Bangladesh off-spinner Mehidy Hasan advanced three places to reach the second position in the latest ICC Men's rankings for bowlers in ODIs on Wednesday, becoming only the third bowler from his country to be ranked in the top two in the ODI format. Mehidy returned with the bowling figures of four wickets for 30 and three wickets for 28 in the first two ODIs for Bangladesh in its ongoing series against Sri Lanka.

Before Mehidy, all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan had grabbed the number one position in 2009 for the first time while left-arm spinner Abdur Razzak is the other Bangladesh bowler to have been in the top two, reaching the second position in 2010.

Left-arm fast bowler Mustafizur Rehman is another one from Bangladesh to move up the list, his hauls of three for 34 and three for 16 lifted him eight places to ninth position. Rahim’s best position has been fifth, which he had attained in December 2018.

Mushfiqur Rahim, team player of the match in both ODIs, has moved up four places to a career-best 14th position after scoring 84 and 125.

Mahmudullah has advanced two places to the 38th position after his scores of 54 and 41.

For Sri Lanka, fast bowler Dushmantha Chameera’s haul of three for 44 in the second match has lifted him 11 places to joint-61st along with compatriot PWH de Siva, who too has advanced eight places.

Dhananjaya de Silva (up to nine places to 83rd) and Lakshan Sandakan (up to nine places to 94th) are among the other bowlers that gained in the latest weekly update which also includes performances in the two-match series between Netherlands and Scotland.
