• Tahir celebrates Test recall

    Imran Tahir has taken the No 1 spot on the ICC’s latest rankings for ODI bowlers.

    Mitchell Starc has failed to defend his No 1 position after he managed just five wickets in the series between Australia in England, which the Aussies won 3-2. This meant he conceded 70 points, which has resulted in him dropping behind wrist spinner Tahir to second place.

    AB de Villiers and Hashim Amla remain at the top of the ODI batting rankings at No 1 and No 2 respectively while Dale Steyn is still the fifth best ODI bowler in the world.
