Dubai:

Champion batsman Sachin Tendulkar slipped out of the top 20 in the latest ICC ODI batting rankings issued on Saturday even as India skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni continues to lead the table.

Sachin, a victim of poor umpiring in the series against Sri Lanka managing scores of 5, 6 and 7 in three of the five matches he played, lost nine places to be at 21st position in the ODI charts.

The biggest movers were left-handers Yuvraj Singh and Gautam Gambhir.

The flamboyant Yuvraj jumped four places to number three while Gambhir climbed eight spots to 12th position.

The Punjab batsman scored 284 runs at an average of 56.80 to help India win the series 4-1 against Sri Lanka.

Gambhir's opening partner Virender Sehwag also returned to the top 20 as he gained six places to take the 15th spot.

Left-arm paceman Zaheer Khan moved out of the top 10 to be at 14th spot in the bowlers' list headed by New Zealand spinner Daniel Vettori.

There is no Indian cricketer in the the top-five all-rounders list, headed by Shakib Al Hasan of Bangladesh with 403 points.
