Indian skipper Virat Kohli has retained the top spot in the batsmen’s ICC ODI rankings, while England’s Johnny Bairstow managed to make it to the top 10 due to his brilliant performance against Australia in the recently concluded white ball series. Kohli (871 points) and vice-captain Rohit Sharma (855 points, second ranking) have not been playing cricket for some time due to the break caused by Kovid-19 but they have retained their place in the rankings.
