Dhoni reclaims No 1 ranking, India No 2 ODI side again

60

Dubai: Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni on June 21 regained the number-one batting position while his team returned to the second spot in the ICC ODI Championship after back-to-back victories in the ongoing Asia Cup in Sri Lanka.

Dhoni, who had started the tournament in third place trailing number-one ranked Michael Hussey of Australia by eight ratings points, scored 38 not out against Bangladesh and 56 against Pakistan.

These match-winning efforts, combined with Hussey’s batting  failure with the bat against Ireland in Dublin last week, has helped the India captain to jump two places to regain top spot while the Australian left-hander has been pushed down two places to third.

India’s successive victories in the Asia Cup also ensured that it returns to number-two position in the ICC ODI Championship.
