ICC ODI Rankings: De Villiers at top, Kohli at 3rd spot

“I am happy that he is fulfilling his undoubted potential”

“I am happy that he is fulfilling his undoubted potential”

The intense competition in the individual rankings justifies the tournament's name as players from the eight participating teams feature prominently in it and not much separates the top players in the fray.

Fast bowlers Kagiso Rabada and Wayne Parnell snared seven wickets as South Africa bowled England out for just 153 runs after a top-order collapse in their third and final one-day global on Monday.

Kagiso Rabada, South Africa's 22-year-old pace sensation, has leapfrogged team-mate Imran Tahir to become the No. 1 ODI bowler in the world.

India, South Africa and England have four batsmen each inside the top 20 with New Zealand (three), Australia and Pakistan (two each) also having significant presence.

Taiwan becomes first Asian country to recognize same-sex marriage
Over in Australia, same-sex marriage also hasn't yet been legalised, despite findings showing overwhelming public support for it. Taiwan is one step closer to becoming the first place in Asia where same-sex marriage is legal.

Eoin Morgan criticised a grassy Lord's pitch after England slumped to 20 for six en route to a seven-wicket defeat by South Africa in their final game before the Champions Trophy.

South African captain AB de Villiers topped the chart of ODI batsmen's ranking as he was three points ahead of power hitter David Warner who ranked number 2 with 871 points.

Shakib Al Hasan managed to seal top spot in ICC all-rounder rankings, England is the only team to have three players in top-10 all-rounder rankings.

England had taken the opening two matches to secure the series with one game to play but they were unable to make it 3-0 going into the ICC Champions Trophy as their batting collapsed in spectacular fashion.

For example, Australia and India could overtake South Africa by the next rankings update if they win all their three league matches and South Africa loses all its three matches. Bangladesh once reached to sixth position leaving Sri Lanka West Indies and Pakistan behind.
