri Lanka and Bangladesh to move closer to direct qualification for the 2019 World Cup, for which host England and the next seven highest-ranked sides as on 30 September will get straight entries.
Pakistan gained four points to move to 95 points as their wins over higher-ranked opponents in the tournament included the one in the final against India and an eight-wicket semi- final victory over England.
There were no other changes in the teams standings led by South Africa, although India, England and Bangladesh have all lost a point each.
In the ODI player rankings, India opener Rohit Sharma, who scored 123 not out in the semifinal, has gained three slots to reach 10th position while pace bowlers Bhuvneshwar Kumar (up four places to joint-19th) and Jasprit Bumrah (up 19 places to 24th) are the others to gain.
Pakistan pace bowler Hassan Ali and rookie opener Fakhar Zaman are among those to make huge gains.
Hassan, named player of the tournament after finishing with 13 wickets, has gained 12 positions to reach seventh rank.
