The superstar Indian skipper Virat Kohli kept his dominance alive on the top position of the latest ICC ODI Player Rankings 2019. The 31-year-old incredible right-handed batsman is leading the current ODI rankings with 895 rating points in his kitty. While his Indian fellow Rohit Sharma is just 32 points away from the number one spot. Currently, Sharma is holding the second spot in ODI rankings with 863 points.
However, Kohli missed out the recently concluded T20I series between India and Bangladesh as he was on a short break for the past few weeks.

Now the Indian cricket team is prepping for an upcoming two-match Test series against Bangladesh on the home soil and this time the hosts will be led by Virat Kohli.
Both India and Bangladesh will start their prestigious Test campaign against each other from November 14th. Notably, Indian cricketers will play their first-ever Day-Night Test at historic Eden Gardens in Kolkata during the final encounter against Bangladesh. While the opening encounter is scheduled to be played at Holkar Stadium in Indore.

Bumrah is followed by New Zealand’s star pacer Trent Boult who is sitting at the number second position in the bowlers’ list as per the latest ICC ODI Player Rankings.
