Ashwin Moves to 4th in ODI Rankings

Dubai: Indian off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin has moved up by two places to fourth in the latest ICC One-day Rankings for bowlers while skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni has dropped a place to sixth.

Ashwin is the only Indian player in the top-20 in the bowlers' list while in the chart for the batsmen, India have two players with Virat Kohli retaining number two spot.

Meanwhile, India remained unchanged at number three position in the team list, headed by England and followed by South Africa.

India have 120 points while both England and the Proteas have 121. When ratings points are calculated to within the decimal point, South Africa trails England by a mere 0.09 ratings point.

England will hold the position until at least January 2013, when it travels to India for a five-match ODI series.

Meanwhile, Pakistan off-spinner Saeed Ajmal has replaced teammate Mohammad Hafeez as the number-one ranked bowler.

Saeed was the highest wicket-taker in the recent series against Australia. He picked 10 wickets at an economy rate of 3.41 with an average of 9.9 in the series.

Hafeez slipped to second position in the bowlers' table but moved up a place to second in the Rankings for all-rounders with a career-best rating of 413.

South Africa paceman Lonwabo Tsotsobe, who headed the bowlers' table before the two series began, is now ranked third.
