Indian opening batsman Rohit Sharma is amongst the biggest gainer in International Cricket Council rankings after a successful One-Day International series against Australia.

Sharma notched 296 runs from five games at an average of 59.20 that included a century and a couple of fifties in the final three games that has seen him climb four spots to the fifth position in the batsmen rankings that is topped by Indian skipper Virat Kohli.

Sharma's opening partner, Ajinkya Rahane, who slammed four consecutive half-centuries has also climbed four places to 24th position while Australian openers David Warner and Aaron Finch are at second and 17th respectively with the latter climbing nine spots.

Australian all-rounder Marcus Stoinis also gained 20 places to 54th position following his consistent performances in the series.

Jason Roy (up seven places to 30th), Jonny Bairstow (up 48 places to 40th) and Moeen Ali (up 18 places to 56th) of England, and the Windies pair of Jason Holder (up 11 places to 73rd) and Evin Lewis (up 31 places to 78th) are the other batsmen to show some progress in the ODI series between England and West Indies.

Australia fast bowler Josh Hazlewood has lost his pole position in the ranking list after missing the series with an injury allowing Imran Tahir to regain his top position.

Akshar Patel has reached his career best position seventh while there were also upward moments for other Indian spinners Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav.
