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.

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.
