Virat Kohli retains No.1 Ranking
India's batting sensation Virat Kohli has earned the No.1 spot in the ICC ODI Rankings for batsmen after his supreme run of form in the ongoing New Zealand series.
Kohli, who was ranked 2nd before the series, has already shown glimpses of his form with a century and a fifty so far. Scores of 123 and 78 in successive ODIs has resulted in the Delhi lad getting his top spot back.
Kohli collected 882 Rating points after the 2nd ODI, but dropped a few after his dismissal in the 3rd game at Auckland. He is now the joint No.1 batsman alongside RCB mate AB de Villiers, at 872. With 2 more matches to go in the series and South Africa not scheduled to play in the meanwhile, Kohli has a good chance of an outright top rank.
