Jadeja moves up to career-best third in Reliance ICC ODI bowling rankings

Dubai, June 24 (ANI): India's Ravindra Jadeja made all-round gains in the latest Reliance ICC ODI Player Rankings released on Monday, a day after India beat England by five runs in the final of the ICC Champions Trophy 2013.

Jadeja, who made an unbeaten 33 and picked two for 24 in the final, was named Man of the Match. His haul of 12 wickets in the tournament also made him the highest wicket-taker, fetching him the Golden Ball trophy.

Jadeja's efforts helped him move up a place to a career-best third in the latest Reliance ICC ODI Player Rankings for Bowlers.

Jadeja also moved up three places to 52nd in the batting table. His combined effort with the bat and ball helped him move up a place to a best-ever third in the latest all-rounders' rankings.

India off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin has also made a return to the top 10 of the bowlers' list, having jumped six places to ninth.

The others to make upward movements include Angelo Mathews in 22nd (up by three), James Tredwell in 28th (up by 15), Stuart Broad in 30th (up by two), Bhuvaneshwar Kumar in 49th (up by three) and Ishant Sharma in 51st (up by five).

The bowlers' list is still headed by West Indies' Sunil Narine with Pakistan spinner Saeed Ajmal in second place.

Meanwhile, in the Reliance ICC ODI Player Rankings for Batsmen, England batsman Jonathan Trott moved up a place to fourth. Trott scored 229 runs from five games to end as the second highest run-getter in the tournament. The batting list continues to be headed by South Africa captain AB de Villiers, with teammate Hashim Amla in second place and India's Virat Kohli in third position.

India opener Shikhar Dhawan, who ended the tournament as the highest run-getter after scoring 363 runs, has jumped 21 places to a career-best 29th. Dhawan's efforts with the bat not only fetched him the Player of the Tournament award but also earned him the Golden Bat trophy for scoring the most runs of the tournament.

Others to make upward movements include Mahela Jayawardene in 21st (up by three) and Angelo Mathews in 41st (up by one).

Meanwhile, India's triumphant run in the ICC Champions Trophy 2013 has helped it strengthen its position as the number-one ranked team on the Reliance ICC ODI Championship Table.

India entered the tournament on 119 ratings points and has moved to 123 thanks to its victories over South Africa, West Indies and Pakistan in the group stage, followed by wins over Sri Lanka in the semi-final and host England in the final.

India now has a lead of 10 ratings points over its nearest rival, England, which is currently on 113, level with third-placed Australia. But Alastair Cook's side is ranked above Michael Clarke's team by a fraction of a point.

South Africa continues to be ranked fourth with a loss of one ratings points (111) following its loss in the semi-final to England. Sri Lanka is still at fifth but has also lost one ratings point to finish at 108. (ANI)
