A clinical 10-wicket win against England at the Kennington Oval on Tuesday helped India to overtake arch-rival Pakistan in the latest ICC ODI rankings. After bundling out Jos Buttler & Co for a paltry 110, the Men in Blue chased down an easy total on what was a tricky wicket in just 18.4 overs.
The victory continued Rohit Sharma’s unbeaten streak in ODIs since his appointment as Virat Kohli’s successor, making it four wins out of four.
India jumped to the third spot on the ranking list. Before the game, the Men in Blue were placed fourth with 105 points, but the win propelled them to 108 rating points, leaving Pakistan behind at 106.
Ace pacer Jasprit Bumrah was the wrecker in chief with a six-wicket haul that saw England crumble to the lowest total (110) against India in ODIs. The rest of the pacers rallied around Bumrah, with Mohammed Shami snaring three wickets and Prasidh Krishna picking up one.
