ICC ODI Bowling Rankings: Indian pacer Jasprit Bumrah has become the top bowler in ICC’s recently released ODI rankings for his good performance with the ball against England.
Bumrah took 6 wickets for 19 runs in the first ODI against England. This pacer grabbed the top spot with 718 points straight from number four. New Zealand’s left-handed fast bowler Trent Boult has dropped to second place due to Bumrah’s rise to the top spot.
Currently, Bolt is in second place with 712 ratings. Pakistan’s left-handed fast bowler Shaheen Shah Afridi moved from second to third place with 681 points.
Bumrah lost the top spot to New Zealand’s Trent Boult in February 2020 after being No.1 for most of the past two years.
Bumrah is the second Indian fast bowler after Kapil Dev to be at number one in the ODI rankings. Maninder Singh, Anil Kumble, and Rabindra Jadeja are other Indian bowlers who have reached the top rankings in the past.
