After the completion of the T20 series against Australia we have seen a massive growth in the rankings of Indian players. India is truly a very successful team when you look at ICC rankings but the only thing, they are lacking is the ICC trophy. In this article, we will tell you all the No.1 ICC rankings held by India and Indian players.
India in team rankings is at No.1 in all formats. They are ruling every format of the game. In T20Is they are at No.1 with 265 points leaving England at second by 6 points. In ODIs, even after losing the World Cup final, they are ranked No.1 because of the domination they showed in the 2023 World Cup. They are No.1 in ODIs with 121 points. When it comes to tests, the India team ranks as the No.1 test team in the World. They played two back-to-back finals of WTC. They are No.1 in tests with 118 points.
Indian batsmen are No.1 in two formats. In T20Is the No.1 batsman in the World is none other than the present T20 captain of the team, Surya Kumar Yadav. SKY has been No.1 for a very long time now. He has maintained his position with his performance in this format. In ODIs, we have India’s Prince, Shubman Gill who is at No.1 spot in ODIs. 2023 is his year where he delivered in every format he played.
In bowlers, we again have two players on top of the ICC rankings. In tests, we have Indian off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin on top. Ashwin is one of the best spinners in test cricket at present. Next, we have someone who has just become No.1 after the completion of the T20 series against Australia. Ravi Bishnoi who is again a spinner is now the No.1 T20 bowler in the world.
In all-rounder rankings we have only one Indian all-rounder who is No.1. The Rockstar, Ravindra Jadeja is the No.1 ranked all-rounder in test cricket. He is at No.1 with 455 points. He is a very important player for India in tests with both bat and ball.
