Mohammed Siraj has become to world's No. 1 bowler in the men's ODI rankings for the first time, replacing Trent Boult at the top after India swept New Zealand 3-0 at home. Shubman Gill, meanwhile, has moved up 20 spots to No. 6 on the batters' table, one place above Virat Kohli, after scoring 360 runs in the three ODIs against New Zealand, including a double-century and a century.

Siraj was third on the wicket-takers table for the series against New Zealand after picking up five wickets in two games, behind Shardul Thakur and Kuldeep Yadav, who both had six strikes. But that haul made it 14 wickets in five ODIs - with the three games against Sri Lanka in the earlier series added - for him, and contributed to his rise past Boult, who didn't travel to India and last played ODI cricket in September last year. Boult is currently in third place, with Josh Hazlewood at No. 2.

Gill, too, has been in stellar form, with 207 runs in the three-ODI series against Sri Lanka in January, including a century and a half-century. Kohli hasn't been too shabby himself, scoring a century against Sri Lanka and then one more against New Zealand.
