Babar Azam, the captain of the Pakistan cricket team, has lost his position as the top-ranked ODI (One Day International) batsman according to the latest ICC (International Cricket Council) Men’s Batting Rankings.
This change in rankings comes after a period of over two years during which Babar Azam held the top spot. The new leader in the rankings is Shubman Gill, a talented emerging player from the Indian cricket team.
Shubman Gill made a significant impact during the World Cup tournament, where he showcased his batting prowess and consistently scored runs. This impressive performance helped him secure the top spot in the ICC Men’s Batting Rankings for ODI cricket.
Notably, by reaching the number one position in the batting rankings, Shubman Gill joins an elite group of Indian cricketers who have achieved this feat in the past. These previous top-ranked Indian batsmen include legendary players such as Sachin Tendulkar, MS Dhoni, and Virat Kohli, who have all been dominant forces in international cricket.
Gill’s rise to the top of the ODI batting rankings signifies his growing stature in the cricketing world and showcases the depth of talent in Indian cricket. It also marks the end of an era where Babar Azam had consistently held the top spot, making way for a new face at the pinnacle of ODI batting rankings.
