Injured batsman Rohit Sharma slipped three places to be 12th, while his regular ODI opening batting partner Shikhar Dhawan was in the joint 14th spot with England's Jos Butler.

Among the bowlers, no Indian found a place in the top-10 with Akshar Patel being the highest placed at 12th, a drop of three positions. Following him closely was Amit Mishra at the joint 14th position.

The Indian team was unchanged at the third position in the team rankings.
