Virat Kohli & AB de Villiers – The Battle of the Best
RCB captain Virat Kohli, who was earlier leading the race for the top spot in the ICC Player Rankings for ODI Batsmen, dropped 13 points to hand the No.1 ODI batsmen’s tag to his RCB teammate, AB de Villiers.
A cricketer loses 1% of his rating every time he misses a match. Since Kohli decided to opt out of the Bangladesh ODI series, he dropped enough points to give de Villiers, who’s already the top batsman in Tests, a 4-point lead.
With AB set to play in Sri Lanka and Virat to wield his willow in England, we’re in for a thrilling battle between two titans at the top of the rankings table. Either way, it’s a win-win situation if you’re an RCB loyalist!
