The top ODI spots in ICC ranking are dominated by South Africa players. Lately, Kagiso Rabada, the young paceman from South Africa clinched the top spot on the chart of best ODI bowlers. The No. 1 bowler in ODI has replaced Imran Tahir on the spot, another bowler from South Africa squad. Tahir is the top bowler in ICC T20 charts. South Africa lost the series to England, but it was where Rabada reached the top charts. Before the series, he was fifth.
Playing three ODIs, Rabada crossed four spots for the zenith. In the series, he finished as the top wicket-taker with seven scalps at an economy of 21.71. His four wickets in the last ODI was a match winning stance. His attack slogged England to 20 for 6, the worst ODI stretch for the team. With an economy of 5.42, Rabada emerged as the best bet for South Africa. His overall economy is 5.13. The player debuted in July 2015 playing 36 ODIs since the first match. He totaled 64 wickets at an average of 24.90.
South Africa is the team with top players in ICC ODI charts. This is a strong bonus for the upcoming Champions Trophy. It has four best batsmen in the chart and the two top bowlers. AB de Villiers, Quinton de Kock, Faf du Plessis and Hashim Amla tops the batsmen list. Amla and de Kock moved to second and third from Number 6 and Number 4.
Apart from individual player ratings, Champions Trophy will impact on team rankings as well. Presently, South Africa at the top is followed by Australia on second. India, New Zealand, and England follows next. South Africa should win at least a match to keep on up with its rank. As the teams following are with not much difference in points. Another new change on the ranking is for Bangladesh, which passed Sri Lanka to nick the sixth position. Three teams behind Bangladesh are Sri Lanka, Pakistan, and West Indies.
