Shakib reclaims No.1 spot in ODI rankings
Bangladesh all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan has taken the number one position in ICC ODI all-rounder rankings after the recent update.
The ICC updated ODI rankings after the conclusion of Pakistan vs Zimbabwe series which ended in a dramatic fashion where Zimbabwe won in the Super Over to gain 10 points on Cricket World Cup Super League table.
The update sees Shakib taking the throne from Afghan all-rounder Mohammad Nabi, who is 72 points from the No.1 man. Shakib is on 373 points in the all-rounder rankings after losing 21 points during his 12-month suspension period.
Englishmen Chris Woakes, Ben Stokes and Pakistani Imad Wasim are among top five. Sean Williams enters the top ten list after an unbeaten 118* against Pakistan in the tied ODI in Rawalpindi.
Shakib has been included in the ODI batting and bowling rankings where he is placed among the top 30. He is tied on 663 points at 21 with his countryman Tamim Iqbal and Aussie Steve Smith in the batting rankings.
Shakib is placed 28th with 563 points in the bowling rankings.
Bangladesh have not played an ODI since March. They are scheduled to play three ODIs each against West Indies at home and New Zealand (away) in January and March 2021 respectively.
The ace all-rounder missed only six ODIs since the 2019 World Cup. He was rested for three-ODI tour in Sri Lanka in August last year.
