Dubai:

India skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni mantained his numero uno status while his deputy Yuvraj Singh continued to hold on to the second spot in the latest ICC ODI Players Ranking issued on Monday.

Apart from Dhoni and Yuvraj, master blaster Sachin Tendulkar (7th spot) and Delhi dasher Virender Sehwag (9th) are the other two Indians to feature in the top 10 ODI batsmen chart.

However, no Indian features among top 10 ODI bowlers with left-arm pacer Zaheer Khan languishing at the 17th spot in the list which is being headed by Sri Lankan Nuwan Kulasekara, followed New Zealand skipper Daniel Vettori and Shakib Al Hasan of Bangladesh.

Yuvraj is also occupying the second place in the all-rounders chart with 362 rating points behind Shakib (427), while South African Jacques Kallis is third with 332 points.

Meanwhile, Australia's loss in the last match against England turned out to be a gain for India as Mahendra Singh Dhoni's men rose back to the second spot in the ODI team rankings.

Australia were unable to complete an unprecedented 7-0 clean sweep over England on Sunday as Ricky Ponting's men went down by four wickets in the final ODI of the series in Durham.

As a result, Australia's brief return to the top of the ODI Championship table ended with the team falling to third again while South Africa regained the number-one position.
