Miraz moves up 4th in ODI bowling rankings

Bangladesh all-rounder Mehidy Hasan Miraz and Ireland batsman Paul Stirling have made notable gains in the MRF Tyres ICC Men’s ODI Player Rankings after some fine performances in the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup Super League.

Off-spinner Miraz was the most successful bowler in the series against the West Indies which his side-swept 3-0 and his effort reflects in the latest update to the ODI rankings. Mehidy has progressed nine spots to take fourth position after grabbing seven wickets including a haul of four for 25 in the second ODI that won him the player of the match award.

Left-arm fast bowler Mustafizur Rahman’s six wickets in the series have lifted him from 19th to the eighth position while other Bangladesh players to gain in the latest rankings update include Shakib Al Hasan (up 15 places to 13th among bowlers) and Mushfiqur Rahim (up one place to 15th among batsmen) after their player of the match performances in the first and third matches, respectively.

Captain Tamim Iqbal (up one place to 22nd) and Mahmudullah (up five places to 49th) among batsmen and Mohammad Saifuddin (up three places to 43rd) among bowlers have also advanced for Bangladesh while West Indies fast bowler Alzarri Joseph has gained 11 slots to reach 34th position.
