Tillakaratne Dilshan has now become the number-one ranked all-rounder in the world following his 229 runs with the bat and three wickets with the ball to date. His form has helped him gain three places in the latest Reliance ICC Player Rankings for All-rounders and he now leads Bangladesh’s second-ranked Shakib Al Hasan by 10 ratings points. Angelo Mathews is the third in the list.
Meanwhile Kumar Sangakkara is the leading run-getter to date in cricket’s biggest spectacle with 268 runs and this is reflected in the latest Reliance ICC Player Rankings for ODI Batsmen. The left-hander has moved up two places to join South Africa’s Hashim Amla in second place.
The batting table is headed by South Africa captain AB de Villiers. He is just two ratings points short of becoming only the 11th batsman to break the 900-point barrier since the introduction of the current ODI player rankings system. (ICC)
