ICC Rankings: Virat Kohli's reign in ODIs still prevails, but 'Neighbors' giving challenge to power

Virat Kohli, the captain of the Indian cricket team, is currently preparing for the IPL 2021. His first move in an attempt to take his team Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) to the title for the first time will go up against Mumbai Indians (MI) on 9 April. Whether he will succeed in this or not, it will be known only by the end of next month, but at present, he is the king in ICC Rankings. In the ODI rankings of batsmen from the ICC, Kohli is still at number one position. However, Kohli is trying to shake this chair, Pakistan captain Babar Azam, who has come very close to the Indian captain.

India have not played any international matches since the victory in the ODI series against England. However, despite this, Kohli has maintained his presence at the first number for a long time. His points have definitely fallen slightly, but so far he was far ahead of all the other players. Now Pakistani superstar Babar has come very close to giving him a blow.

Babur 5 points away from Kohli

Virat Kohli still holds the first position in the latest rankings released by the ICC on Wednesday 7 April. He currently holds 857 ranking points. Pakistan captain Babar Azam is at the second place. Babar now has 852 points and he is just 6 points away from leaving Kohli behind.

Babar Azam is currently playing in the ODI series against South Africa. In the first match of this series, Azam won the team by scoring an excellent century. With the help of this century, Babar's rating also jumped.

At the third place is Indian vice-captain Rohit Sharma, for whom the ODI series against England was not good. Rohit currently has 825 points. Apart from these three in the top five, New Zealand veteran Ross Taylor is at number four, while Australian captain Aaron Finch is frozen at the fifth. At the same time, England opener Johnny Bairstow got the benefit of a good series against India and has now come in sixth place.

Fakhar Zaman has tremendous advantage

Pakistani opener Fakhar Zaman has benefited the most in the latest rankings. Fakhar, who played a blistering innings of 193 runs in the second ODI against South Africa, has jumped 7 places to reach 12th position.
