Indian wicketkeeper-batsman Mahendra Singh Dhoni (MSD) on Monday has moved up three places in the latest ICC rankings for ODI batsmen.

The former Indian skipper, who is now at the 17th spot, had scored three successive boundaries - 51, 55 not out and 87 not out - and played a significant role in India's first ever bilateral series win in Australia.

Meanwhile, Kedar Jadhav also vaulted eight places to be at the 35th position in the ODI rankings for batsmen. 

Moreover, regular India skipper Virat Kohli, who was rested for the last two ODIs against New Zealand, continues to hold the No.1 spot with 887 points. 

Rohit Sharma, who stood in as India captain in the absence of Kohli, is at the second place with 854 points while his opening partner Shikhar Dhawan is at the 10th spot with 744 points. 

The Indians also dominate the ODI rankings for bowlers as pacer Jasprit Bumrah topped the charts while chinaman Kuldeep Yadav and leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal are at the fourth and fifth place respectively.
