Despite his unbeaten 139 in the Afro Asia Cup final in Chennai, Indian
wicket-keeper batsman Mahendra Singh Dhoni remained in the fourth place
in the latest LG-ICC Player Rankings for ODI batsmen.
Dhoni, who hit the highest-ever ODI score by a number seven batsman in Chennai,
now trails third-placed Michael Hussey of Australia by 10 rating points.
England's Kevin Pietersen still occupies top batting spot with
Australia captain Ricky Ponting in second place.
Sri Lanka opening batsman Sanath Jayasuriya's slide in the rankings
since the ICC Cricket World Cup continues as he has dropped six places
and is now ranked 13th overall.
Jayasuriya's loss means Australia's Andrew Symonds has moved
into the top 10.
South Africa's Shaun Pollock has achieved his
highest career batting rating following his maiden ODI century in the Afro-Asian
Cup played in Bangalore and Chennai last week.
Pollock moves up 12 places and is now in 40th spot in the LG
ICC Player Rankings for ODI batsmen after a brilliant 130 off 110 balls in Bangalore.
Pollock, who played in the series as a specialist batsman following
minor foot surgery, continues to lead the LG ICC Player Rankings for ODI bowlers
as the top 14 places in that category remains unchanged.
Indian spinner Harbhajan Singh, who took four wickets in two
matches, drops two places and he's now ranked 15th overall.
Pollock leads team-mate Jacques Kallis in the LG ICC Player
Rankings for ODI all-rounders table while West Indies' Chris Gayle is
in third place.
