India star pace bowler Jaspreet Bumrah has added to his ever-growing list of accolades by becoming the world’s top-ranked one-day bowler on the latest MRF Tyres ICC Men’s ODI Player Rankings.

From his match-winning spell of 6/19 in the opening match of the three-match ODI series against England at The Oval on Tuesday, Bumrah has claimed the top place in the bowler rankings by New Zealand pacer Trent Boult.

The latest set of rankings was released by the ICC on Wednesday and Bumrah jumped five places to claim the top billing in the 50-over game.

Jaspreet Bumrah was at his intelligent best against Jos Buttler’s side as he used the new ball expertly to rip through England’s world-class top-order, before returning later in the innings to complete the demolition.

His effort stood out in a dominant performance and India’s great cricketer Sachin Tendulkar took to social media after the match to praise the classy right-arm quick.

Jaspreet Bumrah is one of only three bowlers to be ranked in the top 10 for Tests and ODI cricket and earlier this month made history when he was at the crease when England quick Stuart Broad conceded a world record 35 runs in one over of a Test match.

New Zealander pacer Trent Boult drops to second behind Bumrah, with Pakistan pacer Shaheen Afridi (third), Australia seamer Josh Hazelwood (fourth), and Afghanistan spinner Mujeeb Ur Rahman (fifth) rounding out the top five.

Bumrah’s new-ball fellow Mohammed Shami too made a jump up the rankings for bowlers, with the pacer rising three places to equal 23rd on the back of his three-wicket haul against England.

Captain Rohit Sharma top-scored for India in that match with an unbeaten 76, but the India captain still remains in fourth place on the rankings for batters.

He does, however, move within a solitary rating point of team-mate and third-placed batter Virat Kohli and could rise above the former captain with further good performances during the remainder of the series.
