Bangladesh can move ahead of West Indies if it wins the series 3-0

ICC World Twenty20 champion England and world champion India resume their battle for position in the Reliance ICC ODI Championship table when they go head to head in the five-ODI series, which starts in Hyderabad on Friday.

England is currently in fourth position, leading fifth-placed India by just a ratings point. However, all this can change depending how the series pans out. And with number-one ranked Australia also ready to lock horns with third-placed South Africa from next Wednesday at Centurion, there is the possibility of plenty of movement at the top of the order.

In the second half of the table, Bangladesh hosts the West Indies in a three-ODI series from Thursday with the home side eyeing an upward movement.

Eighth-ranked West Indies leads Bangladesh in ninth place by 15 ratings points but the team placings will reverse if Bangladesh wins all the three matches. If this happens, Bangladesh will gain a place on the table as it would earn a swing of 16 ratings.

Meanwhile, in the Reliance ICC Player Rankings for ODI batsmen, England’s Jonathan Trott, who won the Sir Garfield Sobers Trophy for the ICC Cricketer of the Year award at the LG ICC Awards in London last month, is in fourth position and will be aiming to improve his ranking further.

The 30-year-old trails second-ranked AB de Villiers of South Africa by 54 ratings points and third-ranked Shane Watson of Australia by 10 ratings points. But given he is in a qualification period for batsmen*, it is likely that he will move even further up the ladder depending on how he performs in the series.

Trott, who has scored 1,596 runs in 35 ODIs, including 1,113 runs from 24 matches this year, had also played an integral role in England’s 3-0 win over India earlier this English summer when he scored 111 runs which had helped him gain two places in the rankings.

The next highest-ranked England batsman after Trott is captain Alastair Cook who is in 42nd position while Kevin Pietersen and Ian Bell are in 52nd and 55th positions, respectively with Ravi Bopara sitting in 65th spot.

India boasts three batsmen inside the top 15 with captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni leading from the front. He is in sixth position and will be keen to regain the coveted number-one position he surrendered to AB de Villiers after the tri-nation series in Sri Lanka last August. Dhoni trails fifth-ranked Kumar Sangakkara of Sri Lanka by 13 ratings points while he is 16 ratings points behind Trott.

The other India batsmen aiming to climb up the ladder include Virat Kohli (ninth), Gautam Gambhir (14th) and Suresh Raina (30th).

The highest-ranked Bangladesh and West Indies batsmen are Shakib Al Hasan and Lendl Simmons in 23rd and 49th, respectively.

In the Reliance ICC Player Rankings for ODI bowlers, England’s Graeme Swann will be hoping to strengthen his position on top of the tree. The off-spinner leads second-ranked New Zealand spinner Daniel Vettori by 27 ratings points.

In the absence of James Anderson and Stuart Broad, Tim Bresnan is England’s highest-ranked bowler in 27th position.

Likewise, India will also be without its four frontline bowlers – Ashish Nehra, Zaheer Khan, Ishant Sharma, Munaf Patel and Harbhajan Singh. In their absence, Praveen Kumar is the highest-ranked India bowler in 21st position.

Bangladesh left-arm spinners Abdur Razzak and Shakib Al Hasan are inside the top 20 in 14th and 17th positions, respectively, followed by West Indies’ pace duo of Ravi Rampaul and Darren Sammy in 30th and 31st positions, respectively.
