Vettori back on top of rankings in bowlers Rank table

Daniel Vettori
Daniel Vettori has regained the No.1 spot in the ODI bowling rankings after leading New Zealand to a 2-1 series win against Pakistan in Abu Dhabi. Vettori jumps back to the top-spot he lost in March this year by replacing team-mate Kyle Mills, who slips four places.

There are three spinners in an unlikely top-five that includes Shakib Al Hasan, the Bangladesh captain, second and Ray Price, the Zimbabwe spinner, jumping three places to third. Both have enjoyed recent success with Price taking six wickets in the recently concluded 2-0 defeat in South Africa.

MS Dhoni retains his No.1 batting ranking with Michael Hussey strengthening his second spot after both enjoyed a successful ODI series. Dhoni contributed 285 runs in his team's 4-2 loss, while Hussey was the most successful batsman with 313 runs.

Brendon McCullum, the explosive New Zealand opener, enters the top 20 batsmen for the first time, climbing 16 places to claim the 16th spot.
