Woakes was the major gainer in the bowler’s rankings, advancing three places to a career-best fourth position after finishing with six wickets in the series. His contribution of 89 runs also sees him move into second place on the allrounder rankings just behind Afghanistan’s Mohammed Nabi.

Jofra Archer gained 18 slots to reach a career-best 10th place after finishing with seven wickets in the series including his match-winning effort of 3/34 in the second ODI.

Maxwell and Carey take a giant leap after heroics

Australia batsmen Glenn Maxwell and Alex Carey were involved in a 212-run fifth-wicket stand that helped Australia complete a thrilling three-wicket victory in the final match to take the series 2-1.

Maxwell gained five places to take a share of 26th position along with Paul Stirling of Ireland after scoring 186 runs in the series. Carey is right behind the pair after his total of 152 runs elevated him 11 places to a career-best 28th position on the batting rankings.

Billings on the up

Others to move up in the list include Australia’s Marnus Labuschagne (up 20 places to a career-best 63rd) and Sam Billings of England, who makes it into the top 100 for the first time after scoring 118 in the first match and finishing with 183 runs in the series, behind only Bairstow and Maxwell.

Australia fast bowler Josh Hazlewood has returned to the top 10 for the first time in nearly two years, his player of the match performance of 3/34 in the first match the highlight of a four-wicket tally. He has moved up from 15th to eighth position. Adam Zampa’s series-topping 10 wickets have lifted him to 21st position.
