Sri Lanka skipper Angelo Mathews is the only Sri Lankan cricketer to feature in the latest ODI rankings announced by the International Cricket Council.

Mathews who is returning to international cricket after a long injury layoff is fourth among the list of allrounders as none of the Sri Lankan cricketers have made to the top 20 in either bowling or batting.

South African bowler Kagiso Rabada has replaced his team-mate, Imran Tahir, as the world's top ranked ODI bowler while skipper AB de Villiers remains the top-ranked ODI batsman.

Rabada moved up four places to take the top spot after his impressive performance at Lord's in the third ODI on Monday.

The Proteas lost their three-match series to England 2-1, but Rabada's haul of 4 for 39 in the final match on Monday helped him finish the series with seven wickets.

Rabada, 22, is the youngest No 1 bowler since Pakistan's Saqlain Mushtaq in 1998.

Meanwhile Bangladesh pipped Sri Lanka on decimal points to reach sixth rank for the first time, ahead of three former World champions - Sri Lanka, Pakistan and the West Indies. Both Bangladesh and Sri Lanka are on 93 points and eighth-ranked Pakistan on 88 points, giving these teams a chance to gain more points by upsetting better-ranked sides since the rankings are weighted to reflect the difference in points.
