Indian women's team captain Jhulan Goswami went up a couple of notches to regain the number one spot in the latest ICC ODI Rankings issued on Monday.

Jhulan, who was the top-ranked bowler when the women's rankings were launched last year in October, has overtaken England's Isa Guha and Shelley Nitschke of Australia.

Jhulan's team-mates Rumeli Dhar and Amita Sharma have also made upward movement. Dhar, who took 10 wickets in the World Cup, has jumped two places to sixth while Sharma has lifted one place to share the 16th spot with South Africa's Ashlyn Kilowan.

In the batting list, former Indian captain Mithali Raj occupies the second spot. Englishwoman Claire Taylor, who finished as the leading batter at the World Cup with 324 runs, has retained the top spot.

Mithali's teammate Anjum Chopra has returned to the top 20 in 18th place. Chopra finished the tournament with 164 runs.
