India opener Rohit Sharma has moved up to grab fifth position among batsmen in the ICC ODI Player Rankings after the three-match series against Sri Lanka which India wrapped up 2-1 on Sunday with an emphatic eight-wicket victory in the final ODI in Visakhapatnam.

Sharma has gained two slots and it is the first time that he has crossed the 800-point mark. Though he has enjoyed a career-high ranking of third in February 2016, he reached a personal high of 825 points after the second match in Mohali when he struck an unbeaten 208, his third ODI double-century. He has ended the series with 816 points.

Rohit’s opening partner Shikhar Dhawan, named player of the series, too has gained one slot to reach 14th position after aggregating 168 runs including an unbeaten 100 in Visakhapatnam. Dhawan had slammed 68 in the second match, figuring in a 115-run opening stand with Sharma.

Among their bowlers, leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal has moved up 23 places to take 28th place after finishing with six wickets in the series, Chinaman bowler Kuldeep Yadav has moved up 16 places to take a career-best 56th slot while all-rounder Hardik Pandya has gained 10 slots to also reach a career-best 45th position.
