ICC ODI Rankings: Shubman Gill Achieves Career Best; Rohit, Kohli Also in Top 10, Have a look..
Rohit Sharma, who is also an opener and is the captain of the Indian team, and Virat Kohli, who used to be the leader, are also in the top 10 of the list. They are in positions 9 and 8, respectively.
Gill has been in great shape this year and has been a key part of India's path to the Asia Cup 2023 final. The men in blue cruised into the final match in Colombo after beating Pakistan and the hosts Sri Lanka in the Super 4 round.
Gill got his first fifty of the 2023 version of the continental tournament with an unbeaten 67-run knock against Nepal in the group stage. In the Super 4 of the tournament, he added 58 runs against archrivals Pakistan.
His opening stand with Rohit, who made 56 runs himself, was the rock on which India's innings was built. Kohli hit a stunning 122 runs without being out, which moved him up the rankings table.
Sharma followed up his big hit against Pakistan with another half-century against Sri Lanka on Tuesday, leading the team to win from the front.
The last time India had three batters in the top 10 was in January 2019. Rohit, Kohli, and Shikhar Dhawan, a batsman who likes to do things his own way, were all there.
The top batter is Babar Azam from Pakistan. Imam-ul-Haq and Fakhar Zaman are also from Pakistan and are ranked fifth and tenth, respectively.
David Warner, an Australian starter, moved up one spot and is now in fourth place. Rassie Van Der Dussen, a South African, is in third place, right above Warner.
Quinton de Kock, who plays for South Africa on the world team, is in seventh place, behind the Irish batsman Harry Tector.
